Butlins, Skegness–Sunday

Related Posts: Friday ~ Saturday ~ Monday ~ Tuesday ~ Wednesday ~ Thursday

We all made our way to the Skyline pavilion where KayCee & Ella had their faces painted. It cost £3.99 each and was worth the money. The girls looked lovely when they were done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It didn’t last very long however because we didn’t really think things through properly; after the face paints, we went straight to a candy floss machine. It cost £1 and you watched through the glass while the machine made the candy floss then opened up the glass to get your candy floss on a stick.
Ant, Aiden, KayCee & Ella all got one then we went outside to make our way to the arcade. It was windy, both girl’s had worn their hair down and they ended up with sticky sugar all over their faces, coats and in their hair.
Of course, I hadn’t put any wipes in my bag and the only thing I had was a dry hanky, which was about as useful as a chocolate fireguard!
After a trip to the toilets, both girls were left with only half their faces painted and it turned out to be a bit of a waste of money….we won’t be making that mistake again!
While Ant and Aiden went on some rides at the fair, KayCee and Ella spent an hour in the soft play area.
The thing I like most about Butlins is being able to say yes to most things the kids want to go on because so many things are included in the price.

 

Of course, they wanted to go on things that cost money and we refused on principal because we felt the price was too high or because they could go on the same thing for free later when they went to the fair. For example, Ella wanted to go on a mini carousel that cost £1 when the huge, traditional carousel was free on the fairground and they could go on as many times as they liked.

We went in the pavilion and had a Burger King for lunch. It was ok but it wasn’t a patch on McDonalds!
I had the most delicious caramel latte from Soho coffee and I think if we ever win the lottery, I’m buying one of those machines for my home so I can have one whenever I want!
Before going back to the apartment, the girls had their photos taken with Angelina Ballerina. They both said they enjoyed it and wanted it doing but neither of them smiled when the picture was being taken!
After lunch, the girls watched a puppet show about the 75th Butlins anniversary.

 

 

For dinner we had pizza from Papa Johns. It wasn’t too expensive and the pizza was ok but it won’t be our first choice for pizza again. The special garlic sauce looked and tasted like melted butter. In fact, Ella even said, ‘it’s butter’ when she first tasted it.
The sour cream dip was ok but the pizza sauce dip turned out to be ketchup. Now I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt and allowing for the fact that they might have sent the wrong pot, however, if not and what they sent was in fact, supposed to be pizza sauce dip, I would have to say that I would not be happy to receive ketchup when I ordered pizza sauce.

All in all, we had another nice day 🙂
