I want to be a #MarkWarnerMum

Our time away together as a family is precious, and those times will become fewer very soon as the children get older and fly the nest, & go off on their own adventures. There are things we have never done together that I want us to experience - like travel on a plane, enjoy a beach holiday abroad, swim in the sea, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, watching a sunset over the water.
Finding the perfect holiday - with something to offer everyone in our family - was never going to be easy, but Mark Warner appear to have it covered with kids clubs, childcare, water sports, fantastic pools, and other activities so we could be as busy or as laid-back as we want. The kids are all keen swimmers & getting out into the sea to learn some new skills would be an amazing experience, as well as trying new food and learning about a new culture.

Having activities to suit teenagers (A & J who are 16 & nearly 14), as well as tweens (L aged 11, who also has autism, & 9 year old H) and fun and exciting things for E (aged 4) would be the ultimate holiday experience for our family, especially with the opportunity to leave the children in the capable hands of childcare and enjoy some 'us' time - a rare occurrence these days.
But - more than anything else - it's the time together making memories that is important to us. They're young for such a short time, we want to make the most of it. The Mister is self-employed and works very hard to support us, and the kids are all so busy with school, clubs, and sports that there never seems to be enough hours in the day any more. Some time away in the sunshine would do us all the world of good, & help us reconnect as a family. We always enjoy our holidays in the UK, but we would love a new adventure.

The children made a video (with a little help from me) of us going on our perfect holiday. (I must state that none of us are pirates, farmers, doctors or motorcycle riders - they were just the Lego people we had to hand...). Enjoy!
