Enjoying A Butlins Winter Wonderland Break

It is Day Two of my first family trip to Butlins as a Mum Ambassador and I promised I would let you know how we are getting on. I will do a full review of the accommodation and holiday at a later date but right now we are having lots of fun so are a bit busy to do it.

I can say that so far it is a completely different type of break for us but we have thrown ourselves into the Butlins way of life and are thoroughly enjoying ourselves.

We have enjoyed an action packed day today starting off with meeting Father Christmas in the Enchanted Forest:

Unfortunately Rosie wasn't as excited as Poppy and cried when she met him. Poppy thought he was wonderful though because he gave them both a selection pack each:

The girls then had fun playing in the soft play area for a little while before we all headed off to Splash Waterworld.  That was great fun and  we all really enjoyed ourselves. It really is a wonderful place to relax, unwind and have fun. It could have done with being just a few degrees warmer though. Although it was not cold, it was not quite as warm as I was expecting, especially for babies.

Rosie loved the baby area with the little slide saying "again," "again", "again" whilst Poppy was very brave and went on a huge slide with Daddy and Grandma. We we all enjoyed the wave pool and whirl pool. 

When they weren't in the water their gorgeous new beach robes came in handy, keeping them cosy and warm:

There really is plenty to keep you entertained and we have enjoyed some of the many shows. Poppy's favourite bit has been meeting the character Angelina Ballerina.  This morning she took a dance class with her. She wouldn't let me take her wellies off so she looks a bit a bit funny trying to do ballet in them but here she is:

This evening Poppy was thrilled to meet Angeina properly and even  had her official photograph taken with her. She told her that she did ballet too and gave her a huge hug. I cant wait to see the photo which will be available tomorrow.

The girls enjoyed visiting Bob the Builders Workshop which was basically an area full of fairground rides for the younger ones. Among others were the tea cup ride, a train ride and an aeroplane ride:

There is still so much for us to do and we are looking forward to another fun filled day tomorrow. We have been taking lots of photos and video so have lots more to share with you.
