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

Its been a fairly relaxed weekend here in preparation of an overseas adventure next week. Saturday looked like the best day weatherise so we decided to head over to Wisely to see the Great Brick Safari. Monkey had already visited with his grandparents. So I was surprised when he said he wanted to go again. It was really busy but I still managed to snap a couple of pictures without too many people in the background.

I was especially impressed with this one which was taken in front of the elephant. Which is probably the most impressive model there. As you can see Kipper was pulling his photo face again. I have no idea where he learnt it from. I seem to remember Monkey also having a photo face at this age. Maybe its his way of showing willing. They still look very different to me! Although a friend sent an old baby photo of Monkey to me the other  evening and I could see some similarities. Maybe its more the age gap than physicality.

I very rarely get a photo of them both looking at the camera at the same time. Although I managed this one there were a lot of out takes. Any tips for getting kids to look at the camera at the same time gratefully appreciated. Especially as we have an exciting trip planned over half term. Which I will be spending the weekend getting ready for. I have a busy week work wise which means I will be trying to get it all organised in the evenings. I am not sure how I always manage to leave everything to the last minute.

Hope you all have a lovely week

    Ha ha yes kids do have a photo face at that age! Not just me noticed that with mine!

    Sounds like a good day out, I love the cheeky photo face, my Mollie is nearly 2, when I try taking photos of her she runs towards my phone shouting cheese xx

  3. I’ve read lots about this exhibition at Wisely. It’s such a shame we’re so far away, as I think Matthew and I would enjoy it as much as the children! I might see about booking a little break away, nearby x #LivingArrows

  4. Wow! the brick safari looks awesome. I have no clue how to get both kids looking the same way, my two never stay still long enough for a decent pick together, on the rare occasion they do one is pulling a silly face. I think it’s the holy grail of parenting getting a nice pic together. Have a wonderful time next week. #livingarrows

  5. They both look so cute in that photo! I usually bribe them with something they like so they will look at the picture at the same time and then I will give them whatever I promised to (it helps if you have snacks on you or other things they like) or I will ask them to point to me or a particular thing behind me (if there is any) and usually, their eyes will look in the camera’s direction.

    SIMPLY stunning pics – memories to last a lifetime of love

  7. That attraction looks fantastic – just so much fun – and I haven’t been to Wisley in years. It’s such a lovely day out x

  8. We saw some of these lego animals a while ago in Cardiff and they were so impressive! My only bit of advice for getting photos of both of them looking at the camera at the same time is just to move really quickly! Make a noise to get their attention and then snap away as fast as you can! x #LivingArrows
