Bournemouth Air Show--multiple photos, More @tinybull_pixels

Wow what an amazing weekend! If you haven't been to the #bournemouthairshow you really must! Firstly it's free! It's very well organised and theres so much to see and do! The show started at 10am and finished at 5pm with a short break before the night show started. Mini Springbok and Mini Rose Loved it... We stayed @travelodgeuk Bournemouth which meant we had free parking and we could walk to the beach popping back for food/drink and the important toilet break.

We will definitely be returning next year, the show ran from the Thursday - Sunday we stayed for 1 night Friday being a quieter day... I'd recommended going on a Thursday or Friday as the weekend is very busy!

#autism MINI Springbok coped amazingly well, ear defenders are a must if your sensitive to noise... And it is very busy but everyone working were amazing and understanding so there's no need to worry - I knew getting Mini Springbok out of the helicopter (see Photo) was going to be a challenge, the lovely lady cleared the line back so he had the space needed to cope with the change 🙈. 📸- @tinybull_pixels

🌊 Swimsafe 2018 🌊

Swimsafe isn't about how good you are at swimming or learning to swim its about teaching our children on how to stay safe in the sea or open water if they were to get into difficulties. This is our 2nd year allowing Mini Rose to take part and she came away with so much confidence and excitement to tell us what we need to do if we were struggling in the sea.

The staff are amazing and fun, Mini Springbok got upset he couldn't join in so he was encourage to play along with the land games and hold a noodle float while they headed into the water.. He even got a t-shirt! That made his day. #kindnessisfree and we were definitely shown alot of this!

This is a #free event all over the uk for children 7-14 for me it's a no brainer! Why wouldn't you do it.

⛺ Camping Family 🏕️ Camping isn't for everyone but for us it works. When my husband suggested going 6 years ago I said definitely not! I imagined camping life being cold, wet, dirty and not a 'holiday'. I became a princess and demanded a luxury camping holiday if we did it.

Before we brought anything we researched ALOT we knew our tent needed to be good, we decided on a @outwelltents Sun collection tent so it stays cool in hot weather and warm in the colder weather its also put together with big sturdy poles so when it's windy it hardly moves! I hear so many people complain of their tents becoming like a green house when the sun's out.... Research is key!

Everything else we've brought as we've gone along... Beds again are something you need to try to find what works for you, we have an #outwell self inflatable mattress but our children have beds.

We holiday at an affordable price usually in France with our own things which is important for a child with #autism, taking everything at our own pace, eating breakfast when we want and having our own space to chill... We explore new places and still have the luxury of a beach and pool holiday.

If your thinking of camping I'd say try it..... You might just like it 🏕️🌍❤️ #camping #campinglife #familycamping #campingwithsutism #newquay #lovenewquay #touringlife #familyholiday #autismawareness #freedom #cornwall #france

Happiness after a day at the beach ❤️ building sandcastles, splashing in the sea, flying a kite and enjoying the most magical and free entertainment you can give a child.

Mini Springbok is definitely at his most comfortable when outside with space and he's free to explore nature. #autism
Note the mum knees I spend alot of time on the floor playing trains!

The reassuring hand from Mini Springbok as a lady he didn't know was taking a picture "what she doing" was said alot. #autismawareness

❤️Cornwall you beauty❤️ We headed to #Bedruthansteps for a picnic, the sunset and just an amazing and calming end to the day 🌍

Safe to say we all went to bed feeling very relaxed, reconnected and ready for a new day.

⛺ Family holiday to Cornwall ⛺

We are having an amazing time exploring all the different beaches, National trusts and just enjoying spending time together, having daddy around is a nice support also. This little one has coped so well With the change in routine, camping for us means he can still have all his own things (toys, bedding etc) and it helps to settle him. The first night was challenging but now it's " Jacques tent" and he loves it. He's definitely found one love in Cornwall "Caaaake" as he says. #cornwall #cornwallholiday #family #campinglife #camping #kynancecove #nationaltrust #creamtea #lifewithautism #autism #autisumawareness #routine
