Aoife Belle’s first summer holiday photo album
Hi lovely readers,
Thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve got some really cute photos of Aoife on her first summer holiday in Portugal. It was the first time we’ve ever had a proper family holiday because it’s so tricky with our work schedules to find a couple of spare weeks that coincide!
The place we stayed, the Martinhal Beach Resort and Hotel, was perfect for us as a young family. Everyone there had children â€“ from tiny tots to teenagers. When you think of family resorts you imagine lots of excitable, screaming children but it wasn’t like that at all – they made sure it was fun for the adults too! There’s a great creche there too if you need it.
There were three fine dining restaurants and because it’s right on the coast, the seafood was incredibly fresh. We splashed out on the most beautiful lobster on the first night â€“ lobster is one of my favourites and it always feels like such a treat â€“ so we kicked off our holiday in style!
We enjoyed lots of family meals and the hotel made sure kids were well looked after with a really yummy children’s and babies’ menu. There was also a play area right by the restaurant which was a really good idea.
Aoife’s Water Babies classes have really paid off. She’s got no fear at all when it comes to water and loves splashing about. She made lots of friends too with children her age and some older ones too. It was fun to see them all interacting and they really doted on her.
When Rochelle came over with Alaia there was such a contrast between her tiny sleeping baby daughter and my very active Aoife! They were both gorgeous though in their cute little swimming costumes in the sunshine.
But it’s back to work now. The Sats have got a few festivals coming up from now until autumn â€“ the V Festival, Fusion Festival and the SD2 Festival â€“ plus a few shows too.
Hope to see some of you there!
Enjoy your weekend.
