Easter Sunday Fun

We were up very early on Easter Sunday as we had a date with the Easter Bunny! On rising the children were very excited to see what had been left for them and were delighted by their eggs and a couple of small toys. We are slowly working our way through the chocolate mountain!

We had been invited to 'Breakfast with the Easter Bunny' and arrived at the Hard Rock Cafe, Manchester in time to serve ourselves from the hot breakfast buffet. The food was good, especially the sausages and we all ate well. Following this there were lots of activities around for the children to take part in, including an egg hunt, crafts and face painting. Both Bud and Little Miss were delighted with their balloon models. We then had the chance to meet a rocker Easter Bunny and have our photo taken with him. Bud loved this although Little Miss wasn't too sure and I'm sure the Hard Rock Cafe staff will remember Ian's attempt to demolish their background for photos! We left after two hours with an Easter Egg each for the children after a fun filled time.

The Hard Rock Cafe breakfasts take place throughout the year, check with your local branch for what is coming up. Tickets were priced at £9:50 for adults and £7:50 for children which I think was very reasonable considering it included breakfast, drinks, an easter egg each for the children, all activities and a photo with the Easter Bunny.

It was only 11:30 when we left the Hard Rock Cafe so we decided to head over to Manchester Museum to meet Stan, their Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton! I'm a passionate supporter of my local museums but, I'm ashamed to say that this was our first visit here. We really enjoyed the museum and the children especially enjoyed the animal galleries, vivarium and dinosaur exhibits. Stan was a huge hit with Bud, have I mentioned how dinosaur obsessed he is? He loved inspecting the model and telling us exactly how much he knows. Did you know a T-Rex' tail is up to five metres long? I didn't but Bud does! We were pleased to see craft activities taking place here too and Bud enjoyed making a paper 'pelican' to take home. We will definitely be back at Manchester Museum again soon.

Following the museum fun we had two tired children so we decided to head round to see a few friends. After exchanging Easter Eggs with family and friends we went home for a huge roast dinner and a snuggle on the sofa, and a nibble of chocolate. It was the most perfect Easter Sunday.
