The Radfords, Britain's biggest family, have gone on a caravan holiday to Scotland, after plans to travel to Australia were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Sue and Noel, along with their 22 children, started their trip with a visit to The Kelpies, the famous 30-metre high horse head statues in Falkirk.
Mrs Radford said: "We're staying with our friends in their caravan, they have some caravans at a site in Edinburgh, so we're staying there until Monday - and then going to another caravan site with them for the rest of the week.
"We're just getting ready to leave for Scotland. It's been crazy, crazy busy trying to get everybody sorted and in the car."
Packing for the staycation has not been straightforward, with each of the children having a bin bag full of clothes, which is labeled with their name to keep confusion on arrival at a minimum.
The couple live with 19 of their children in Morecambe and the youngest, Heidie was born in April, while their eldest, Chris, is 30.
Like many families, the Radfords are now waiting to get the money back on their cancelled family holiday abroad, but the caravan trip to Scotland seems to be a success so far.
They shared pictures of the children playing happily together, cycling around the caravan site and eating ice cream to their Instagram account.
With the school summer holidays now officially underway in England and many caravan parks reopening, staycations are proving popular.
Caravan owners are advised to book in advance and be aware of new rules to help stop the potential spread of coronavirus during their stay.
Most sites that have managed to open are operating at a reduced capacity to ensure there is adequate space between pitches.
Cornwall, the Lake District and Scotland, where the Radfords are currently enjoying their staycation, are all proving to be popular for family holidays this year.
