The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 17

I really haven't taken many photos this week so it's a bit sparse after last week's overload. We were away at the in-laws over Easter which was really all about seeing relatives, although we did squeeze in a mini Easter egg hunt. Since then it's been one of those long short weeks trying to adjust back to the normal routine of school and work. Bigger Miss has gone off on another Brownie weekend so Little Miss is enjoying Mummy and Daddy to herself again and we are enjoying a slightly more peaceful house!

The most exciting event for me is that I am co-hosting a linky on this blog for the first time ever - the lovely 'Let's Have an Adventure', so if any of you have any posts for adventures, big or small, old or new we would love for you to link up here if you have a moment. xx

Chocolate always makes me smile - Easter Egg Hunt
Bigger Miss tried to pretend she was too cool for school with the mini Easter egg hunt but this photo proves she was secretly enjoying it! 

Dobble the excitement!
The weather wasn't that great on Easter Sunday so a lot of the day was spent playing games - here is the very noisy but lots of fun - Dobble! 

being ladylike - drinks in the garden
Easter Monday was a bit better weatherwise so after a trip to the park the Misses were being ladylike, taking their drinks in the garden! 

#Paddington Bear's Huffkins
Little Miss got Paddington Bear's cookery book for Christmas and we had yet to make anything from it so I promised we would make something one night after school. These are Mrs Bird's Huffkins. 

raindrops on Blueberry flowers
Some ubiquitous flowers. I can't go through a whole week without taking at least one or two pics of flowers and I got my old camera out again for some macros. I loved the raindrops on these Blueberry flowers. Lets hope for a bumper harvest later in the year. 
treasure hunting on Hayling Island beach
Today we took Little Miss to the seaside as Bigger Miss was away and we had a typical British seaside experience with a blustery walk along the beach, fish and chips, a trip to the playground, a train ride, a funfair and an ice-cream. What could be better!
