Hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend! Wasn’t the weather fabulous on Monday!
(Apologies for the photo quality – these are all iPhone snaps!)
We didn’t do a great deal on Friday & Saturday as Nick was still being a busy beaver working away on the house (which is coming on slowly but very nicely now!)
He decided to have Sunday off (mainly because B&Q was shut!) so we took Huxley and his scooter to the park and scooted off to feed the ducks. He was pretty excited about this as he’s been reading his new Bing book non-stop for weeks and spent the whole time going ‘wak wak wak’. He didn’t quite get the concept of the bread though and kept eating it.

When we got home, Elsie and Hadley turned up and Neile had planned an Easter egg hunt around the house for all the kids. They had loads of fun running around and filling their little baskets and playing with bubbles. I’m not sure Huxley knew exactly what he was doing and I don’t think he twigged that he could eat the things he was picking up but he was happy to toddle about following Elsie and copying what she was doing.
On Monday Nick went back to work at the house and my friends Lauren and Ben and their little girl Lexi came to pick me up in the their car (yes, I was very squished in the back with two car seats!) and we headed for the beach. We scoffed some chips and drove around for quite a while looking for a parking space. We were just about to give up and go home when we found a spot literally right on the beach. Winner!
Huxley loved the beach as much as ever. I was worried he’d have forgotten about it or got scared of the sand and sea since we moved away but he was desperate to go in the sea and threw a massive paddy when I stopped him paddling (his little toes were frozen!).
