You may think that having 22 kids and an abundance of grandchildren might stop you from getting to enjoy the luxuries in life, like meals out, holidays and weekend getaways. But you’d be wrong.
In fact, the famous Radford family known from the hit TV show 22 Kids and Counting have actually enjoyed plenty of trips over the last couple of years, from escapes to the Maldives to the hustle and bustle of New York City.
A particular favourite is Florida, albeit a destination that’s caused quite a few issues for certain family members over the last few weeks. In case you missed it, Millie Radford recently accused her parents, Noel and Sue of making money out of their grandkids, after they whisked some – not all – of them away for a holiday there.
Drama aside, let’s take a look inside some of the Radfords’ trips, and find out what carting a family of 22 overseas actually looks like…
Florida: April 2022
Back in April of last year, Sue and Noel treated 11 of their kids to a trip to Disney World in Florida.
Taking to Instagram to document the holiday, Sue and Noel uploaded a series of snaps showing the family having the best time, including a sweet shot of the girls wearing Minnie Mouse ears plus a massive firework display.
Other notable moments included a family photo of the clan smiling in the sunshine, and a pic of the younger kids all clutching Disney toys.
Florida/Disney: August 2022
Just four months after visiting Florida and Disney World, the Radfords made the nine hour flight back to the states in August, this time with a few more hiccups than their previous trip.
Posting an IG story at the time, Sue let fans know the family were stuck on a “broken plane”.
Four hours later, Sue updated their followers with a cute mother-daughter selfie to let them know they were on the plane. Once they’d landed, the mum of 22 shared another update letting everyone know they’d landed safely.
Whilst there, the family met Goofy and headed to the Halloween town.
Maldives (Sue & Noel): October 2022
For their 30th wedding anniversary, Sue and Noel jetted off for a rare child-free getaway to the Maldives to celebrate.
The trip looked idyllic, with the Radford parents looking relaxed and positively glowing as they enjoyed the incredible views, golden sands and crystal clear waters.
They even recreated the iconic Cast Away character – Wilson the volleyball and posted a snap of the cultural icon on their grid.
New York: December 2022
Just before Christmas last year, Sue treated three of her older daughters to a New York holiday.
The four Radford girls shared the majority of their trip on social media, including the incredible views from the Vanderbilt, the famous Times Square Christmas tree, plus plenty of selfies of them enjoying their time stateside.
“A few pics from the last few days in New York this place is incredible #newyork #mumanddaughtertime #christmas,” Sue captioned one of the carousels.
Disney Land Paris: December 2022
From Disney Orlando to Disney Land Paris, it’s clear that the Radfords love themselves a bit of Walt Disney.
The family enjoyed an impromptu trip to the European version last December to get them in the Christmas spirit, and took the youngest of their brood.
Sue revealed the sweet reason they booked the last minute getaway on a YouTube vlog, explaining: "The kids aren't getting very much at all" on Christmas day. We decided to book this, because the kids are not getting very much at all present-wise this year.”
Florida: April 2023
It’s no secret that a portion of the Radford clan are back in Florida again with their grandkids, after it made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Following the accusation from their daughter Millie, the Radfords responded and said they don’t want to be involved in the “drama".
By the looks of things on the Radford social media though, the members of the family there seem to be having a great time.
