LASTLY, breaking up fights between the older boys. Yes fights and arguments still happen on holidays haha. There was so much exploring to do in gran canaria but it also felt very remote and almost run down in areas. We searched for quiet and remote beaches away from tourists which on one occasion didn’t work out so well… we did manage to find a brilliant beach which was mostly used by locals, it had showers and toilets aswell as parking. Win win. Sardina del norte is the beach i highly recommend if you have children. 
To get around we used our hire car which is something i also recommend if going away with children. We used our google maps on our phones and this worked out great. I will be doing a separate blog post about our first time flying with the kids as that was very challenging at times! Overall we had a brilliant time and created some great memories 🙂 

Also since i am keeping it totally real here the photo above of the boys together may look lovely but what happened about 30 minutes after this was taken was max having the biggest meltdown! kicking and screaming followed shortly by Charlie crying because he has something in his eye… kids aye. We all then walked back to the car (kids still crying) to cool off and get snacks. Once all had been fed the smiles came back again.
