Living Arrows – 27/52 {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:

Mudpie Fridays

Sophie and Lily

Hot Pink Wellingtons

This week’s photos were taken over the weekend. We had two nights at two different hotels and two days out as well – I’m sitting here on Sunday night and needing another weekend to get over it! Little Man’s photo was taken on Friday night when he was planning what we were going to do on Saturday. He loves a map and even took Holibob Bear along for the adventure!

LP’s photo was taken at Peppa Pig World on Saturday. The children are probably at the top of the age range for Peppa Pig World and were definitely some of the oldest children there. But, they loved it. The rides, the music, the buildings and the characters – they were in their element. Many children grow up so quickly so I’m holding on to this love of cartoon characters for as long as possible.

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.

    Ah I love that photo of LP, you defintely need to treasure these moments. I love that Troy likes to be organised, so cute x

    We’ve managed to avoid Peppa Pig so far, she knows who it is and like the toys, but overall prefers Paw Patrol! #LivingArrows

    Peppa Pig world is so on our list to do! She looks so happy there! And he looks really into it! A fab week for you guys for sure!

    Little Man is such a studious little thing. And look at how chuffed LP looks to be meeting Peppa! Cuties, the pair of them! Little M is yet to discover Peppa Pig, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time! x

    I’m with little man, I love those maps and planning what we are going to do on a day out. My little girl still loves Peppa Pig even at 5 although they both seem to have outgrown Cbeebies already which makes me a little sad. Have a lovely week Donna x

    Indiana always says she’s too big for Peppa, but I know she secretly still loves it haha. Sounds like such a fun weekend for your two! xx

    Sounds like a busy weekend. I’d love to take Blake to peppy pug world it does look fun.

    I think it is great to keep them as young as possible for as long as possible! Nothing wrong with being one of the oldest there, just means you’re not trying to make them grow up too fast! Love it! #livingarrows

    We used to have annual passes to Peppa Pig World but this year decided not to renew as we’re off to Disney. It’s nice to see they both had a great time, it’s lovely that it’s just down the road isn’t it? x

    N loved Pepper Pig World in February too. Think that would be the first and last time though.

    Peppa pig is a tad irritating to adults, but kids love it. We did Peppa pig world when it first opened & it was fab. Beautiful photo of LP. X

    Thank you so much for sharing our photo! Love the Peppa Pig world shot – I expected to hate our trip there, but I have to confess I loved every minute! I must take Max again before he’s reached 1m and we have to pay for him!

  13. July 5, 2017 / 2:52 pm

    Great round up of pictures. And I love the ones of Little Man and LP. Bet they had a ball!

    As you know 😉 we’re looking at taking our girls to Peppa Pig World soon. It sounds like yours had a fab time and I just know Pixie will be in her element! (Me not so much…)

    Thank you for hosting! X

    We must visit Pepper Pig world! I know Eco would love it! You don’t have to worry about your littles growing out of love with cartoon characters as they are just as enjoyable as a teenager and adult 🙂 #Livingarrows

    Aww that picture, definitely old onto it for as long as possible. The boys enjoyed it there with Ava when we went recently, they loved the older rides especially the Dinosaur ones. Eilidh x

    My son also loves maps. He has a atlas above his bed and every night before he goes to sleep we travel to a different place and learn something about it 🙂 Lovely photos and thank you for hosting

    I love LM looking at his map 🙂 And how happy does LP look? I’m strangely proud of the fact that my two have still never seen Peppa (and neither have I!)

  19. July 10, 2017 / 5:21 am

    Oh I’ve heard lots of good things about Peppa Pig World – looks like they had fun anyway! I seem to have escaped Peppa Pig on tv, but I know my niece loves it! x

    Thank you for choosing one of our photos! Wow two different hotels and two days out. I would be the same. Love how little man is planning. Lovely picture of LP too, glad they had a great time xx #livingarrows
