Back from Butlins Skegness

Well my daughter seemed to have a 24hour bug and was fine to go away :) Yey!
We had booked a Monday to Friday break with me, my OH and our 2 kids (4months and a 3 year old) and booked a silver apartment, the first time using the apartments, last time we rented a caravan in the caravan park but we were with family last time.

Arriving and getting our key cards was quick and easy and arrived at about 3 and we could use all of the facillities were allowed in the apartment at 4. The apartment was clean and had just about everything we needed, oven, kettle etc...only thing I could complain about was the carpet in the living room looked like it could do with cleaning and looked abit grubby, the bedroom carpets looked new. Oh and it poured it down one night and there was a big puddle outside our door which was on the second floor and we had to step out of the way. We had 2 bedrooms 1 double bed and 2 single beds. We pushed the double bed to the wall so I could co-sleep with the youngest and pushed the 2 single beds together as they were a little high for my daughter who has just turned 3.

The next day we went for a meal at the the sun & moon, we went there 2 years ago and the food tasted great and looked fab for the price. This time we ordered 2 burgers and a kids meal for Freya, our meal came and one OHs burger was still pink in the middle and did not look like it was cooked properly :( his other burger was fine and mine looked fine too but I was really put off, staff were fine and re cooked his burger. We did not return, gutted it was a lovely place before. Freya's meal looked like it was from the freezer or something.

We tried the new Italian restaurant the next day, OH got some lamb meal and I got a pizza and Freya got meatball spaghetti, the food was awesome and we got served pretty fast, even my daughter loved it! We liked it a lot and decided to go on the last night but the service was completely different we did get seated pretty much straight away but we waited about 20-30 mins just to take our drink order (which never happened) our daughter was desperate for a drink as she has just been to a show before and was running and dancing about allot and was getting VERY restless and we walked out, no staff noticed, great!

Entertainment was great, Freya seemed to love it she made some "friends" although we didn't go to any of the "big" shows, I don't think Freya would have sat through one.
Freya loved the small rides but there was only 4 of them and one you had to pay for, so I guess she could have got easily bored. The big rides she was just under the height to go on with me or OH (she's a small 3year old) we did all go on the carousel though.

There is so much more I could write but I don't have the time right now but you probably get the jist of it :) we would go back but I think I want to try center parcs next time, not that we go on holiday often ha!
Sorry for any spelling mistakes etc...
