Well my plan to keep my blog updated during the easter holidays failed. Think I was kept a bit to busy for that 🙂
Madalaine did a grand job of sticking to not eating toast for lent. It was something she loved and decided to give up herself. Think it took will-power some mornings getting ready for school!
So during the holidays I was on a hunt for things we could do to get out the house, but for as little money as possible..
Madalaine had a sleepover for a night in Dumfries, then as mentioned in the earlier post we had a couple of nights sleepover at home. A trip to Cream o Galloway in the awful weather and a trip to Stranraer to play at the park. (We did take a detour via Logan Botanical Gardens on the hope to attend a paper making activity.. But it happened to be the wrong day.. Oops.) Anyhow, the kids had fun playing on the ship..
After a go on the train around the park, a play on the ship and a go on the park..
..we decided it was too windy and to head somewhere a little more sheltered.
Kirroughtree ahoy! For a little girl that used to be too scared to go on the wooden balance boards a few years ago; her confidence must be building. She did not make it all the way along.. But she gave it a good go!
Aww Taylor, such a gorgeous boy. Have to say I was a little envious of him being all snuggled up and toasty in the wind!
We went to the chocolate factory one day.. What a rip off to get into! But Madalaine loved it, she got to play inside on their adventure play area.. Make a chocolate easter egg.. A marshmallow caterpillar and a solid circle decorated with sweets. I noticed she had to test the chocolate she was using on numerous occasions.. Just to ensure the quality was to a high standard ;p
She also enjoyed playing outside.. Especially on the dinosaur. She preferred the smaller one.. While Perri prefered the huge one!
Very brave! Madalaine also enjoyed sharing a slush puppy drink.. Her face when she got brain freeze after gulping it down was hilarious!! Poor thing!
