Living Arrows 22/52 {2017}

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

by Kahlil Gibran

On Saturday we took a trip to the beach. The girls were so excited and couldn’t wait to get there. Holly spent the whole time building sandcastles and Alice was running into the sea and out again, as it was so cold. I don’t think her sunsuit had a drop of water on it!

There was a play area along the sea front and Alice couldn’t wait to climb to the top. It looks a lot higher than it was. Her smile says it all…

    Eek, Libby always sets off up to the top of things like that with my husband standing at the bottom shouting because he’s scared of heights and can’t stand her being up there! It sounds like a child’s perfect day out.

    They always savour the achievement of climbing things don’t they. Glad you got to the beach

    You can’t beat a trip to the beach, even if the weather isn’t the best! Love that photo of Alice at the top of the climbing frame – it definitely looks high up to me! #livingarrows

    We didn’t get a chance to get to the beach this weekend but we’re hoping to do so as soon as the weather warms up again! Looks like you all enjoyed it #LivingArrows

    Most beach photos have sunny skies so it’s lovely to see such moody backgrounds in yours – such a contrast! It’s no wonder that the sea was cold! x

    We’ve had a day at the beach this week and ours sounded very similar to yours. It certainly keeps them busy though! #LivingArrows

    Gorgeous photo – my little ones love the beach no matter what time of year, but have to say those climbing frames make me so edge – Izzie and Ollie climb right to the top to taunt me haha! #livingarrows xx

    These are so lovely. The beach is always a winner with the kids. Mine are never bored of it. Love the perspective of Alice’s photo. #livingarrows

    It looks like you had a lovely day, even if the weather wasn’t the best. We’ve got one of those witches hats at our local park but Toby’s been too scared to climb it so far – Alice has every right to be proud of herself!

    Monkey loves those climbing frames as well, in fact Ive just loaded up some pictures of him on one while on holiday!! Cant beat a day at the beach! Hope the weather allows more fun at the weekend xx #LivingArrows
