Devon again

And we're back from another brilliant week in Devon. Just two months on from our first foray into chalet life, and we couldn't stay away. So much fun was had with our dear friends Abi and Byron, and their lovely kids Reuben, Betty and Edgar.

Here's a rundown of what the week entailed. We:


:: Got up close and saw elephants, giraffes and rhino in real life at Paignton Zoo


:: Couldn't get enough of the view from our chalet
:: Ate as though it was our last week on earth - fish and chips, ice cream, crisps and cake, but surprisingly no cream teas 
:: Drank a lot of wine, beer, pear cider, and for the boys their first taste of Fanta
:: Pottered about at Brixham harbour
:: Played the 2p slots on Paignton pier
:: Rode award-winning donkeys


:: Travelled by steam from Totnes to Buckfastleigh and back again on the South Devon Railway
:: Played on the beach
:: Drank amazing coffee from the Lime Coffee Company on Slapton Sands
:: Spent hours on the death slide, water slides, toboggans, soft play and fairground rides at Woodlands Leisure Park
:: Watched Madagascar, and danced like idiots to 'I Like to Move It' by Real to Reel
:: Perused the shops of Totnes, and regretted not buying a couple of antique etched dessert wine glasses
:: Bumped into an old family friend


:: Hunted mini Lindt bunnies
:: Made Easter bonnets fit for pearly kings and queens
:: Played musical statues, covering many genres including rock, folk and disco
:: Rang the changes by throwing in a few rounds of musical bumps
:: And had the best time with some of the funniest, funnest people we know

Already plotting our next holiday. We can't wait.
