We are having a bit of a house party on Good Friday, we are going to do an Easter Egg hunt for the kids, some party games and a party tea, then food and drinks for the adults, it will be an all dayer and usually lasts until the early hours, so looking forward to that.
In my town its tradition to go to the fair over Easter, haven't a clue why but I've used to go every Easter when I was a kid, so we will take them there at some point in the holidays.
Apart from that we haven't got anything planned, H is at work during the week so it will just be me and the kids but I'm off both Friday's in the holidays so all of us will do something on those days. I think I'll have to arrange to have a few play dates.

We never normally do much as H is usually in work. This year however he's off. So i'm hoping that we will be able to get some work done in the garden so that it's ready for summer.

How do you do an Easter Egg hunt? I've never done one for the kids as silly as it sounds. Do you just hide eggs and let them look?
When you say fair do you mean funfair? I love the funfair!
I'd have just started my new job which is quite nice in that I'll have a couple of 4 day weeks to ease me into the longer hours. No doubt K will spend her days at Bluewater shopping or going to the cinema. We've booked to go Peppa Pig World the second week and then onto the Isle of Wight for a long weekend. So that will be really nice. Kids disco, swimming, horse riding, and catching up with family.

I am off the first week and working the 2nd.
Will go and see Nana Jean for a few days and I might see if I can get a night away with H and L. However, we are on hols the end of May, so maybe just a day out.

chids I would love to be able to do our back garden but can't afford it.
Belle I'll do clues, then let the bigger ones help the little ones find their eggs. Yes I mean the funfair this is it
I would love to be able to take J to Peppa Pig world but its too far away for us. The Isle of Wight will be fab.

Kellfi, visiting nanna Jean will be good x

Oh a pleasure beach like Southend, love it! I love the travelling funfairs too.

SW - my back garden has resembled a builders yard for the last 6 months. It's not going to be very special when it's done as it is H and his grandad doing it, but we're trying to get a raised patio area that is for the grown ups, and then some more lawn laid. We have got lots of tarmac and so we're trying to make it a bit more kiddy friendly.
Kellfi - you confused me, i wondered why you would be visiting my Nana Jean

Easter is not celebrated here but just arranged to go away for the weekend locally with some friends which will be fun. Mad busy at work at the mo and in the coming weeks so already counting down.
Belle I have never done an egg hunt either.
SW - what kind of clues do you do?
Hopefully the weather will be good for you all!

Not sure yet, I'm hoping to fly back to the UK next Saturday for a few weeks (depends on Michael as he doesn't have a passport so off to the embassy tomorrow). Fingers crossed he gets approved to fly so I can spend it back with my family (minus the husband though)

No plans here. There's usually a funfair, so might take C.

No ideas as yet, probably do stuff with H's family over the Easter weekend. H will be on school holiday too so we'll have lots of family days out (make up for our crappy half-term holiday) and we'll be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary.

Going to my nana's hopefully. And maybe my mum's haven't seen her for a while.
27/02/2013 at 17:43
I'm still trying to get h to request the time off for some if it at least. They haven't sent him his holiday card so he is dragging his feet. Trips to Manchester to spend the day with my mum, lots of time in the park, maybe s trip to formby or somewhere for a day. Nothing major here just nice family time hopefully!

Its my daughter's birthday on Easter Sunday this year. We'll have one lot of family over on the Friday, the other lot on the Sunday.
When I do an Easter Egg hunt I just hide the chocolates. Might try doing clues this year though to make it a bit more of a challenge.
After that I will need a good rest!
Daughter's party for her friends will be a couple of weeks later. She's already got another party as well. Then we're going to arrange to meet up with friends.
Not sure what else we'll be doing.
