It's almost the Easter holidays! Well it is if your kids go to Milton Keynes schools. Mine come under Bedfordshire so they still have another week to go. However just for you I've got my skates on and put together my epic guide to Easter egg hunts and cheap activities if you're on a budget. It's more than just a list, it incudes our personal recommendations about what we know about each place so you are a bit better informed about whether to do it. There's other stuff going on to at the bigger more expensive places but quite frankly they can advertise themselves. If you see us out and about from Good Friday onwards do say hello - it's always lovely to meet people who find what I do useful. Link in bio or on homepage of miltonkeyneskids.com
The new trend of 2018 is the Family photo shoot ✈🌍🌴!
An anniversary, a birthday or just a holiday deserve a professional photo shoot 🙌
Your family deserves more than a selfie 💞 👪👫👬

Everly Bohème..we found out she was on the way two months after getting married. We had just bought a house and were planning on working our butts off to pay off debt and save for our dream property. We wanted to travel and spend a few years enjoying life as just the two of us. Our plans changed right off the bat.
I’m not sure if any of you have taken the enneagram test..if not, it’s super interesting and fun..Mars and I are both 7’s, which means we are both adventurous and often restless. The thought of having a baby right away was scary. Mars was only 21 at the time, which is crazy to think about. We didn’t know how to be parents..but now I wonder if anyone ever actually does, lol.
When I look at our life today, I know we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for her. Mars may disagree, but I know that having her pushed me to explore my own limits, to constantly search for balance and to genuinely desire to become the best version of me so that I can raise a strong, happy and independent girl.
Maybe the 7 in me, the part that was afraid of becoming boring and living a predictable suburban life played a part as well, but overall, the desire to chase a more colorful existence was the motivating factor in saying yes to the doors that led us here. Everly was always meant to be ours. There are no coincidences, and her little spirit has painted our carefully constructed life with bright splashes of color and made us see our experiences with a childlike wonder all over again.

All of these colors made me smile so much 💙❤️💚🧡💛 What made you smile this week? 🌿
Boy meets Gruffalo at Westonbirt Arboretum! Bless him, he really wasn’t sure about saying hello, but at least he had Grandpa to keep him safe. There’s a little trail where you can meet all the other characters from the Gruffalo stories at Westonbirt- perfect for kids.
Beach bums & best friends for life! 🌊🏝👨👧 My favorite part about these two is watching their relationship grow. As Maverick gets older their vibe grows even stronger, and that just makes me really happy! 😍
When your daughter shows you a part of Barcelona that you don’t think you’ve seen before... #proudmom moment. Last night she showed me her Barcelona. She took me to the area that her and her friends hang out, the stores they go in and the route they take to get to Bubble Tea at @zenzoobubbles It’s refreshing knowing that you live in a place where you can feel safe letting your teenager and her friends venture out on their own. But also having a daughter you trust doing so.
Muir Woods is absolute MAGIC! Honestly one of my favorite places on earth! Did you know that it's a National Monument?

❄️SLEDDING FUN❄️ at @tenayalodge 🛷Can you see my baby back there who lost his sledding disc? 😂 He thought it was more fun to go body sledding. The grown ups’ rears are still sore from this activity (not as young as we think we are 🙈) But it was tons of fun! My only regret about staying here is that we didn’t plan nearly enough time to just hang out and do all the lodge activities. Yosemite was amazing in the snow, but we needed an extra day here! And somehow this so-Cal, beach raised, sun loving mama ended up with 4 kids who adore the snow!! 🤷🏻♀️ Also...Happy first day of spring! 🌿🌳🌸
