Living Arrows // 25/52


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
Kahlil Gibran

Every week I'll be sharing a capture of my littles - either individually or together. To capture how they grow and change week by week.

The weather recently has been absolutely gorgeous, although for me and the littles, it's actually a little bit too hot. To escape the middle of the day heat we've been going out as early as possible. On Tuesday, as soon as preschool drop off was done, Parker and I headed to one of our favourite parks.

It was honestly one of the loveliest days we've had together in a long time! We played in the park, made sandcastles in the sandpit, and spotted all the trains (Parker's favourite thing to do at the moment!). He was so good the whole day, and it's making me realise just how grown up he's getting now.

Saturday morning was a proper mummy and daughter date, which I think we both really needed! After her ballet lesson we went to the cinema to watch Beauty and The Beast. Indie was probably most excited about the popcorn and treats (she's way too much like me!), but we still had lots of fun.

We've now got to the 'fake crazy smile' faze, as you can tell by the picture below. I'm hoping it doesn't last long, although it is pretty funny!

  1. Aww how lovely to have some quality one on one time with them both. Love her little smile! Eilidh x

  2. fab to have some 1 on 1 time!!!

  3. Ah look at little Indie, what a cutie. Lovely to have some time together. Alice and I love the treats the best too x #LivingArrows

  4. We have had all the fake crazy smiles - they are lasting longer than I would like them to! It sounds like you had just the best day with Parker :) x

  5. Awww! Lovely photos. Both my kids are at the fake smile phase too. Good job they barely notice me snapping them :) #livingarrows

  6. Haha, that is a brilliant 'camera smile' from Indie! My son has this really awkward face that he pulls for the camera, I have to do something to make him laugh to get a good photo of him at the moment! x #LivingArrows

  7. Lovely pictures of them both as usual - Indie's fake smile is so cute (but I know how annoying it gets when you're just 'do a proper face please!'). I've not taken Toby to the cinema for ages - you've reminded me we should go again soon. #LivingArrows
