me and mine {February family portrait}

February 28, 2013 at 8:58 pm 9 comments

There must be something wrong with me; I forgot to take my camera out on a couple of family outings this month. I certainly forgot to ask anyone to take a photo of us so this month’s ‘me and mine’ family portrait is an at-arms-reach shot. I rather like it and probably would have still chosen it even with more photos to select from.2-2-13 - Me and Mine February 4B

We went to the Dick Whittington Farm Park to celebrate my birthday at the start of the month.  They have some small farm animals and a rather intriguing reptile room.  I’m not a fan of scaley critters generally but these fine fellas were rather striking and seemed to be posing for the camera as they tried to get as close to us as possible. Euan spent the rest of the afternoon flicking his tongue in an out.2-2-13 - Farm park_Iguana 4B2-2-13 - Farm park_Iguana 2 4B2-2-13 - Farm park_Iguana 3 4B

When it became too cold to stay outside we warmed up indoors sharing E’s first bounce on a trampoline (listen out for his super cute ”uh oh” at the end)…before leaving with some freshly laid eggs.2-2-13 - Farm Park_eggs 4B

    I love the way that you are the only one looking at the camera and that the two boys are just grinning at each other. Such a cute shot! X

    the best thing about arms-reach shots is the closeness of everyone in the photo, it’s a lovely photo and looks like a really fun outing!

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
