Making memories to last forever,
Holding the children tight,
Watching their excitement,
As they take their first plane flight.
We’d like to cast aside the woolies,
And say farewell to the snood;
Bask on a sunlit balcony,
Whilst consuming delicious food.
H-Bear splashing in the pool
With Mummy – treading water.
Daddy throwing Busby in,
And laughing with his daughter.
Walking, wandering and exploring,
New adventures: “Land ahoy!”
Building castles, collecting shells,
Sea paddling with joy.
Hopping to other islands,
Exploring local cuisines,
Introducing the children,
To something more exciting than baked beans.
Airing the summer wardrobe;
Those shorts I’ve never worn,
That cute romper suit for the baby,
I bought before he was born.
Even though we like the sun,
And the warmth upon our faces,
We really love adventures,
And exploring brand new places.
Their faces, full of wonder,
When they see mountains white with snow.
Angels, sledging, snow ball fights,
Our cheeks pink and all a-glow.
Don the salopettes and woollies;
We’d also love to ski.
Our hearts in our mouths whilst
Watching our adrenalin-junkie Busby!
Mummy and Daddy would enjoy
The après-ski, of course!
Fondue, mulled wine, more food for us…
Time as a couple, just us two,
Is high on the priority list.
Perhaps a dinner (or two) alone?
Hand-holding, we have missed.
I’d love some R&R time,
A few hours solely for me.
A massage or a good book, perhaps?
Or just a hot cup of tea?!
No matter where you take them,
Holidays are all about family.
So Mark Warner can you help
Our family’s dream come true?
We hope you like our poem,
As we’d love to work with you!
