Living Arrows – 14/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

This week’s photos were taken at Alton Towers at the weekend. We’ve been promising the children we would visit again since we went last April and finally got around to it. They had a blast and one of LP’s favourite things was this pipe decoration!

Little Man loved the Tree Fu Tom play area and could have stayed there all day. He is so independent now, loves just doing his own thing and brushes us off when we try and help him. He has no fear and will happily climb and slide on everything that is put in front of him.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

    I’m so pleased you’ve had a lovely break, a great start to your Easter Holidays. I really want to take the girls to Alton Towers this year for their birthday’s. It’s hard when they are so independent to let them get on with things. Little Man is growing up so much. x

    The pipes are gorgeous and little man is such a little adventurer 😊 Thank you for hosting x

    Thank you so much for featuring me Donna 🙂 I’m glad you had a lovely time in Alton Towers, I can’t wait for Dex to be old enough for us to take him.

    I love that colourful pipe! We are going to head here soon as we have merlin passes this year, we have been to the waterpark a few times but not to the theme park with the children x

    It looks like the kids had a fantastic time at Alton Towers, there’s so much for them to do there now. I used to go a lot in my teens and it was all big rides and not much for the younger kids.

    Those pipes are cool. I have to say I’d be drawn to them too.

    I am always right by Matthew’s side when he climbs stuff but he is probably doing fine without me. Just in case. #livingarrows

    Looks like LP and Little Man had a great time at Alton Towers. I can’t wait until Isla is old enough to go

  9. April 3, 2017 / 3:19 pm

    Donna! You go to loads of cool places! I haven’t been to Alton Towers for years and years but I love rides and I bet the kids would love it too. Love the colours of those pipes! X

    What a cute collection of photos. They are adorable and what a good week it’s been x

  11. April 3, 2017 / 9:39 pm

    I love the pipe photo, it’s so colourful! Sounds like a fab day out. Alton Towers is so far from us I don’t think we’ll be venturing there any time soon.
    Thanks for hosting

    So glad you had fun at Alton Towers. We’ve only been to the waterpark – not the actual theme park but hope we can make a trip this year. Thanks for hosting #livingarrows

    Looks like so much fun, I want to go with my girls when they are a little older!

  14. April 4, 2017 / 10:25 am

    Those pipes look amazing – definately one to visit when they’re older!

  15. April 4, 2017 / 10:15 pm

    Tree fu play area sounds awesome, can’t wait to go to Alton Towers when Lucas is older x

  16. April 5, 2017 / 1:55 pm

    I’ve not been to Alton Towers since I was a teenager but your photos over the weekend have really tempted me! The waterpark looks amazing, and it sounds like there’s so much to do for younger kids in the actual park too. Definitely on the list for when Max is a tiny bit older!

  17. April 6, 2017 / 4:24 pm

    He looks like he has no fear. Those pipes are so colourful!

  18. April 6, 2017 / 4:48 pm

    I’ve never been to Alton Towers before! I never really thought about it before…I didn’t know it was so child friendly.

  19. April 6, 2017 / 7:43 pm

    They’re a great set of pictures you are featuring this week. Of yours I really like the ones of LP at the coloured wheels. They look like fun x

  20. April 8, 2017 / 9:10 am

    Oh I love that first photo you’ve picked from last week!

    Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I look forward to when ours are big enough to have these types of days out, it’s what being a family is all about! Not that I’m in a hurry for this precious time to pass…

    Thanks for hosting x

  21. April 8, 2017 / 2:12 pm

    Alton Towers is so fab! Def in my list of things to do when Baba is older! It looks like your little ones had a lot of fun! #LivingArrows

  22. April 8, 2017 / 11:20 pm

    Ahhh, so glad you had a FAB break! Those pipe decorations are awesome. I have all this and more to look forward to when Eco is older please god. As always thanks for hosting #livingarrows x

  23. April 9, 2017 / 4:07 am

    Oh I haven’t been to Alton Towers for years! It looks so much fun – they look they had a blast! x

  24. April 9, 2017 / 2:01 pm

    I bet they had the best time in Alton Towers, I still haven’t visited yet and I’m much older haha. Hope you’re enjoying your holiday so far xx

  25. April 9, 2017 / 10:08 pm

    Fab photos – those pipes are so cool. We really want to take the boys to Alton Towers but we’re weighing up whether it’s worth waiting a bit until Gabe is able to enjoy it more.

  26. April 9, 2017 / 11:03 pm

    We have yet to visit Alton Towers but after splashing out on Merlin passes this year we intend to. It’s scary how independent they get so quickly sometimes I have to double take the stuff that comes out of Monkeys mouth! I wish there was a way of slowing it down just a little bit! #LivingArrows

  27. April 10, 2017 / 4:16 pm

    I love the pipes! Hope you had a fab time Alton Towers – we had our first date there many many moons ago! xx
