Holiday!

Yes.. you're seeing right, I am back! Didn't leave it quite so long this time! 



We had our first ever family holiday, and it was perfect! The kids were well-behaved (for the most part) Craig was well behaved, and me.. well I always behave ;) 


We went to Great Yarmouth at the end of May, stayed on a caravan park called seashore... as the name suggests it is right by the beach! I already live near a beach and I love it, but these beaches were beautiful! Something about having a sit down, watching the kids throw stones into the sea, listening to the waves that really relaxes me... Only when its quiet mind, wouldn't be the same on a busy beach! 

Anyway...

We went for a week with the rest of my family, which was lovely, Lexi and Jakes cousins were there, It was great to spend time with everyone but we also broke away and spent some days just the four of us too! The first day we didn't do too much, just settled in and watched the kids get super excited about all the great stuff they could do! The second day, Myself, Craig and the kids took a wonder into Yarmouth and just walked... explored, this was the best day, I think maybe because Lexi was getting excited over everything! 

She rode donkeys, had her face painted, walked for miles with out moaning once, and we stood for about 30 minutes at a 2p machine trying to win an Elsa figure, we walked out with Anna, a frozen bracelet and Elsa, she fell right at the end! 

Lexi did so much during the days that she didn't really care much for the evening entertainment in the club house, we spend most nights in there, but she wasn't too fussed! I don't think she knew what to make of the dancing mascots to be honest!! Jakey enjoyed it more then Lexi, when he was awake that is!

Jakey loved this! Especially because it was a Mickey
Mouse castle!
We spent a whole day at the pleasure beach... the whole family came to that one, we spent 7 hours, yes, SEVEN HOURS in the place. Lexi really surprised me, at first she wouldn't go on anything remotely thrilling, but after her third attempt at getting on the caterpillar roller coaster she finally stayed on it, and after that she wanted to go on ALL the big ones, even the log flume which she was too small for. Obviously Jakey just slept most of the day, but that's ok, he did go on the safari train!  
This is the time she actually stayed on, with my sister!
"Mum, I did it, I am big and brave" <3

Now, the sea life centre is what I was looking forward to the most, I was so exited, we did this on our last proper day I think, I was queuing up bouncing around, looking forward to seeing some big scary sharks with Craig Jake and Lexi, it was a COMPLETE let down! They didn't even have and big sharks! It was over before it even started and Jake had a melt down the whole way round, But he did get a stuffed turtle at the end of it so a good day for him! 

Probably Lexis favourite part of the holiday was riding in a real life Cinderella carriage! She saw this while we was exploring on the first day and did not stop going on about it! The horses name was pepper, he was super adorable, and I think for the 3-4 minutes she got to ride in it, she felt like a real princess! You could probably actually hear my heart popping! 

We had so much fun and I cannot wait to go again next year! I don't think Lexi can either... Jake Probably can, I mean, he didn't even know we were on holiday! He did however end up despising the caravan by the end of the week, every time we walked into it he had a mini melt down! 

Great Yarmouth is a lovely place, I would definitely recommend it as a holiday destination.. I will probably give the sea life centre a miss next time though!

**TOTALLY forgot to mention the fish! that first day of exploring, where we walked the whole of Yarmouth strip and back again, Craig and Lexi (Craig) thought it would be a fab idea to try and win a fish. They won a fish, which I didn't think would survive the car journey home.. but it has, and he lives in our kitchen! His name always changes because Lexi can never decide, so its just a fish with no name, but yes.... we went to Yarmouth as a four, came back as a five!
