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

June and July are busy months for us for a number of reasons. One of the largest is that we are travelling a lot in the UK. I am continually grateful for the opportunities that blogging has brought us as a family. Last week I was pretty much in London everyday for work and next week is going to be very similar. So I was very grateful for our review trip to Norfolk at the weekend. Monkey has an inset day on Friday which meant we could travel up Thursday evening. Plus on Saturday I turned forty…crumbs.

This weeks pictures were taken on days out while we were away. On the Friday we went to Bewilderwood for a review trip. I will be writing more about it soon. But the boys had a great time and I found being amongst the trees very relaxing. Throughout there are multi coloured houses where the creatures of the woods live. I managed to catch this one of Monkey and his ice cream. I am finding it increasingly difficult to get natural shots of him again. I am hoping it’s just a phase.

Kippers photo was taken on Cromer beach when we went crabbing. After spending most of the day on the pier we headed onto the beach. My intention was to make it to the beach huts for photos. But a certain three year old was fascinated by the large grey stones on the beach. He liked picking them up and throwing them around. The bigger the better

We have another birthday this week with Monkey turning seven, his party is next weekend and then on the Sunday Kipper and I get on a flight. A ten hour flight. And although I am looking forward to being at the destination. I am not sure I am prepared for keeping a toddler amused for 10 hours!

    wow you are a busy lady at the moment! my girls used to have a thing about throwing pebbles about esp the big ones lol! they would spend ages piling them up too. I hope Monkeys party goes well and good luck for the flight!

  4. I think your pictures are really good . I have this with my 5 year old grandson. I think they go through phases. Sometimes they’ll pose and others they don’t want to because they’re too busy . My grandson is going through a phase where he wants to pull faces lol. Hope you have another fab holiday

    The Ice cream looks nice and never been that beach before but it looks good in the picture.

  6. That flake is very precariously positioned, once lost my flake as a kid and cried for days ;_;

  7. I just love inset days! Your weekend looked wonderful – and I love how colourful these photos are. I hope you had a lovely birthday x

  8. Oh you were in our neck of the woods! I love Bewilderwood; I can’t wait for the girls to be old enough to go. I think they’re still a little bit young to really make the most of it. Glad you had a lovely time here! #LivingArrows
