Living Arrows 14/52 {2019}

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

Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.


On Saturday we went to Dunham Massey, a local National Trust property, we bought a membership this year so have been trying to take full advantage of it. There’s a lovely Easter egg hunt on at the moment based on the Percy the Park Keeper book One Springy Day. We had to follow the trail around the gardens to find six parts of the story. The kids also had a trail book that they could stamp when we found the clues. At the end of the trail they each got a Cadbury chocolate Easter egg which made them very happy indeed.



As with most National Trust properties there are lots of big old trees just perfect for climbing. Although Daisy and Jake can’t climb too high up they still enjoyed the thrill of sitting on the trees branches and jumping off onto the ground below. There were lots of signs of Spring to look at and we even spotted a squirrel munching on some flowers, he must have fancied a change from acorns.

We took some lunch with us and enjoyed it in the car as the ground was still a little too wet for a picnic. I love weekends like this when we can get outside and explore.

    I love Percy the Park Keeper. We’ve watched many episodes online and have a book full of the stories. The NT properties are great places to visit but I do feel they are a tad expensive. #LivingArrows

      They can be expensive, we’ve just bought a membership and pay £10 monthly which makes it more affordable x

    It sounds like a lovely day out – we’re thinking of going to Dunham Massey on our way to Derbyshire tomorrow, it’s fab having a NT membership isn’t it? #LivingArrows

    We also did a Cadbury Egg Hunt this week, the boys loved receiving a full size chocolate egg at the end! #LivingArrows
