This last week we have been away in Benalmadena, Spain with our good friends John, Cath, Steve and Kirsty. Oscar has enjoyed himself thoroughly. Playing in the pool everyday and making little friends to play with. It is definitely easier when you go away with small children with friends. When Greg, me and Oscar went to Greece for two weeks in May it was quite full on as Oscar had us running around the whole time. Where as when your with friends they play with him as well which gave us five minutes to sit down.
Oscar loves being on holiday, he must of spent four or five hours a day in the pool playing. He swims around and jumps in and out of the pool on his own wearing his Zoggs arm discs which personally I think of all the swimming aids we have used they are defiantly the best, they use them at his swimming lessons too. We also have a Zoggs inflatable noodle which is great as he likes swimming with one and every time we go away we buy one then can’t get it back in the suitcase so the inflatable ones are great.
We stayed in a lovely hotel, the Mac Puerto Marina which for a family and friends with a child was fab as it had two pools the normal one and children’s pool right next to each other and made it easy for Oscar to play happily. There were lots of lovely restaurants that we went to over our eight night stay which were all really child friendly and to be honest Oscar was so good eating with us then I took him for a stroll in his pushchair and he was out for the count.
Oscars godparents Leo and Bianca were also in Spain on holiday with their little girl so we had a couple of pool days and a dinner with them which Oscar loved as her adores little Olivia. We will be match making the two of them when they are older, haha.
