A Lovely Week At Center Parcs…

Last week we went on a little week long break to Center Parcs with our good friends Lucy and her family.  After having a lovely long weekend trip last year we decided to add an extra night this year.  I was really looking forward to it, but was prepared for it to be a little hectic, with four young children in a pretty small villa.

It turns out it was the perfect week.  The children were all so well behaved, thoroughly enjoying each others company and making us smile with just how cute they were with one another.  Yes it was hectic, but we also got some relaxing time in the evenings when they all went to bed.  Lucy and I managed a spa evening which was just bliss, while our husbands cemented their bromance by two nights out.

We all loved swimming, last year Mads was a bit unsure in the water but this year with swimming lessons and lots of trips to the pool this Summer, she was a changed girl, jumping in and splashing about without us holding her.  LL is also a little fish, loving all the slides and generally being more of a daredevil than her big sister.  I loved watching them in the amazing Center Parcs pools.

It’s so lovely to be able to find a family to go on holiday with who have similar aged children, whenever we go away with Lucy and her family it just seems to work so well and we did genuinely have a great time- I felt so sad to come home on Friday with so much washing and cleaning to do.  It almost feels like this little break signals the end of our Summer.

Head over to Lucy’s blog too as she has posted a video of our adventures too.  We were going to do a joint one but us and technology don’t mix clearly!

Here is a snippet into our week through photos and a video…

I love this photo capturing my girlies cuddling- they really are that affectionate with each other, although they do fight nowadays too!

It is compulsory when you are little to share a bath with your friends.

It is also compulsory for your Mummy to take photos of you to make you laugh when you are older.

These two were absolutely adorable together and we often found them cuddling up on the sofa.

Her hair is so long and unruly, and she absolutely hates having it brushed but I couldn’t bear to cut it.

Whereas this little one is getting exactly the same curls as her sister.  I do love my little curly mop heads.

Too much cuteness.

These two are looking so alike nowadays, and their bond is growing stronger every day.  Although she’s still a Mummy’s girl.
