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

Last week we were on our family holiday in Portugal, its the first time we have been abroad since Holly arrived and I am pleased to say we survived it! We had a wonderful week and it was a well needed break for us all. It was really hot and we couldn’t have timed it better with the weather. Sadly it didn’t follow us home and we arrived home to rain.
Both my girls love the water and were in the pool every day. Alice is really confident and loved spending time with daddy, while he would throw her in the air. I really wanted to capture it on camera and whilst holding a wriggly Holly who was desperate to get down, I pressed the button and prayed I caught her…This is the result.
We have a sand pit at home and last summer Holly spent a lot of time in it, plus we had a few trips to the beach. So, whilst on holiday I didn’t think twice about going to the beach we had on the resort. But, to our surprise she wasn’t keen and the legs would come up every time we tried to put her down. Luckily she did overcome it and spent many happy times filling her bucket with sand to tip over herself. Here she is taking those first tentative steps…
