Quack Quack!!

I had been collecting the tokens from the Sun newspaper to claim my £9.50 holiday, although it cost much more than that, especailly as I then moved the week we were going due to cancellations and other stuff at school that the boys still wanted to do.  Anyway, Monday morning of Week 1 saw us all packed up and on our way up to Havens "Wild Duck" holiday park in Belton, near Gt Yarmouth.
Our caravan wasn't quite ready for us, so what with it being a gorgeous day, we killed the time by playing in the outdoor pool!

We had caravan number 22 in Swan Court which was very centrally located.  
After tea we headed over to the venue to find out what was going on...
 Alex still isn't above joining in with the fun - which I'm pleased about!
 Mum had spent the week prior pouring over the weather forecasts for each day, and Tuesday was supposed to be the best day, so we all went off to Gorleston beach - it was just lovely...
Albeit the sea was a tad cold for Nannie!
 Whilst the kids played, Mum and I got stuck into a good book!
Wednesday we had rain in the morning, but we had come prepared and a morning of craft ensued..

It brightend up in the afternoon and so we ventured off for a round of crazy golf!
The evening saw us back over at the venue and in the arcades, trying to win "tickets" to exchange for some crappy gift!

Thursday saw us over at Pettits Animal Park - which was a great little park that had everything the kids enjoyed!
 Cassandra LOVES flying pink elephants...
Nannie's fav was the little train..
 Nicholas loved the construction area with diggers, sand and tunnels
Alex enjoyed feeding the goats and sheep and chickens the most...
And I was so, so brave and actually held a bearded dragon - Alex captured the moment perfectly! 
 Our final night was spent watching the "talents" of those other guests in the venue!

I really enjoyed our time at Wild Duck and am even considering buying a caravan there!!!
