Joining in with the lovely Donna’s Living Arrows Linky at What The Red Head Said.
“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran
Having a family of my own and trying to fit in seeing everyone else in between friends, life, work and house work can be a juggling act. Actually it is a juggling act and everyone seems to be so busy rushing around working, living their life.
I like being busy so I understand it myself I see how life can become busy its just the way it is. So it was lovely when mum invited us over for lunch on Sunday and then we took a lovely walk together. Sophia Archie and Arthur enjoyed it so much, they fed the ducks, ate ice cream and played at the park. It was actually Arthurs first time feeding the ducks. He did tip the bird food upside down. He is so cute its so lovely watching him explore the world around him.
It was a really lovely afternoon, and not something we have done together for a very long time. So it really did mean so much to me and I know the children absolutely loved having my sister there and my parents to walk with us so I really want to make more of a conscious effort to do it more often.
It was one of those really lovely family days, so simple a lovely walk and homemade dinner but so lovely and so nice to relax and take a slow walk I got to chat to both my mum and dad and it was nice to be with them.
We always have such a lovely time out in the fresh air together.
My dad took this picture of us at my mums, just me and my three boys. (Sophia didn’t fancy being in it and I will never force her she is eight now and I want to respect how she feels) I didn’t ever expect to be a mum of boys as I have two sisters and growing up our house was extremely female dominated. My dad bless him the only male.
I just love my boys so much and I still cannot get my head round it that one day they’ll be men like my husband. They are just so little right now and totally depend on me. I love how both always come to me for cuddles.
