Most family holidays culminate with stressed out parents frantically trying to shove a 100ml toothpaste into the world’s smallest plastic bag while their kids threaten to set off the X-ray machine.
So spare a thought for whoever had to deal with the Rooney family as they made their way from the UK to Barbados armed with a literal mountain of luggage.
Mum Coleen Rooney took Wayne and their four boys for a luxury break on the Caribbean island, along with her parents/willing babysitters Tony and Colette McLoughlin.
But rather than packing light, it seems the group of four adults and four kids took practically everything they owned.
Pictures show the enormous pile of posh Samsonite Cosmolite Spinner suitcases – each selling for £429 – stacked on top of each other in a big minivan while airport porters decide how to fit the four remaining ones.
The Rooneys, meanwhile, sailed blissfully through arrivals without a single piece of luggage between them.
Turns out each of the boys had their own mini version of their mum and dad’s suitcases – so all those other ones were just for the adults.
Coleen, 32, was already in holiday mode in an embroidered floaty white boho-style top and skin-tight jeans, while Wayne looked like he was trying to avoid even a single ray of sunshine in a dark hoodie.
It comes amid reports Coleen won’t be joining her husband in the States if he agrees to join the Washington football club DC United for a cool £300,000 a week.
With Kai and Klay in school, it’s thought the couple believe it will be too disruptive to up sticks and bring the whole family over to the US, as Victoria and David Beckham did when he signed a contract with LA Galaxy.
