Easter weekend in Anglesey

Easter weekend in Anglesey

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 (full post on this to come next week). 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 weekend in Anglesey

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 at the caravan forever!

    Oh wow gorgeous photos and you are so lucky to be able to visit there often! I’ve never been but it looks stunning. I’m glad you had a lovely weekend despite the weather. I’ve just bought those butterfly coats for both my girls for next winter, I’m pleased to see how lovely it looks!

      The weather could have been better but also a lot worse. We did make the most of it.

    It looks like you had a fab getaway to Anglesey, it looks like a beautiful place to explore. I love F’s imagination, hunting for Gruffalo and climbing mountains sound like the perfect way to spend Easter Monday. It’s great that despite the rain you still managed to enjoy some wonderful adventures in the fresh air over the Easter Weekend.

    Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

    I love Anglesey! My in-laws had a caravan there too (at Benllech) so we used to go with the dogs all the time. So sad they have just given it up – I would have loved to take the baby (and any future siblings) there for holidays like this. I suppose we still can, it will just cost a lot more sadly! x

      We are over the other side. I’ve not really been to Benllech. It is a lovely place for families
