An Easter Break in Bridport / Our week in Pictures

Some pictures from our time in Dorset over the Easter Holidays. We've ended up going to visit Tom's mum almost every year since Wilf was a baby (both kids has their first dip in the sea there!) it's become a sort of accidental tradition and of course, their granny loves to make them an Easter egg hunt!

You can actually see a post I wrote when Wilf was the same age as Mabli and oddly wearing the exact same jumper (wasn't planned but maybe it was subconsciously?). This is why I love that I blog! So many memories captured over the years

Wilf is at such a fun age now where he can play games with me and Tom that we all enjoy. He learned how to play draughts this year and embarrassingly beat me almost immediately.

These two. The age gap isn't always the easiest, I feel like it comes in waves, so easy to start with (a newborn and a 4-year-old was a dream) sometimes through the gap feels frustrating when their interests are so far apart. I think the hardest part is that we have to let Mabli off some behavior that we can't let Wilf do or ask him to be the bigger person/slow down/let her win the race etc. I do think it's good for him to learn to share and be gracious in this way but at times I really feel for him as he's also still so little.

Anyway, there are certain comment interests, an Easter Egg hunt is age appropriate for all. In fact, granny made sure Tom and I had some eggs to hunt too haha.

This is Burton Bradstock beach (a little vlog here) and post here when Mabli was a baby ah!

It's such a lovely beach and there is a great hotel/restaurant up the hill called The Seaside Boarding house which I think would be so nice to stay at!

There was a vegan market on the Saturday in Bridport (where Tom is from) which was so nice to see. It's great how so many more plant-based / vegan things are popping up everywhere and post cafes seem to stock Oatly Barrister now too.

Wilf picked up a couple of Beanos (one from 82 when Tom was born and the other from 85 which is my year of birth) and then was silent all afternoon and he devoured them. Another thing I am loving about this age is just how much Wilf loves reading. He would spend all day with the Beano (or Dairy of a Wippy Kid) and we wouldn't see him again until tea! I remember being the same especially with comic type books like TinTin or Asterix.

Anyway I just wanted to make sure I actually posted these on here before April ends (how fast is this year whizzing by!) it feels so nice to read back on old posts on our Easter trips here and I know its such a special place for the kids they had a blast.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter too
