The Gardner Family

We are the Gardner family from Milton Keynes.
There are four of us, not including the guinea pigs.
Some of our major events, milestones and anniversaries are recorded here, along with some more run-of-the-mill but still important activities.

The Algarve

Two weeks of sea, sunshine and general relaxation on the south coast of Portugal.
