Well, my first blog party has been a ton of fun! I blogged about my adventures at Butlins, gave away great prizes, and even shared recipes. But although the party is winding down, you still have a chance to win – check out these British Invasion giveaways that are still running:

On Friday morning, it was time to say goodbye to Butlins. We headed to the Yacht Club for one last meal before catching our train.
After breakfast, we headed back to our room to grab our bags, and made our way out. Guest services called a taxi for us, and we waited at the front gate for them to arrive. This was the first time it had rained during the entire stay, and as we huddled in the rain, two Red Coats ran over and held an umbrella over us! They were very nice, and chatted with us as we waited for the cab. “Do a lot of Americans know about Butlins?” One of them asked. No, but maybe now they will!
Our cab arrived, and we waved goodbye to the friendly Red Coats and bid farewell to Butlins.
Jai and I both had a fantastic time at Butlins, and we’re really happy that we had a chance to go. It’s a very fun place, and I think most families would have a ball there. There are so many fun activities, rides, games and shows for kids, and there’s no waiting around in huge lines for anything. I would love to go again someday!

Even the trashcans at Butlins are cute!
