 We had an amazing time with all the things we managed to fit in.

And here is our video to show you some of the best bits!




All 5 of us enjoyed the weekend, everyone has their highlights.
My Daughters was the Pleasure Beach, particularly laughing at how scared her Dad was. That was just the ghost train!! (just kidding if you are reading dear hubby!!).

The boys both loved the water park loads of slides and waves, that was the breakfast calories worn off.
I enjoyed the Tower, there is always something magical just seeing the Tower. Whether it is the history, child hood memories or just the view. Awe inspiring.
My hard to please hubby loved not paying!!

Everyone as a family loved the Hotel, and also as a great night out we all loved the Viva Blackpool show. This show is a real traditional cabaret show with showgirls, singing, dancing and so much more. Star of the show is Blackpool favourite Leye D Johns. Who is the host and architect to the evening of fun and laughter. A true seaside great.

A bit cheeky in places for a family show, but never vulgar. This show was absolutely fantastic. If you go to Blackpool it is definitely worth seeing. I cannot praise it enough. If my Husband is impressed with something it must be good !!

It even helps with geography as there are some places in Devon I didn't know existed until now. ( You will find out if you see the show).

 About this review-

I won this 2 nights stay as part of a competition with the Tots100 and Visit Blackpool to be a Blackpool Ambassador. Everything above was included and all thoughts are my own honest opinion. We love Blackpool and have been going once or twice a year for over 20 years now. We received no payment for this post.

Visit Blackpool Competition...


Move over Neil Buchanan there is a new girl lady in town!!



If you read my blog you will have guessed we all love Blackpool ( if your visiting for the first time hit the Blackpool tags below, to see some of the fun times we have had!! ).

When I first met my husband we had our first holiday in Blackpool. We have been here every year since, spending honeymoons pregnancies and arguments!! with the locals...  The ever present backdrop of the Tower, Three piers, Rides and Mooky evokes a special place in all my families hearts..
  
Sometimes I think I surf the Internet without even reading?  As yesterday a page I had seen before  (and obviously not taken in) I noticed the Tots100 are holding a competition to become a Blackpool Ambassador It ends tomorrow!! How have I not seen this before ? Wake up Claire!! 

Quick thinking I put the gym on hold, to think of a way to make a Blackpool tower ( sorry kids, you were at school, we can make one at the weekend) So I share my love of shoes to come up with my love for Blackpool and here it is..



Not sure which picture is best? you can decide for me:)


This post was like a workout at the gym, lifting shoes down from my bedroom = (weight)
Running up and down stairs every time for a birds eye view = (treadmill run)

This week we managed to get a few days away to Blackpool before the school holidays finish .We spent a few days here when we got married and always try to visit around this time for our anniversary,this is one place we all love to visit every year.
This year it was our 16th wedding anniversary and celebrated we had a lovely family meal out, I had a curry,few glasses of wine and of course my favourite chocolate fudge cake for pudding...







So proud my daughter put her fear of animals behind her and tried the donkey ride out...


Can't come to blackpool without visiting the  Big disco ball...
