Easter Holidays

The time has come!

This weekend we will be heading off to enjoy some time away as a family. Come rain or shine the seven of us are looking forward to quality time - and probably a few spats, wobbles and tantrums - down by the seaside. We've got our wellies, we've got our raincoats, we've got our optimism that the sun will have his hat on... We're all set!

Gap Kids zip front windbreaker Spring jacket
I managed to find these fantastic Spring jackets for the boys from Gap, and I managed to get them for a bargain price after doubling up on promotional codes (one a promo on the site, the other a 15% off reward for signing up to their newsletter). They're lovely quality, thick without being heavy with a super-soft jersey lining.
H chose green and L went for blue, and I saved a massive £22.64 using the codes - I do love a bargain! These will be perfect for our holiday, and ideal for the boys to wear to school as a Spring/Summer coat. I promise that H likes it a great deal more than he appears to in the photo...

My brother and his fiancée are house & dog sitting for us, and the Mister and I have been saving for day trips & dinners, and planning activities for us all to do while we are there. I am hopeful that it will be a really lovely Easter break for us all.

I've booked the groceries to arrive within a couple of hours of when we are due back and meal planned for next week including our Easter roast, so we're all prepared for the first week of the Easter holidays when we return. It'll be nice to have some 'down time' before we throw ourselves into next term.

We don't have a great deal planned for the holidays after our weekend away, but we will be enjoying some Easter baking and crafts as well as anticipating a visit from a certain bunny... Which now is really only for E's benefit but I am sure that the big four don't mind playing along if it means a basket of chocolate eggs for them!

Kids clothing bargains and family holidays are my reasons to be cheerful this week, what are yours? Link up with Michelle's #R2BC linky, hosted at Seasider In The City and share.
