Ah, here we are. The first Monday of the school Summer Holidays. Of course, our holidays started earlier when we went away on July 18th to this glorious place!!!
The kids love this holiday resort. It’s especially my youngests favourite place in the world. This year, the weather was very kind and we basked in 27oC temperatures most days. We got to spend alot of our time outside and really enjoyed ourselves.
We had an onsite funfair, swimming pool, 3 kiddies parks, an indoor soft play area, an indoor fun pool, kids clubs in the morning, afternoon and family entertainment every night.
and Mr Maker:
Liam really wanted to see Mr Maker. He loves the “I am a shape” song and dance so was not disappointed when this was featured as part of the show.
We watched The Wheel Of Death which was clever, but much more exciting in the title rather than the practice. That said, you wouldn’t catch me doing THIS over concrete:
We spent the days by the pool, at the funfair, walking into the town, spending time on the beach. We made the most of the break and as the kids get older, it becomes less and less stressful. Even hubby and myself can relax with a cheeky bottle of beer or cider.
Holiday highlights were watching my Liam ride a pony for the first time
Watching the kids enjoy themselves with simple things.
We all really enjoyed the holiday and then Matthew went off to London for the weekend to stay with his aunt and uncle so he had a lovely extended break. He came back having visited numerous museums, seeing free sporting events, getting free ice cream on Regent Street and most importantly of all, visiting Chelsea FC. He now has a new football team he supports! Which is good because we’ve been trying to get him to support a British team over Barcelona for a little while.
The days back have been fun. As well as catching up with the washing from 7 days of holiday we’ve also had friends round for a barbecue, trips to visit family, walks to the library and shops. Enjoyed a takeaway or 2 and now we officially start the holidays wondering what to do on nice days with a limited budget. Whatever we do, we started the summer on a high and will not be topping it in a hurry.
