How was your Easter? We spent our Easter weekend in Anglesey. We are fortunate to be able to visit Anglesey a few times a year since my in-laws have a caravan there. It’s such a lovely part of the country and perfect for families. We travelled down Friday morning and unfortunately, the weather was not good so we spent most of the afternoon in the caravan. I did take a quick walk to the beach with E in the pushchair when she was fighting nap time. Even in the drizzle, it was nice to get out.
On Saturday, we went to Plas Newydd to do the Easter egg hunt. The weather was dry at least, sunny but quite cold. We enjoyed finding the clues, playing in the park and discovering a tree house.
Easter Sunday was very wet. We had an indoor egg hunt in the morning. We did manage to spot a break in the rain so we walked down to the beach again. I took F for a splash in the sea in our wellies. She loved it but unfortunately, the drizzle restarted so we headed back to the caravan. We got drenched on the walk back as the drizzle changed to a full on downpour.
There was no rain on Monday so we enjoyed another short walk at a local country park. We saw baby ducks, hunted for the Gruffalo in the woods and climbed a “mountain” (ok so it was a hill but to F it was a mountain). When it all got a bit much for F’s little legs, her daddy was there to carry her back to the car.
I think E is going to be an outdoor lover too. She smiled and giggled away whenever we were outside. She’s become so interactive this last week and demands attention. She giggles and claps at anyone who looks at her. She even did her longest sleep in months on Sunday evening. Unfortunately it was a one-off but still, it gives us hope.
All too soon it was time to drive home but even with the mixed weather we had a lovely weekend and had lots of outdoor fun. F was not happy to leave and declared she was staying in the caravan forever!
