Taking a break- thanks to @Butlins

So, the last couple of weeks have been chaos. From mum's 60th, my parents ruby wedding anniversary, and Squeaks' 4th birthday- and then throw in a massive deadline at work.
A break at Butlin's couldn't have been better timed.
We are here at the Bognor Regis resort, staying in one of the Neptune rooms at the Ocean Hotel.
It is wonderful.
Firstly, because we've found a hotel which accommodates five in one room.
Secondly, because we've discovered Butlin's and a winner with the children.
We can't help but speculate about how much more they'd enjoy it if they were a bit older.
And saying that with the knowledge we've put weary children to bed each night- straight to sleep!
So, what's been so good?
The under-5's 'fairground' has been the cause of the boys' greatest excitement- every day! They've got a little piece of independence and they love it!
The shows- so far we've seen Bob the Builder, Thomas and Friends, Angelina Ballerina, and the puppet show. All have had the children enraptured.
The 'fancy restaurants'- Squeaks' favourite expression! We have had dinner at the Kalediscope restaurant and Turner's. And of course one meal featured a cake, balloons and a rendition of 'happy birthday'! And we've managed a character breakfast with Cedric and Godfrey!
Our room. The children are in their element that we're all in the same room, and do not want to leave.
I love our room, I love our view!!
The swimming pool- three slides for the children. A slide for Squeaks and daddy to have races down.
It's no wonder the boys are refusing their afternoon naps and sleeping through.
And here are a couple of photos, before we get home and I can download a gazillion from my camera, because when children are this happy you want to capture every moment.
