I'm Matt, 48, and my wife is Therese, 47. Mollie,17, Eloise,15, Henry,14, Charlotte, 12 and the twins Archie and Matilda, 9 - and we think we should do one last big family holiday together as Mollie has just started University and next year she may be too cool to do the family holiday thing. We have a Golden Retriever - FRED. Living on the coast of course the kids love Snow Skiing! You can't win. We loved Utah 3 years ago and particularly Sundance. We loved Los Angeles and everywhere else we've been. We surprisingly get on well when we are on holidays. They complain that I sometimes overload them with activities but that is not true. As much as they love getting away, they love getting back to their home. They have lucky lives - and who would deny them that.
