Barbados – Our First Family Holiday

This post in LONG overdue – I think the hardest thing about putting this post together was the fact I had so many photos to choose from. If I could I would put up ALL of the photos but there are just way to many lol

Our story: November 2012 we took a well deserved trip to Barbados to spend some time enjoying the sunshine & such a beautiful country. We stayed in the well known area of Christ Church as my mum & dad have a house there.

It was Hayden’s very first holiday & our very first holiday as a family…  We had a blast. We didnt want it to end. Here are some of our photos.

I will make separate posts later with more specific things about the beautiful island& a video will also follow shortly too.

Hope you enjoy

  15. Hey these pictures are amazing I can not wait for the pictures and video of the island. The pictures of the flight strikes fear in to my heart. I have an irrational fear of flying but not the landing and taking off bit I love that part of flying just the feeling of being in the air. On our flight to Malta years ago i spent the entire 3 hours or so clenching Katy’s hand. Got close to landing then I was fine and dandy. lol

  16. Such gorgeous pictures of this well deserved and long overdue trip. Your little boy is precious and such a little trooper through all the new adventures this trip brought. Thank you for sharing such a joyous time. Welcome back to blogging. Hope your little guy is feeling better.

  17. What a beautiful place it looks gorgeous

    Hi Lotte! I just found you through the blog hop. I love these photos… they make me feel like I’m on vacay, lol. You have a beautiful family. I’ve never been to the Barbados but I hope to go someday soon. That water looks so refreshing. I love the pic of your little man with his sweet hand in the sand, I think that’s an awesome shot.

    Many Blessings!
