We had planned to visit the Easter Egg Hunt at Kingston Lacy the week it started. But then the rain came and the rain stayed and each day we checked Facebook to see that the rain was causing problems with water logged car parks and so we decided to rain check our trip for a brighter day.
With the Easter holidays drawing to a close it was starting to look like we weren’t going to make the Easter Egg Hunt at all. Until we received a text from our friends over at West Country Mum asking if we wanted to meet them at Kingston Lacy. The sun was shining for the first time in what felt like forever and M and I decided it was shorts weather.
The Easter Egg Hunt at Kingston Lacy is in association with Cadbury and cost us £2.50 to take part. Included in the price was a little woodland story, activities to complete round the woodland trail and a small Cadbury egg for completing the hunt.
We’d taken part in the Easter Egg Hunt at Kingston Lacy last year, so were familiar with the route it took. It was nice to experience the trail with friends as M was able to skip ahead with TJ and read the signs along the way. One of my favourite things about being a parent is watching the changes in M’s abilities. He has a thirst for reading and loved reading and answering each activity question when an egg was discovered.
It was a gorgeous sunny afternoon which always brings out the beautiful side of Kingston Lacy. The boys were able to play in the park in between egg hunting before we headed to the finish to collect the boy’s eggs.
We can’t visit Kingston Lacy without a slice of cake from their cafe, honestly if you are ever visiting I highly recommend the Dorset Apple Cake.
The Easter Egg Hunt at Kingston Lacy has now become a tradition for us and it something we will look forward to each year.
