Living Arrows | One Sandwich Short of a Picnic

‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows, are sent forth’ Kahlil Gibran

We had our first proper picnic of the year yesterday in the most glorious sunshine. There was football, flower picking, tree climbing, mud pie making and pond dipping and both the girls came home covered in mud. The stuff childhood is made of!  Ernie had his first ever go in the pushchair, he seemed to like it although Mummy didn’t because it’s forward facing so I couldn’t see his beautiful little face! I have finally switched my camera into manual mode and am trying to get to grips with the settings by trial and error. I’ve had a lot of disasters, but I think when I finally get it right the results are worth it (millions more pictures on my Instagram if you’re interested).

    Lovely photos of your gorgeous children again. Really like the one of Mabel coming out of that little tree trunk door. #livingarrows

    I love picnics. Great that you got to go out with the whole family. The pushchair suits Ernie, can’t beat carrying the though can you? Looks like you had heaps of for the memory bank!
