Last week we spent seven days in Benalmadena Spain and we just had the best time making memories with our family. There were eleven of us altogether, myself, Pete and our three boys; my parents and then my brother, sister in law, niece and nephew. It was the first time that we’d all been away together, Jenson’s first proper holiday and the first time that my niece and nephew had been on an aeroplane so it was all very exiting! I will be doing a review post of the Holiday Village resort that we stayed at with pictures of the facilities but for now I wanted to share some of my favourite captured memories of us all around the hotel. I had initially planned to just do the one blog post on the holiday but I took hundreds of pictures altogether so I think splitting them all up over a few blog posts is best. Keep an eye out for our ‘out and about’ pictures from Peurto Marina and Parque de la Paloma which will come soon but for now here are some snaps from around the hotel.

We spent most of our days at the waterpark adjacent to the hotel as it had everything we needed from a splash pool shallow enough for Jenson to crawl in to flumes and deeper water for the older ones. Our days were so relaxed and chilled out despite having five children under 8 between us and I definitely think that the facilities at the hotel played a huge part in that!  DSC07737 DSC07740 DSC07742 DSC07744 DSC07757 DSC07766 DSC07769 DSC07779 DSC07786DSC07794 DSC07799 DSC07801DSC07817 DSC07818 DSC07820 DSC07832DSC07843 DSC07855 DSC07857 DSC07859 DSC07863 DSC07865 DSC07867 DSC07882 DSC07884 DSC07898 DSC07903 DSC07910DSC07940 DSC07942 DSC07943 DSC07944 DSC07952 DSC07956 DSC07960 DSC07962 DSC07964 DSC07967 DSC07987DSC07991 DSC07993 DSC08003 DSC08016 DSC08030 DSC08045 DSC08062 DSC08067 DSC08073 DSC08074 DSC08081 DSC08082 DSC08085 DSC08091 DSC08108 DSC08114 DSC08139 DSC08143 DSC08149 DSC08151 DSC08161 DSC08164 DSC08176 DSC08180 DSC08224 DSC08228 DSC08231 DSC08232 DSC08247 DSC08262 DSC08271 DSC08280 DSC08394
