It's Easter!!

Happy Easter!!We have had such a lovely few days.
Join us on our Easter hunt:

As i do every Easter, i sit down to watch 'Easter Parade'. My eldest enjoyed it to, especially the toyshop scene.
The postman delivered this beautiful brooch yesterday that i ordered from LittleGem. I love it Gemma, thank you.
I went to a spring fair with my Mum on Saturday and picked up these lovely pictures for £3!! I have put them on my dolls house next to the lovely angel i got from Cottontailsbaby.
We went into Leigh for an Easter hunt in the beautiful library gardens.

It was lovely, and we were lucky that it stayed dry, as it had poured down earlier in the day.
My hubby did really well and got me this lovely tray and card. And a lovely card from my boys. My eldest said he chose it because i love bunnies and daisies, sweet.
Now, to today. This morning we went to the Easter service at church and then drove up to Layer Marney Tower, which was absolutley delightful.
Spot my sons plane in the picture!

The littlest picking daisies.
They made Easter lovely for the little ones, There was a quiz, an easter hunt for the under 3's and an egg and spoon race for the over 3's.
And we got to feed the lambs.

Near closing time, we had the barn to ourselves. The boys played on the piano!! The lambs must like it!?!
And i had such a treat. The men let us take a lamb out of the pen to have a cuddle with. I was thrilled as they are my favourite animals. These ones were only 4 days old.
It is such a lovely place and the weather was lovely. I would probably only go there though if there was an event on.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter.

i absolutely love your version of an easter egg hunt. we played that sort of thing ages ago on a rainy day and the girls loved it. the prize at the end was a little pack of chocolates to share. everything looks so pretty well done.

What a lovely Easter you've all had and I love your photos, especially the Punch and Judy - so colourful and the last photo looking back through the doorway to the Tower. My grandparents used to live nr Halstead and we used to drive up through Kelvedon on the way to their house, so it brings happy memories too. Love Salx
