Living Arrows 2/52

“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.

One of our family goals for 2017 is to get outdoors and explore more. I asked some fellow North West bloggers for some suggestions of places to visit. They went above and beyond so we now have a long list of ideas to work our way through. I’m hoping lots of my living arrows photo’s will be taken outdoors this year.

Here are my favourite photo’s of the children this week.


Jake has just enjoyed his first full week totally buggy free so he’s making the most of exploring his world in a new way. Leaving the buggy at home when we go out is so strange, but it’s lovely to watch him run and play along with Daisy.


We made the most of the bank holiday last Monday and went to the park. Despite is being freezing cold the sky was so blue and clear, it made me long for Spring. I love this photo, I don’t know what she’s looking at or thinking about but she looks absolutely beautiful.

    I can’t see the second image sadly but that first one is adorable. It shows a little explorer in the making!

      How strange that you can’t see the second one, I will try and find out why. Thanks for commenting. Looking forward to seeing yours this week x

    Athena and Troy love the park whatever the weather – the minus temperatures don’t seem to both them as long as they have their coats, hats and gloves on! Kids just love the park don’t they? We still haven’t got buggy free, with a long walk to school and a double for long days out in the car! x

    My one adores the park and great outdoors regardless of the weather and these photos are lovely. We visited Delamere Forest the other week which I’m not sure if it’s near you or not but it was gorgeous #LivingArrows
