Living Arrows 25/53 {2018}

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

by Kahlil Gibran


At the weekend we were celebrating my birthday with my family and we took a trip to Brownsea Island. It’s somewhere we’ve talked about going for a while and it was lovely to finally make it. The girls loved the boat trip over to the island, it was definitely a highlight.

We even got to see a red squirrel, which are really rare to see in the UK. We found the natural play area and I love this photo of Holly who was in like a wooden Turret peeking out.


Andy and Alice were on the balancing beams and Alice wanted to show daddy she could do it too. I love this one of them!
