Our Busy Easter Weekend

This weekend has seemed to have flown by. For us it has been very busy, fun and exciting. We managed to fit so much in and have had such a relaxing time. Here is what we got up to:

Saturday: On Saturday we went to Fareham and we went shopping. Saturdays are normally short days as Ben goes to bed early in the morning as he works Friday nights. We normally go out in the afternoon once Ben had managed to catch up on a little sleep. It was Ben's birthday on Friday, so Ben wanted to spend some of his Birthday money which he received. Unfortunately the shopping centre there was quite disappointing as there were not a lot of decent shops in the shopping centre, so we left empty handed. On the way home Ben accidently took a wrong turning and we ended up in Portsmouth. We were stuck in loads of traffic for ages and Maxwell was not impressed. Fortunately there is a new road being built which no one really knows about and we managed to get onto the road, turn around and head home. Once home I stayed up late to prepare Maxwell's Easter Egg Hunt for him.


Sunday: Maxwell woke up to a letter from the Easter bunny and a fun Easter Egg Hunt round the house.  Unfortunately it was raining so we were unable to hunt around the garden. Maxwell did really well at finding the Easter goodies and he had a lot of fun finding them. Once the hunt was over Maxwell was rewarded with a new book and a new game, which I am hoping will help improve his speech a little. Once the hunt was over we got ready to go out for our Easter/Ben's Birthday meal. We decided to go to a local restaurant which is a short drive away. Overall we had a really lovely time at the meal and the food was great. We would love to return there again soon, perhaps when it is a little less busy.


Monday: Monday was my favourite day of our busy weekend. Monday saw us get up very early and go to Frankie and Bennys. I had won a £20 breakfast voucher with them recently so I was keen to try their breakfast out with Ben and Maxwell. We had a wonderful time and we were treated to full english breakfasts, pancakes and ice cream and even a sausage and egg muffin. As it was Bank holiday Monday, I am unsure if many people knew they were open as they were extremely quiet which meant we got great service and our food was delivered fast.
After we had ventured to Frankies, we popped home to get Maxwell's pushchair and made our way to the new shopping outlet in Whitley Village. It was quite busy as they had a charity event on however we managed to miss most of the crowd and finish our shopping before it was time to go home. We all got treated to a few bits and whilst there we even got to meet a few new friends.

 

Overall we had a fantastic weekend. I am looking forward to having lots more busy, fun weekends as soon as the weather picks up a little. Did you have a good Easter weekend? What activities did you get up to?

  20. Glad you had a good weekend. We did a soggy Easter egg hunt for the kids in the garden then spent the rest of the day trying to get more done in the kitchen (we're in the middle of fitting a new one) while the kids watched movies and ate chocolate!
