A day at St Fagans...

St Fagans is the Welsh National History Museum, and it's not far from where we live. It's great for a wander round, with lots of interesting old buildings to peep inside. You don't even have to pay to get in, so it's a bargain day out!
We heard they had an Easter egg hunt on today, so when the weather looked good, we decided it was worth a visit.
The sun came out and the kids had a great time wandering round, looking for the answers to their hunt clues.
We'd stopped at the supermarket on the way there to grab a picnic lunch, so we found a sunny bench to sit and eat.
Unfortunately, that was when we discovered that we'd somehow left Charlie's lunch behind at the shop. Doh.
There's a little old-fashioned working bakery at St Fagans, so I went to see if they had something for him to eat. Unfortunately they didn't do sandwiches, but he was very pleased to end up with a small, hot-from-the oven, crusty loaf, which he happily scoffed! He's not really a big sandwich fan anyway, so plain hot bread was right up his street!
There were a few old-fashioned rides and stalls there for the holiday weekend, which the kids enjoyed.
They finished the egg hunt and took their completed quiz sheets back, and were given an Easter craft kit and a chocolate egg each. (Rosie demolished hers in about two minutes flat, while Charlie's saving his for tomorrow, so no doubt she'll be angling for a bite of his in the morning!)
We explored a bit more, and then headed home - all the blossom is starting to come out now, and there's a bit of warmth in the air. I can't wait to be able to abandon our winter coats and gloves at last! (Although having said that, knowing Wales it'll be snowing and blowing a gale by tomorrow...)
