Me and Mine A Family Project…May 2017

Me and Mine A Family Project…May 2017

I was actually really organised with my photos this month. A few weeks ago we had a really sunny Sunday and after I took Alice to a party we jumped in the car and headed to some bluebell woods that I had been told about.

Alice was really excited as she not only loves exploring, but she seems to have a real interest in flowers. And couldn’t wait to see the bluebells.

I love that our girls find a walk in the woods exciting. Whilst we love to go on days out and take them to farms, theme parks etc we also love to take them on more simple days out, to appreciate where we live and make their own entertainment.

We’ve got into a bit of a routine of having a nice relaxed start to Sundays, with the girls playing happily with their toys. Whilst Andy and I get on with some jobs and a bit of cleaning. Then after lunch we either jump straight in the car and Holly has her nap on the way, or she naps at home and then we go.

We found the bluebell woods easily and they really were like a blue carpet. There were clear paths through them and the girls were very good at making sure they stuck to them.

As we know taking photos with children can be hit and miss. Thankfully the girls were full of beans and wanted to have photos with the bluebells. They also wanted to take some photos and Holly took one of my favourite photos of Alice and I.

We then found a den and the girls loved playing in it. Holly loves to collect sticks and was going round finding more to add to it. Andy then spotted a log in amongst the bluebells and we headed there for a couple more photos.

Here are me and mine for May…

This one is out of focus, but I still love it…

    Beautiful photos, sadly all of the bluebell woods by us have all but disappeared. Ours loves taking photos too but i’d rather not be in them if possible 😉 #meandmineproject

    These are so beautiful, gorgeous light, and you all look so happy! Holly did a great job getting that one of you and Alice – it’s so lovely. Sounds like your bluebell trip was far more successful than ours – Max was definitely not in the mood! Maybe next year 🙂 #meandmineproject

    What beautiful photos! I think I must be the only person that hasn’t gone to a bluebell wood too. I don’t think there are any left now either! Booo… next year maybe!

    Ahhh gorgeous snaps amongst the bluebells I love these so fun. We just found a field near us finally. But it’s quite a dark forest they are so beautiful though aren’t they? Sounds like you have had a good month. #meandmineproject

    I love that little den – we have a few near us and the kids love it too! Stunning pictures Laura!

  12. Beautiful photos of you all in amongst the bluebells. Alice’s party dress is so pretty. I love the photo of you all on the log and the one of Alice and Holly in the den. What a beautiful place for a walk 🙂 #meandmineproject

    Your girls are so precious! Those woods look so beautiful, I don’t think there is anywhere like that near me. I’ll have to do some research.
