This year we were greedy,we had 2 summer breaks @butlinsminehead(our 6th this year🙊)and boy they didn’t disappoint!
Every year we go to Butlin’s (some of you may have heard 😂) and I can’t say it enough-Butlins is amazing!We simply will not go anywhere else. The staff-the redcoats-the entertainers they are all just so lovely and makes our holiday what it is every year-Special!
Last year we came out of a 3 week summer holiday with a whole lot more than just memories, we came away with new friends and a whole new family! Last year we had the pleasure of meeting Toby, today tobes is a massive part of our family, he is also Freddie & lexi’s godfather! He made a massive impression on us all last year and continues to be our best friend! We love you Morris!💙
Now back to this year. I must be honest though this years holiday contained mostly the circus- The amazing Gandeys circus! In our 2 holidays this summer we visited(you ready?) 11 times!! Yes you read it correctly😂not that it bothered me these guys are amazing!
Every year my children make an impression on everyone and come away with new friends and new bonds and believe me this year was no different! Let me introduce the guys and girls;-
SAID- what can we say?- A gentleman albeit a mafia looking gentlemen 😜 but a gentleman nevertheless (he’s a teddy bear really 💙) he is kind, caring and the boss! We love you said x
CHICO THE CLOWN- (don’t worry he’s not scary in the slightest 👌🏻 he is an amazing clown and very funny- hilarious in fact! My children loved every minute of fooling around with the crowd and getting wet!
CHICAS MORALES- The beautiful daughters of Chico, Gina & Jackie! What an act, from walking on giant balls(no pun intended😜) whilst hula hooping on fire to jackies amazing and graceful silks show with her partner Brandon! Just awesome 👏
THE JASTERS- what can I say? If you like the idea of throwing blades at your wife in front of 500 people or shooting arrows so close to her face that not only does she need to cross her fingers and hope for the best but she better pray to the lord that no one coughs or sneezes in the crowd, then this is definitely for you! They were fantastic!(definitely one for the husbands haha)
THE WONDERFUL RINGMASTER- The showman, the great phillius T Barnum. An awesome young man who has a flare for show business m! Sadly he was only a part for this summer but boy what a part he was, we d like to wish him all the luck in the world for his next steps in life! “We take our hat off to you sir!”
Now that only leaves me with these amazing guys- The gerlings/Colombians! OMG where do I start?! They are the best act we ve everrrrrrrr seen! We now refer to them as our friends because most of our holiday was spent with them lol
JAIR💙NAVAS💙DANIEL💙JORGE- amazing guys in their acts and also as people! They were so welcoming to my children (and myself ) my kids became seriously attached to every one of them! They taught my boys how to talk to ladies in spanish😉🙊 they ate lunch with us, played outside the circus tent with the children after shows. Lexi fell in love with JAIR💙 who now firmly holds the title of lexi s ‘bestest special in the world’ (she still loves you tobes) and she loves her”mama ceta rica” haha we will miss these guys the most because they took us into their hearts and we took them firmly into ours! We love you guys so much💙💙💙💙
Every year we seem to come away with’ not your usual’ memories of a family holiday but more than that we bring home friends, who we will stay in contact with, who we will miss dearly, who we ve come to love……………..🙏
Thank you to all of you who made our summer just perfect 👌🏻 some of you we ll see at Christmas, some of you it’s unknown for now but believe we will meet again💔😔🙏💙
All our love guys and girls,
The brooker/Hughes family
Adios amigos 😢
