Living Arrows #8

Kahlil Gibran


We spent the hottest day of the year (so far) at my Mum and Dads in their garden. We got the paddling pools out and had water fights, it was a pretty good day. Ava wasn’t too happy in the heat so the cool water definitely helped. The boys just loved any excuse to have a water fight. It turned in to my Dad with the hose on them, think he was cheating a bit. Ava spent ages figuring out how to tip the water out of the watering can and then ran off around the garden naked when I took her UV suit off to take her back inside.

    Gorgeous photo. I love days in my Mum’s garden when we can just let them splash and run without a care in the world. Sarah #PicknMix

    I LOVE days like these : ) sometimes you don’t need to go far or spend much to have the best time – all it takes it is a bit of sun and a hose pipe! Here’s hoping there are a lot more days like this before summer is over! #PicknMix

    I love the nudey picture! I wish our garden was nice – it’s considerably lacklustre but our house backs on to a river with gorgeous fields so I don’t feel toooooo bad. #Picknmix

    What beautiful photos! I love the first one of you cuddling your son and of the one of you with a water gun! What lovely summer fun memories to have #picknmix

    Ah, I can’t wait until our little boy is old enough to play in a paddling pool & play in the garden. I hope the little ones weren’t too uncomfortable during the night – we had a rough ride but he’s only a few weeks so it’s to be expected!

    Gorgeous sunny photos. I love Ava’s little naked escape ha she’s such a cutie ๐Ÿ™‚

    You had got to love a bit of water play! As I writing this I’m thinking about getting Monkeys wet stuff together! The UV suit is adorable I’ve not seen one so pretty before! Thanks for hosting #PickNMix
