Son’s idea of the ideal family weekend away is the freedom to run free. Being still a toddler, he loves putting on a pair of wellies and running carefree on sand, grass or through a forest. It does not matter the location but rather the fact nobody is telling him “Be careful! Hold my hand!”. Besides enjoying the feeling of the wind blowing past his ears, there is also all the marvellous new curious items to discover and touch. Smooth rocks, pine cones, rocky sand, and soft flowers. He is happiest when he outside running free or digging in sand and dirt. Being away from home also means getting to taste new sweets at the seaside or homemade cakes at a cafe. Tasting different ice creams flavours everyday. After a fun day of exploring, he enjoys reading books with Daddy before cuddles on a soft bed with Mommy. Peacefully falling asleep and dreaming of a day of new experiences.
indoor pool without sharing Mother with Little Brother or Father. Perfect time to ask questions or share a story without being distracted by the world around her.
local produce and vegetables. As a vegetarian, he is always looking for ideas for meals at home. He enjoys making sand castles and then watching as son and daughter finds joy on jumping on his sand creations. After the children have fallen asleep quickly from a day filled with fresh air and fun, he enjoys reading a book and the quietness of the night.
waterproof coat and boots for a weekend of exploring. Storing her phone safely away in the family bag and just focusing on the family adventure. She is never far away from her camera and loves trying to capture the candid moments when her family is truly happy and relaxed. She loves exploring small shops with handmade items for the home or furniture that has been well-loved. Looking for the perfect cushion or decorative item to bring home to remind her of this family weekend away. One of the best treats of being away from home is the opportunity to sample new foods and have someone else cook. She craves fresh seafood that was caught off the coast that morning or enjoys heading into a local bakery for freshly made scones or bread. After a day of exploring, she enjoys cuddling up in a cosy jumper with a hot cup of tea while looking through the photos of cherished moments.
At the end of our family weekend away, we would be heading back home with numerous joyful stories to be share with Grandparents, and coat pockets filled with sea shells, rocks or small tokens discovered on our family adventure.
