Ok, so we were really back on Friday but I wasn’t going to miss the glorious weekend sunshine by sitting indoors on the computer was I?
Anyway, we had a fabulous time at Butlins in Skegness. So much so, we’re already planning our next trip there!
If you’ve never been you’re missing out! If you’ve got children it is such a great place. We took C back in October when she was just 4 mths and, although she couldn’t go on any rides, we enjoyed taking her swimming and she enjoyed all the lights and sounds of the shows.
This time was even better! She could go in the soft play area, on a couple of rides and we spent over an hour in the pool on our first day. She liked the shows, as did M and I!
The weather at the beginning of the week was ok but not brilliant but by Thursday it was hot! We spent a few hours on the beach, something that confused C to begin with as the sand felt funny! She soon got used to it and decided she liked it so much she’d see what it tasted like. She didn’t do that again!
We bought a kite, for C obviously, and me & M had fun flying that!
I even got to read a whole book during C’s afternoon naps!
We also met up with some of M’s family who live in Skegness while we were there which was nice, as some of them had not met C before, including her great-grandparents.
It was a really nice week and I was sad to leave on Friday. We will definitely return, maybe in the Autumn.
But for now, its back to normality, although it is almost a bank holiday!
