Bank Holiday Weekend Fun

We have been quite busy over the bank holiday weekend and I thought I'd share with you where we've been.

On Saturday we went to the Brixham Pirate Festival. We've never been before so thought we'd go and see what it's all about.

The weather wasn't great in the morning which was a shame but it didn't stop the kiddies having fun.

There was lots for the little ones to do including a puppet show which was very popular. My son also got to fight a pirate which he loved!

The big bear that was wandering around was also a bit hit...

The kiddies were also given free balloon swords and flags which was nice. There was live music on and lots of stalls selling all sorts of bits, in all it was a fun day.

On Saturday we ventured slightly out of Devon to the Wookey Hole Caves. We have been there before in the past but not since we've had little ones.

There is lots to see there as well as the caves and they have also added quite a few new bits since last time we went.

The caves are always great fun but the kiddies weren't too sure about it all, I think they were a bit young perhaps. 

They did however enjoy the arcade with the rides...

and the really enjoyed the mirror maze, even though they found it a bit  confusing...

There is also a great indoor soft play area next to the cafe with tunnels linking one room to the other.
My only problem with the place was the cost of admission, we thought it was very expensive! It cost us £36 to get in and we didn't have to pay for my daughter as she is under 3 and we also had a 'child goes free voucher' for our son. So that price was only for the two of us! Bit too much for us.

After we had finished at the caves we went over to the Wookey Hole Inn for lunch.

This is definitely one of my favourite places to eat and stay. The food is great and the atmosphere is very chilled out. Lj certainly enjoyed her ice cream and also the bits her brother left of his!

On Monday (back in Devon) we went out on the boat and sailed around the Hoe in Plymouth and then ended up in Cawsand (Cornwall) and sat on the beach.

However on the way back home I think all of the excitement over the last couple of days finally took it's toll on Lj so she fell asleep... on the steps!

 So it was a very busy bank holiday weekend but also great fun. What did you get up to?
