Our Easter

On Easter Sunday we headed to one of our favourite places for a family day out, Piglets Farm. It has recently just opened up for the season which is music to our ears. We love it there!


We started our Sunday with a lazy breakfast. By lazy I mean later than usual. Whilst I was busy getting Little Miss and Mr ready for the day we had a very special visitor. The Easter bunny came and decorated our garden with lots of little eggs and left two Easter buckets to collect them all up in. Little Mr was eager to find the eggs and made sure he left some for his sister to find too which was really sweet. 



                                 
                                 
                                 
                                   
                                               


                                   
                                  


They were both very lucky and reviewed lots and lots of chocolate from family and friends.



After our egg hunt and of course some chocolate testing we got ready to head to Piglets. Both Little Mr and Little Miss were excited to see some animals. Little Mr had requested to see the donkeys of all things. Little miss was rather infatuated with the smaller animals especially the chicks and the rabbits.
Our first stop on the farm was the event gazebo for the Easter Eggstravaganza. This was a hive of activity where children were decorating eggs and excitidely receiving their egg hunt prizes. We had recently decorated our own eggs at home so they were both keen to do the egg hunt and quickly sat down to listen to the instructions.
They each received a basket and had to find six different coloured eggs hidden around the park behind some large chickens. This was a great egg hunt and kept both of the children engaged and excited to find more. Plus they looked really cute with their baskets.  


              





One of our favourite parts of the farm is the petting shed. A particular favourite as always been the cow that can be milked. Little Miss loved the rabbits and stood watching them for ages. We are currently thinking about getting some rabbits I just need to convince the hubby a little more.



                                            




                                       

When we finished the egg hunt we explored the rest of the parks activities. First stop was the barrel rid before heading into the sandpit. We spent an age here digging, tipping and burying objects. There is also a digger come slide which Little Miss loves as did her brother when he was her age. We then headed to the bouncy pillows. I stayed with Little Miss on the smaller one whilst Mr H took Little Mron the bigger one. We even had a go too, well it would be rude not to.

In the middle of the park is a crazy golf course. So we had a round of golf here, of course Little Mr won. Little Miss completed the golf shoeless and wellie less as she had decided that she didn’t want to wear anything. Luckily it was a lovely dry day, however if it was wet I am sure she would have changed her mind. My favourite part of the day had to be the large chicken sumo suits which I just had to make Mr H try on. We ended the day by going on the tractor ride before heading home 
                                  
 

Our week that was!

We have had a lovely week even though it has rained and rained. This week was a blank canvas as our usual classes and play groups were cancelled because of half term. Weeks like this are my favourite type, lazy mornings, late breakfasts, endless games at home and seeing friends and family without the need to dash and clock watch.

Saturday
We met one of my oldest and bestest friends for a spot of lunch and catch up in town. We don’t see each other that often so iris always great to catch up. I then headed out with her later minus the kiddies and husband for more drink, this time lots of adult ones. Oh and a spot of dancing too, we had such fun which was long over due.
 
Sunday
Today started with a small (huge) hangover, I am not sure I can party like the old times any more. However  I found myself overcompensating for my hangover so probably got more accomplished than I may have otherwise. A high light of the day was heading to the cinema to watch Postman Pat the movie. Well the movie was pretty lame if I am honest but Little Mr loved it. So did Little Miss though she had a snooze mid film, oh how I wish I could have done the same. 
 
Monday
On Monday we headed over to my In-laws for a Birthday Buffet. They are both having birthdays over the next week but will be away on holiday so we took our presents and the card that Little Mr and Little Miss made for their Grandma. We made her an extra special card as she will be having a milestone Birthday.
                                        
                               
Tuesday
Today we headed to Sheffield. We stopped for a spot of lunch with friends from my university days. We are all getting married and having babies now so there is always something new and exciting to catch up on. This time it was a friends engagement proposal in New York. It took me back as that is where me and the hubby got engaged.  After lunch we headed to a soft play as there is only so long you can expect toddlers to sit nicely for. I love watching our children play together.
                                
Wednesday
This was our lazy day of the week, well lazy morning anyway. We had a lie in, well I class 8 am as a lie in don’t you?! We were awake but we just stayed snuggled under the quilt watching TV. Later I had an appointment with my health visitor to discuss Little Miss’s allergic reactions and see how she was. So I dropped Little Mr off at my Mums. The weather was pants yet again so we got caught out in a down pour mid journey from the car to the childrens centre. On our return we were greeted with some fabulous post on our doormat. Our Merlin annual family pass from Kellogg’s had arrived. We are so excited to start using it.
                        

Thursday
                       

We started today building a fireman/camper small world. Little Mr loves creating his own stories with the figures. At the moment he seems to love being the hero whilst I get to be the monkey/dragon/monster *delete as appropriate. We then headed to my Dads for a cuppa and a catch up. We spent the afternoon den making and ‘mountain’ climbing in the living room.

                                    

Today was also a big day for Little Miss. We put her in her own room in her cot for the first time on a night. She only lasted a couple of hours but still it’s a start.
                                     

Friday
We visited a local petting farm today called Piglets. We love visiting as there is always loads to do. We were a little worried about the weather but it stayed dry albeit cloudy all day. Our highlights were Little Mr Miss and myself all jumping on the bouncy pillows, riding the blue tractors and Little Mr’s favourite, seeing a sheep get a ‘haircut’.
We have had a lovely chilled week with little clock watching, but we have missed all our usual groups so will be looking forward to them next week.
Have you had a good week? What have you been upto?
