Me and mine (April 2016)

These months photos are coming straight from Graves Park this morning, one of K’s favourite destinations in the world it appears. We must go here AT LEAST once a week. This morning I realised that although we had done quite a bit as a family this month and had a few days out I’d not taken any photos of the four of us together (naughty naughty!) So off we went with my camera and my tripod and poised ourselves in front of the lambs to take a photo. I do feel really disappointed when I don’t get many photos of us all together. It’s annoying because I genuinely have my camera on me at all times, whether that be on my phone or my big camera and I’m always taking pictures of my family (I’m seriously snap happy) but because I’m behind the camera lense I’m never in them therefore we rarely get pictures all together. This is what I love so much about the me and mine project, it forces you to take the photos you would have otherwise missed.  So as per usual, next month I promise to take more photos as a family throughout the month! (I fear that is a goal I will be making each and every month)

The weather has been a funny one this month. Annoying as that is. Firstly we have the sun so hot that we all get sunburn then it quickly turns into rain and then snow. The joys of living in the UK I guess! It does make it really difficult though to make family plans as you never know what it’s going to be like. Like I mentioned, we have had a few weekends where we’ve done a fair bit together including a trip to a wildlife park earlier this month and a trip to the bowling alley. Plus the usual park/picnic and swimming trips. D is becoming more aware of his surroundings now which is lovely so I feel like he is really taking in what we are doing and enjoying it to a certain extent (as much as a 7 month old can do, anyway). I do love March, April and May as they are the months with the most bank holidays what with Easter and May day so it means extra family time and the hubby not being at work as much.

May is particularly quite in our household but the hubby’s birthday ensures that we will have a few family days. Let’s just hope the weather picks up for the next upcoming month!

This month we are loving

Daddy being off work more for the bank holidays

Picnics (when the weather holds out)

Visiting the animals at the park and at the zoo

Waking up to sunshine

Lighter nights

K using her scuttle bug or scooter

That’s it from us this month. If you want to see more of what we get up to as a family then head over to Instagram where you can find my daily pictures and musings.

    I have the same problem, I love taking photo’s of my family, but it is hard to get behind the camera with them. Particularly if I have to try and get my 4 year old to stay still so she will be in shot! I think even one a month is such a great record.
    The lamb makes it nice and seasonal too.
