Easter Week 

Standard

As our Easter break comes to an end today, all returning to work tomorrow I thought I’d write a quick post on some of the activites we said we were going to do and how they fared. 

This year chocfest was pretty unavoidable but we limited it where we could as it evidently turned our child into a demented being!

  

All the activities we attended were great from Peter Rabbit story telling, Cadbury Easter Hunt and The Mad Hatter Tea Party which was cut short by a rain storm. The Cadbury’s hunt definitely upped their game from last year and it’s a real winner for kids of all ages but there sure ain’t any avoiding the chocolate there! 

  
  
Josh’s Creche embraced Easter too so lots of fun was had with his teachers and pals up there, we are very lucky with the Creche we chose and are so thankful he is so happy there.

  

We baked too which is something Josh just loves to help with for family on Sunday.

  

Sunday started with a basket from the Easter Bunny, alternative chocolate gifts included: A sticker book of a film we went to see on Monday, a Spot Easter book, new Playdoh, a small egg and a Peter Rabbit DVD!

  

We had a hunt in the garden, again, alternating chocolate eggs with plastic ones for Josh and his cousin to collect. 

    

I love every celebration but it seems Easter is getting bigger and bigger and I’m never adverse to hopping on a bandwagon so long may it continue.. Now what to do with all this chocolate so we can get our normal toddler back!!!

The last activity we did was a child free zone, we went on a day date. I love day dates, out early, home early {god I’m getting old}. Anyway it started with a bit of holiday shopping followed by a trip to The Guinness Storehouse. Neither of us had been and whilst the tickets are not cheap to be a tourist for a day it is well worth it. The building itself is impressive and the whole experience is well organised. It starts with an introduction and you are then left to your own devises. The Guinness Academy was a highlight for Ian and The Gravity Bar for me. Bring a non Guinness drinker Ian could avail of my ticket and experience both as part of the ticket charge. If you want to do both on one ticket you would pay an extra 5 euro. A really good day trip and for any overseas friends or family it would be a must! 

   

  
We also treated ourselves to the pre theatre in Chapter One and it’s one restaurant that never fails to impress. The service, the food and the room itself are all top of their game. It might be a bit out of the way for some but well worth the trip. 

  
  
A lovely Easter overall now roll on Springtime, it’s been nice to see a glimpse of you!
