A brilliant family day out

We’ve not ventured far over the past few weekends, so today we went to the seaside. We wanted a simple, family day without breaking the bank.

After breakfast, the car was loaded up; pram, packed lunch, bucket and spade. Cleethorpes is 75 miles away, a little over an hour in the car.

The kids had the best day. They played on the beach, made sandcastles, paddled in pools, walked for miles and laughed lots. We had drinks in a cafe, a picnic in a park, ice creams on the seafront and they went on rides and the 2p slots. We spent just over £20, including petrol.

Last week we took the girl to see Peppa Pig at the cinema. We shared some popcorn. It cost £33.

I know which we all enjoyed the most.
