‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows, a place to link up your weekly photos of family life over at What the Red Head Said. You may remember that last week we were off to Cambridge for the weekend? Well we had a great time and I have already booked our next adventure for the end of Feb. There has to be some perks to going back to work right? So no surprising this weeks photos are from when we went to visit Cambridge Botanical Gardens:

Living Arrows Week 5

Monkey is obsessed with ice? He was super impressed to find this piece next to the water fountain in the gardens. Although he took a little persuasion to pose for the photo – naturally!! Needless to say about five seconds after this large piece of ice was thrown straight back into said water fountain to Monkey’s great amusement!

Kipper was less bothered. Just happy to be out of the buggy! He is definitely a carrier/sling kind of baby but at 23lbs+ he is almost out of our current one which only goes up to 26lbs. I think I will need something with an industrial frame to continue being able to carry him without it making my shoulders and back ache!

Living Arrows Week 5

To all my fellow #LivingArrows bloggers – I hope you have all had a lovely weekend too and I look forward to catching up with everyones photos.

P.S. Ive decided to keep this little bobble hat for his box its far too adorable to giveaway and has been on a number of day trips out with us this Winter.

  1. Love the ice shot. I’m not surprised he loves it – I’m a bit partial to crunching it myself. Love that photo of Kipper – the look of surprise is fab. #livingarrows

  2. Aww, I love his bobble hat – I’ve just bought the same one in grey for the new baby! Definitely a keeper 🙂 And the ice shot is just fab – such an impressive find and I love that you can’t see his expression through it! #livingarrows

  3. That piece of ice is amazing! Great photo, it looks like you had a great adventure. We have a few trips coming up and I can’t wait x

  4. Love that top photo! I wondered what it was when I first glanced at it! We have a ringsling that I still use with my daughter who is nearly 3, it’s fab for when we’re out and about and she alternates between wanting to walk and wanting to be carried! x #LivingArrows
