Did you know 5 is considered to be a big family?
We didn’t realise until this year how difficult it is to find holidays, days out, products to suit 5 people. Once your 3 child passes that baby stage and turns into a proper person it is even more difficult. Add into the mix, the fact your eldest is age 12 or over and you are doomed!
So why a Family & Lifestyle Blog?
I’ve been blogging over at Casa Costello for over 7 years now – Mainly about food but sometimes about family. I found that we had so much more to say that one blog could accommodate. Follow our adventures as we discover places and people who welcome families of 5. We like spending time with each other and don’t see why we should stop going out as a family just because we are growing up. We live in the North-West, UK – We do a LOT of travelling around the country with Millie’s Synchronised Swimming and we have our touring caravan in South France which we visit every summer.
So let’s introduce us …
