For 10 years now we’ve done a Last Supper during Holy Week. We eat simple foods on the floor and talk about the events during the Last Supper and Christ’s Atonement. It’s become one of our favorite Easter traditions! The simple program, menu, recipes and discussion cards are in April’s Fun Club kit to help you have your own special night. Sign up using the link in my profile 👆🏻 Or you can get just the Last Supper kit in the shop! (Also linked in profile) #eastertraditions#celebratesimpler#sffunclub

We’ve taken our kids to 62 countries. Yesterday all of us rated every country between 1 and 10, then I averaged the scores and ranked the countries 1 to 62. At some point I’ll do a blog post with our favorites, but for now I’ve turned it into a top-12 countdown for Instagram. Seems like a good way to pass the time? 🙂 And maybe you’ll get some travel ideas from our list for whenever travel starts again...
Without further ado, country number 12 is the Maldives. We’ve been twice, the first time visiting @sixsenseslaamu and @discoversoneva’s Soneva Fushi, and then we went back to Six Senses Laamu the following year. Our favorite things in the Maldives: overwater bungalows, bicycles (it’s a flat country after all), and the food - lots of curries and seafood. And each resort has had unlimited free ice cream. So fun for the kids to ride their bikes along a boardwalk to a private island, park and head to the ice cream parlor - multiple times a day!
The first eight photos are from Six Senses Laamu and the last two are from Soneva Fushi. My daughter wants to return in August if travel has resumed by then. We’ll probably go back to Six Senses, but if you have suggestions, please let me know! Friends have recommended @gili.lankanfushi, @joalimaldives and Soneva Jani. Our only requirements are overwater bungalows, hammocks and bicycles!

There’s no sight quite like the towering karst rock formations of Halong Bay in Vietnam. Legend has it, this unusual landscape was created by emerald-spitting dragons during a fierce battle against the country’s enemies.
Working from home and looking after these two has been.... different. A particular highlight for me was being on a video conference call with my manager while both the kids were being jerks - I’m holding Raffey while E is on the chair gazing at herself on the screen when all of a sudden Raffey projectile vomits all over E - E screams bursts into tears and immediately starts vomiting from the smell 😫😫😫 #fuckyoucorona What’s your working from home highlight? #elliotgrace#raffertyelaine

Ahh, take us back to these Monday Blues 💙. Welcome to the next installment of our #lockdownlap of Aus. Today we travel across the NSW/Vic border to the stunning ~
📌 Wilsons Promontory, VIC.
We camped up at the Tidal River Campground in the National Park which has a very friendly community of Wombats 😍, Swipe to see Video >>. It's such a treat to see these lovable fluff balls on legs come out for dinner as the sun sets... they are definitely not shy though, AND can cause big problems if you are camping in a tent 🙈⛺. Make sure you keep your food locked away in your car as Wolly the wombat WILL chomp his way through your tent to get to your food, even with you asleep inside 😴😴. With beautiful walking trails, white sand and pristine waters it's definitely a MUST SEE on a lap of Aus. It's also a famous compass point to check off 🧭✔as the 'southern most tip of Australia's mainland'. Rob packed his sleeping bag and a mozzie net and hiked overnight to represent our Blondie family which was a huge highlight for him 👊. Have you been here? It's definitely a little pocket of paradise to experience 🤩. ⏩ We hope you are enjoying this lockdown series to help you get inspired and plan for your next adventures when we can explore again 🌈👍, thanks for joining us 😘 ✌.

Follow along in our stories today for a closer look! *
I swear we are all going to come out of ISO fat, broke and in need of a holiday!
Tell me where you plan on going first? I'm thinking a drive up from Vic to the South NSW coast. Kangaroo island and The Fraser Coast are all on the list as well.

We can’t imagine how this crisis is going to effect the cruising industry going forward- only time will tell. This is a throw back to our time aboard @princesscruises We sailed from Hong Kong to Singapore.
Add Park Güell to your Barcelona bucket list. A gorgeous park in the heart of the capital city, you can't miss the impressive bench surrounding the entire park, bursting with colours thanks to the colourful cermanic shards.

If you’re a mum, with young children, it’s likely you need a break sometimes (if that’s not stating the obvious!)...to recalibrate, eat well, practice yoga, listen with open (undistracted) ears to thoughtful words and enjoy some well-deserved YOU time — even with your child/children in tow!
💫 I’ve been working on putting together some retreats to serve other mamas and allow them to ENJOY motherhood and holidays in unison. Right now, the first one to beautiful Norfolk will need to be postponed but feel free to sign up for info on future dates/retreats! We will come back together at some point and we will need our community of women and mamas more than ever! But for now...we are united in our home retreats... #balancedmamaretreats#yogaformums#yogaholiday#holidayswithkids#balancedmama#saschahodgesyoga#yogaretreat#mamaofboys#mamaofthree

Dreaming of the other side ✨ | But for now, at least we have gin!
Laughter 😁😂😆 It's probably the most contagious virus that exists, because it spreads like wildfire! Have you noticed that people start laughing with you before you even realize you're laughing yourself? 🤔
Think of someone you love laughing with 👫👨👩👧👦🤸♂️💑 Maybe it's your friend who said your new dress looked so nice that he'd love to have the same pattern on his sofa? 🤦♀️ Or maybe it's your grandma, known in the whole family for replying to your grandpa's first letter by correcting in red ink every single typo he'd made and sending it back just like that? 👵📝👴 Or perhaps your little nephew, who - when caught red-handed - tried to convince you that he wasn't fighting with his sister, he was just trying to show her love with his fists? 🤷♂️ Whoever they are, you love spending time with them, don't you? 💕 How about taking them for a boat trip? Which of these activities do you think they'll like the most: http://oceanswhisper.com/activities/ ?
The one thing actually keeping me sane at the moment. Without it I think I’d feel so claustrophobic.
Show us you’re nature!

Remember that saying: Stop the world, I want to get off?’ Well...here we are doing exactly that. This COVID-19 pandemic has knocked us all for a sixer. It’s a true testament to the human spirit that has pushed us all to the edge in more ways than one.
The only upside we can find in all this, is that of family connection. Being together, side by side through all this craziness. It has slowed us all down, given us the chance to regroup and reset and be thankful for everything we have.
For us we are doing our self isolation...Anglesea style, with lots of Vitamin D, fresh air, games, laughs and keeping active in our own backyard (while also keeping our distance). We hope you’re hanging in there xx
Current situation! Mana pernah playground taman kota sesepi ini, apalagi hari minggu.
Coba tanya anak-anak, kalau pandemik ini sudah berlalu, mereka mau pergi kemana pertama kali? Mengejutkan anak pertama saya jawabnya "sekolah" lho, kalau yang ke dua jawabannya playground.
Sekarang berdoa aja ya anak-anak, semoga situasi kembali normal segera, pokoknya sehat-sehat semua 😇🙏

But this happened today – they both pulled out their journals and said this: “Mum, we are gonna call these our Corona Journals instead of our Travel Journals and we are going to write about what happens at home over the next little while – I think we will laugh down the track and Ms Kelly (teacher) will LOVE IT” I can’t believe they actually WANT to journal and I think they have the BEST idea…we will want to remember this event!” Get your Australian Made Travel Journals and then download and PRINT your NEW cover – carefully take off the plastic dust jacket and slide your NEW cover in…

OK: so today would be the official 'first weekend’ of school holidays, in our part of the world. But it won't look quite the same as our usual Easter holidays: there won't be any camping, any play dates with friends or trips to the movies. There will be ALOT of family time, together, at home. So we thought we'd share some of our easy games and ideas for fun activities. Today, we share 5 games you can play with a pack of cards . . . and we're not talking solitaire or poker! Take a read, here: http://sunshinecollective.com.au/2020/03/27/card-games-whole-family/. Or head to the ‘news’ section of our website.

Vaycay blues got me hard today 😭 We should be packing for our first overseas holiday with Leo today I was really looking forward to Leo being this age and just chilling out by the pool!
Who else had to cancel their trip due to Caronavirus and where were you off too? -
Staycations 🧳 It looks as though we might be stuck at home for quite some time, so we plan on making things as fun as possible. Firstly their @trunkitravels will get used! They’ve been using them for playing, but when the weather improves why not camp out in the garden? @trunkitravels kindly sent us these awesome 2 in 1 saddlebags. As ‘beautifully’ modelled by my darlings, it can be worn as a normal shoulder bag, but also cleverly straps round the trunki to make a saddle. All the items are zipped in, so won’t fall out. The boys personal favourite is the little horn at the front! There’s lot more fun accessories available on their website, so go check them out!
Don’t forget Easter is approaching! 🐰 We understand it may still be up in the air on if we will be able to spend that time with family but social distancing or not everyone loves cupcakes! 🧁 Cupcake decorating is always a fun activity especially if you have kids so reserve your cupcake stand and plan your fun day!

Have you seen our guide to Zion National Park??⠀
[click the link in our bio if you missed it. 😉]⠀
If I had to describe Zion in a word, it’d be: awe-inspiring.⠀
Like seriously, this place just BLEW us away and I would 1000% recommend any nature-loving families include it on their bucket list for 2020!⠀
BEST WAY TO GET TO ZION? ∙ We found a cheap flight deal to St. George, then rented a car (it's about an hour's drive to the town of Springdale, just outside of Zion National Park).⠀
WHEN TO GO? ∙ I recommend going in the early spring or late fall to avoid the massive crowds!⠀
WHAT TO BRING? ∙ Good hiking shoes, layered clothing, and a lightweight backpack for lots of snacks and water!⠀
HOW MUCH TIME DO WE NEED? ∙ 2 days would be sufficient, though you can hit all the highlights in 1 (or could easily spend 3 days if you love hiking!) Consider adding an extra day for a trip to Bryce Canyon, about a 2 hour drive from Springdale.⠀
What's your favorite US National Park that families MUST visit!?⠀

If you would have asked me if even a few months ago that I would have started a midweek fire in the woods with my two toddlers, I would have probably laughed and let out a resolute “no.” This week I packed up firewood, matches, roasting sticks and an axe to meet my mom friends to roast hot dogs and explore outside with our kids. It seems easy when you say it, but the effort it takes to dress tiny people in snow gear is immense. It’s THE GLOVES. It’s so hard. Luckily we have new @sherpacanada mits coming in the mail and I cannot wait!
Well folks did you know today is International Day of Happiness 🤗.
