We have been very fortunate to be treated to a holiday with the whole family by my sister in law to Center Parcs – that is 9 adults and 9 children! It will be truly fantastic – if, (being the operative word here) we can get everything in the car and actually get there! It is proving to be a mammoth task.
How much stuff do little ones need? Seriously we are going 2 hours up the road and to a place with gorgeous mod cons – I am not attempting camping, or a safari or ice fishing! It really is ridiculous. The problem is that our lovely British weather means you have to plan for weather suited for a safari and ice fishing as it can be that changeable!
This is out boot!
In it we need to fit:
- a double buggy
- a single buggy
- 3 travel cots
- Baby bedding
- a case of baby clothes
- a case for our clothes
- towels and anything else i may suddenly think of.
Remember that our back seat usually looks like this!
This leaves us limited footwell space! I have a feeling that I may be one very squashed Mummy in the front seat!
Whatever happens we are all going to get there and have a whale of a time, even if I am buried under stuff! I am most excited by the swimming as the twins have never been in a pool as you have to have an adult per child for under 5′s!
Whilst I am away I have been very fortunate to have three other lovely bloggers volunteer to guest post for me whilst I am away. Due to me being on holiday we have stuck with that as a theme so
On Monday – the lovely Kylie from Not even a bag of Sugar gives you her top tips for travel through the eyes of her little boy. I must say I am very grateful to have read these before going away. Particularly useful if you are going anywhere by plane.
On Wednesday – Michelle from Mummy from the heart explain that going on holiday as a family with little ones is possible as she did it with 6 week old twins! Very impressive and inspiring.
Finally on Friday 0the lovely Fiona from CoombeMill gives you the recipe for the prefect picnic!
I think we have covered all the necessities for a great holiday! Enjoy all the lovely reads whilst I am away.
