Our Mini Adventure!

I haven’t written much for the past few months, simply because me and Dave both have new full time jobs so I just don’t really have time to sit and write for ages! We work opposite hours and look after Ollie between us and my mom usually has Ollie at least one day per week and my sister has helped out during the school holidays too.

We decided we should have a break so we booked a last minute 3 night trip to Lanzarote.  About as last minute as it gets, we booked it about 3 days before we went.

We had to wake Ollie up mega early for a change, he was not impressed when we got up so early to take him… For toast! First stop, breakfast at the airport!

Seriously Mom? Half 4 for toast! At least when I get you up we watch Paw Patrol!

So it was no surprise that he was asleep as soon as the engine started on the plane!

Why do we need a photo of me being tired Momma?

Goodnight from me and Dog!

It was nice having an early flight because we arrived around 11am so we had a full day.  Our room was ready straight away so we dropped our stuff off and went to explore.

We were only 5 minutes walk from the beach and lots of shops and bars.  Ollie fell asleep on our little walk! Sorry for getting you up so early Ollie, please remember this in future when you want to go downstairs to find a duck at 3am.

We wanted a really lazy holiday so basically all we did for 3 days was go swimming, have naps and go for little walks to the beachfront.  We had a family nap from 4pm-7.30pm on the second day which you would never do at home!  We were back in bed by midnight!

I liked to stay lying down even when we left the room!

The best part of the holiday was seeing Ollie so happy with his Daddy!  He really had fun.  Dave is a lovely dad but because we’re always at work we don’t really get solid blocks of just playtime so it was nice to just sit and watch Ollie really laughing with his Daddy! So cute! Ollie loved the kids swimming pool.  It had lots of little kids waterslides and then we took him in the big pool and let him just swim back and forth to us and he was just chuckling the whole time, I wish we had a waterproof camera with us!

I was really sick on one of the nights so I didn’t play much the next day but watching Ollie and Dave playing was a nice little recovery! Ollie was sick before we left, we thought he was over it until he vommed on the plane, I caught most of it on my leg but I think I caught the bug cleaning it all up! Poor Dog was taken out too, he didn’t get to enjoy Lanzarote because he was just basking on the balcony drying off.  Po got to do the exploring!

Poor Dog!

Po was willing to step up and help Ollie find the cakes . (Thats a dessert menu and Ollie is doing makaton for cake!)

Despite the sick, we had a really chilled out few days and it felt like we’d had a week off.  It is a really nice place and I’d definitely go again! Ollie slept for 3 out of the 4 hours back on the plane so that made life easy.  He hates being strapped in on the plane but not bothered by take off at all, he hated the landing into Lanzarote, he was holding his little ears but into Birmingham he was fine! My ears hurt too Ollie!

I think he’ll forgive me for the ear discomfort though, he was so happy on his little holiday! 🙂

I’ve been InstaSpamming some photos and I’ll share some more, @MommaBossBlog if you want to come over and be nosy at more pictures.

Back to work now, I’ll try and write more updates!
