We have had a wonderful Easter break, I genuinely feel sad
to see the boys back at school. It’s
been lovely having so much quality time together as a family, we have managed
to fit so much into this holiday and we were blessed with some glorious sunshine
too which was a welcome bonus for the second week.
We had the mandatory Easter Egg hunt around the garden, the boys still believe in the Easter bunny so they stay hidden inside whilst daddy and
the “bunny” get on with the important job of hiding eggs. After when the Easter bunny has made a clear
getaway (driving his eggmobile no less!) the boys were ready, armed with little
buckets to fill with treats.
We have more space this year to hide chocolate treats so its was more fun than usual.
The boys have been making the most of the sunshine to play outdoors. It’s great the trampoline, go-kart and bikes are getting more use again now its so pleasant to be outside. We hopped in the car and went for a long walk, we are blessed with Wales being so beautiful and green we have plenty of choice in the area to tire my two adventurers.
The boys have been trying their hand at some new activities, they threw a pot and had a kayaking lesson over the holiday.

I love that they get to experience new things, you never know when one particular activity might spark a life long love for something. Our memories shape who we are and I want the boys to have a diverse and interesting childhood. My parents seemed to have the same philosophy and I was in a vast array of clubs and groups as a youngster.
We enjoyed seeing a panto and doing lots of heckling, he is behind you! It’s great the boys and their friends have the attention span now to sit totally captured in the story.
We also squeezed in a LEGO workshop and the boys learnt some animation fundamentals and had the opportunity to help build a castle.

So with all of that its no surprise really that we all felt a little down when it was back to school, but we will get used to the routine again and look forward to half term and more fun times.
