The Flavs arrive in Cyprus and hit the beach

On a beautiful early Summer afternoon, Sarah, Lee, Jude and Cari flew into Paphos from Bristol, UK. We met them in the arrival lounge and then swiftly loaded up the cars and headed back to Pissouri bay.

We spent the afternoon catching up on family News and showing the kids their holiday toys.






















On our first day with the Flav's we made our way down to Pissouri bay beach. Jude loved throwing stones in the sea with his dad. We then had lunch and the kids enjoyed an Ice cream, well...until Jude dropped his in Rob's lap.
