Today we woke early (well the boys did!) as we still seem to be getting used to the loss of an hour with the change in the clocks. After some breakfast I headed out for a lovely morning walk on the beach with the boys. They love running around in the sand and spending time in the fresh air.
There is something really relaxing about walking along the beach on the coast with the waves crashing into the rocks and up to the sand. The kids also love it, running around in so much open space.
Having already been for a week in the Easter holidays where we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves we decided on a bit of a last minute short break back to the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca, in the small port resort of Cala Bona.
Over the course of the last 3 days we have spent time on a short, child-free break in the stunning Langdale valley in the English Lake District. We choose again, having stayed there previously, to stay at the Brimstone Hotel in the Langdale complex.
I have just returned from a few days a way in a lovely part of the UK that I have rarely spent time in before which Anglesey in north west wales. We (the family) spent a few days with my parents, them in their caravan and us (me and my wife) in a nearby hotel. The kids – well they of course wanted to stay in the caravan with grand parents.
This weekend we took the opportunity to have a short break in Wales at a fiends caravan. We headed out there straight after school on Friday evening and arrived around 19:00 for Fish and Chips.
Being half term we took the opportunity to get away and spend the week in Wales in a caravan. We made the trip to Barmouth, on the West coast of wales which although a 3 hour journey was hold-up free which as a bonus.
The holiday park we stayed on has a lovely pool and the first morning we spent some time in the pool with the boys. They love swimming especially when they are in the pool with their mum and I.
Today was our get away for the Easter break to the sunny Spanish Island of Majorca. We had an early start in order to at the airport for 0600 which meant a long day, which as I type is coming to an end. We had a fantastic week in the sun, not too hot and certainly not too cold. In fact we will be going back again very soon.
For the first part of the Easter break we decided to spend it with Grand Parents in the Caravan at Wirral Country Park caravan site. Having been before we knew it would be a lovely place to spend a few days with the children, with some interesting places to visit and of course lots to do on site for the kids.
Spent a lovely few days in the caravan with the boys. They played on the park, getting to know others on the site and enjoyed some walks about and about.
We also have some fabulous Barnsley chops on the BBQ which led to a discussion as to why they were called ‘Barnsley Chops’.
