Living Arrows – 19/52 {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:

Toby Goes Bananas

Devon Mama

Little Fish

This week’s photo of LP is a review photo but I love it so much I just had to use it. She acted like her ice cream was real – as excited as she had been when handed ice creams on holiday. She was just so happy – and we’d just got in from her swimming lesson too so she was exhausted but happy.

On Saturday we enjoyed one of life’s simple pleasures – making daisy chains. Little Man was happy to pick daisies and watch but it was so nice to just be at the park for a while, sitting on the grass.

    LP really does look very excited doesn’t she? I agree it’s been so nice to sit on the grass and it is one of the things I love about these months. Hope you have a great week x

    Aww! Love making daisy chains 🙂 LP’s photo is lovely but you are right she does look a little tired. Thank you for hosting x

    LP looks very happy with her imaginary ice-cream, my two love playing with the box of ‘fake’ food we have especially the cakes. I love how children take pleasure in the small things like making daisy chains, just goes to show you don’t need tons of toys to keep them happy.

    N likes picking daisies but we’ve not made daisy chains. My finger nails are too short to do it!

    Ooh I think Indie would love those play ice creams too, what a fun toy! I loved making daisy chains (I still do!), it’s a lovely way to relax xx

    Beautiful photos, both of them!

    Daisy picking – brings back memories! Loved sitting out playing daisy chains. Attempted to show my 2 year old how to do it the other day and he just said, “No Mummy. Boring.”

    That’s me told, then!

    I can’t wait til Isla is old enough to make daisy chains with, at the moment she just eats the daisies!

    I love the pictures you’ve chosen to highlight and feature. LP certainly looks happy with her ice-cream and we’re big fans of daisies in our house. BattleKid always insists on picking them!

    It looks like a real icecream, I took a double take! Haha!

    Sometimes there is nothing better than just chilling out in a field or a park. Something we did on Sunday too! #LivingArrows

    I nearly forgot to link up! And for once my post was ready well on time LOL. This ice cream looks so yummy!

    Aww LP looks so happy. I love making daisy chains and was making some with A the other day. It is so much fun and it’s the simple things xx

  15. May 8, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    Thanks so much for featuring me! I love the photo of LP with the ice cream – looks so yummy, shame it’s not real, ha ha! xx

  16. May 10, 2017 / 9:56 am

    I had to do a double take at the ice cream photo as it looked real and LP was holding it so realistically! Thanks for hosting x

    Aww another little Rainbow Dash fan. Amy’s got one of these hoodies in blue and it has a mane and everything, she loves it 🙂 x

    I use to love making daisy chains when I was younger, we don’t seem to get them in our garden though 🙁 Wow that ice cream toy looks amazing, I’m pretty sure my two would be trying to eat it haha x

    The simplest of days out bring the biggest memories #livingarrows

  20. May 14, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    Lovely photos all round this week!

    Thanks so much for hosting x

    Thank you for featuring my picture lovely 🙂 I love how happy LP looks with her play ice cream. And Toby loves picking daisies at the moment too – so sweet.

  22. May 14, 2017 / 11:37 pm

    Gorgeous photo of LP it’s so nice to catch them when they are naturally happy. Monkey always grimaces if I ask for a smile! I haven’t made daisy chains for years! Thanks for hosting #LivingArrows

    Mint choc chip is my all time favourite ice cream. That photo has got me craving some! and I don’t think there is anything more therapeutic than sitting in the sun making daisy chains. It is such a nostalgic activity, and even better when eating ice cream I reckon! xx
