Our Easter!

Our Easter wasn’t what we expected it would be or hoped. However regardless of the poorly tummies, bad weather, snuffly colds and bed rest, we really did make the most of it.  After the first week of the children, Easter breaks the weather was awful. Constant rainfall, high winds and we were basically stuck indoors. But the second week brought sunshine, new picnic tables, chocolate eggs & a visit from Granda Patrick!

With poorly tummies and ill parents we honestly didn’t think we’d manage to throw the kids an Easter egg hunt ‘at Easter’ but thankfully we managed it & they had a blast!

I felt like a big child running around the house & garden hanging up little Easter bunny hunt signs and hiding golden bunnies & eggs. If we can’t act like big kids with our kids, when can we eh!


Annabelle wasn’t too sure if she should be eating the treats as she found them or collecting them all and trying to eat them all at once. Either way, her mind was on chocolate!

Granda Patrick took time out of his busy work schedule to pop round for a visit too. The kids got treated to Easter eggs and he brought round an awesome Easter gift for the kids in the form of a picnic table! Just the perfect gift for our impending Summer! It’s just gorgeous!


I can see many alfresco style dinners and picnic lunches being enjoyed on this little number!


Bunny ears are a must at the table over Easter! How cute are those ears though! Also, the weather was so good at one point the kids demanded they be soaked and the darling man didn’t need to be told twice! Between you & me…I think he enjoyed doing it as much as the kids enjoyed having it done on them!

Pure happy faces right there – you can’t buy those sort of smiles.


Would you believe the kids demanded a secondary soaking! Little crazies! Annabelle, of course, found her older siblings squealing, dancing about and dripping wet clothes quite amusing!

Then, quite naturally Annabelle took it upon herself to get soaked too, only by her own hand.


She’s such a funny girl – although judging by her face I don’t think she found being wet as fun as her older siblings! Is it bad her face in this photo makes me chuckle?


So that was our Easter. Apologies for the epic photo dump {I even had to hold onto a few!}. I’m just pleased the children had one good week of Easter holidays {including the amazing weather we’ve had!} and we managed to {through being ill} give them some great memories too. As making memories when your family is what it’s all about.

    Great photos. Love the one of Annabelle wet! Cute.

    Looks like you did a brilliant easter hunt for them, and I love that picnic table. We need one for our garden (well, a normal sized one), although N would love his own like this.

    I’m glad you had a good Easter despite the colds and bad weather. We had an Easter egg hunt indoors as the weather wasn’t great here either. Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky
