Our Easter plans

Easter has to be one of my favourite times of the year. Two whole weeks off school (which means no school runs - yeah), the weather is generally nice enough to enjoy full days out and Easter bank holidays signal the first family BBQ or picnic of the year.

This year, we have lots of plans including visiting the Easter chicks and lambs at Down at the Farm, a children's cookery course at Outcook Alnwick, Game of thrones night at Life, Fish n chips on Good Friday, Alice and Wonderland Trail at Belsay Hall, an egg hunt at Washington Old Hall, a trip to Amsterdam Zoo and hopefully a visit to the Good Food show in Harrogate.

One part of Easter I do find particularly important is the chance to get together with family. We all lead such busy lives and Easter day is one of the few days in the year that the whole family is brought together. I remember Easter parties at my grandparents house when I was younger and this is the sort of memory I want my children to grow up with. Family gatherings enable us to spend some proper quality time with the elderly members of our family we don't get to see very often and are sometimes the only chance we have to check everything is ok with their hearing, sight and wellbeing. 

What are your plans this Easter plans this year? Will you be meeting up with family? I'll leave you with a few photo's from previous family Easter gatherings.

Although blurry, I love this snap of the family chatting to grandad via Skype when he was working away over Easter in 2011.

  1. I love Easter time it's such a fab opportunity to be with family #nebloggers

    1. It really is Karen - I think we spend more time with our family over Easter than Christmas!

  2. We always try and have a family get together over Easter and try and go on as many day trips as possible. Sounds like you're going to have an action packed 2 weeks! x

    1. I know - I think I might need a holiday after the Easter hols! LOL!
