It’s that time of the month again where I share a few photos of us as a family, as a bit of a record of how we all grow and change. Most of this months shots were taken at the beautiful Abbotsbury Swannery on ur holiday to Dorset. Such a gorgeous place though t be honest as ever the shots didn’t quite turn out as I hoped in my head they would. Largely because of 2 children, as it is incredibly difficult to get them both to cooperate at the same time in the position you want them to be,
The first shot is probably the best of the day, a bit of an impromptu happy family selfie, not aiming for a particular backdrop and we are all actually smiling.
The next time I actually attempted to use my tripod with the hope of getting some swans in the background. Bless Monkey and his little pose though it looks rather like he needed a wee, and well LM was not in the mood to participate at all at this point. Still, you can see swans behind us haha.
Finally in front of a heck of a lot of swans, LM was smily, albeit with her sunnies on, looking very glam haha… but well as you can see, Monkey was having none of it! Grumpy Monkey eh! They did both enjoy the day though and I will share more about the swannery in a seperate post.
My final Me and Mine shot for the month is a lovely happy on th beach selfie. I had no selfie stick or tripod so just had Hubs’ long arms to utilise for this one, and it is by far my favourite of the bunch.
Though actuallly just one more, a little outtake of the shot prior to this one, where Monkey wouldn’t cooperate because “the water is too dirty for me” say what little man???
So that is our little family this month. The smiles hide the tantrums and troubles our little lady is giving us at the moment, but we have enjoyed our holiday so far regardless.
Oh they are gorgeous photos! It looks like a lovely holiday and the children both look so grown up!
Lovely photos, looks like you had a great holiday x #meandmine
Lovely photos, it’s so hard to get everyone looking at the same time isn’t it! Looks like a great place for a holiday x
Lovely photos and brave in front of all those swans. Love Monkeys facial expression that’s usually my two all the time when I get my camera out at the moment. They used to love it not so much anymore. Love the family selfie at the end sometimes long arm close ups are the greatest. We had a few months where that’s all we had.
Glad to hear you are having a lovely holiday. It is hard to get photos with everyone looking at the camera and smiling isn’t it? Love the first one and the one of you all on the beach 🙂
Oh I love those beach ones best too, you all look so happy and relaxed. But honestly they are all gorgeous… although I think you’re very brave, there is no way I’d be that close to that many swans; swans scare me!!! Hehehe. x
