Family trip for this little guys upcoming birthday 🎉 today we spent the day at a new zoo, well a new one for us!! We got to experience the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha!! Our 👣 are exhausted 😊 so many steps!! We even had to change shoes ~ He is so so appreciative of this day he has thanked us a million times, we also were reading about poachers and I was explaining to him ppl do it for the 💵 he goes it's not about being rich, ur right buddy it's not we thought for an almost 7 yr old to know that-we have done something right 😍
Leave this little one at home for five days and then pick him up again for a walk... He feels a whole lot heavier suddenly!! Being at work definitely makes us make the most of the shorter time off! Swimming was cancelled today so rather than sulking we went out for lunch and a walk! Enjoyable all round and the predicted inclement weather didn’t touch us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happybaby #familyfirst #momentsofmine #littlesnippetsofus #xmummyhood #ergobaby #mysweetmotherhood #memoirsofmotherhood #thisparentsjoy #honestparenting #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #countryliving #livingmybestlife #hampshire #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry #livefortheweekend

Yesterday’s weather was perfect! ☀️⚾️ We were headed to take the boys to the aquarium and Dre decided it would be more fun to take Aaron to his first Phillie’s game instead. Last minute change of plans usually aren’t my thing, but he was telling me I need to be more spontaneous. 🙄 When we were dating we used to go to baseball games all of the time. We had the Sunday season package and that was always something we both looked forward to. We even traveled to a few other cities to watch them play—New York, Baltimore, Chicago. Chicago being my favorite! 12 years of baseball games together and I know many more as the boys get bigger. Ethan’s favorite sport right now is baseball. He says he’s gonna play in the majors one day. ❤️
No commute today, I decided to work from home, because I could and because I normally would a couple of days a week anyway. And because four days in a row up and down to London is truly exhausting, baby or no baby. No commute meant an extra half hour snoozing in bed, having breakfast with the baby and still starting work half an hour earlier! All round success and a day of not playing roulette with the trains and their delays is definitely a good day! And a little helper to get me through the 4.30 dip in energy! Shame to miss the view from Waterloo Bridge but I have seen plenty of it this week!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mamayougotthis #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #xmumtribe #curiouslittleexplorers #maternityleave #workingmum #worklifebalance #separationanxiety #lovemyjob #honestparenting #motherandson #xmummyhood #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #lifeasmama #reallifemum #firstweekbackatwork #mummyslittlehelper #mycommute
Fair to say that this gorgeous little boy and his awesome Dadada are having the best fun together this week! Thankfully there have been smiles for me when I screech into the drive from work just into to do the final bit of play and bathtime! And @mr_samparker has the cooking and cleaning nailed too, and braved baby sensory 😂 and an NHS weigh in too!! Can’t wait for my extra hour of sleep (rather than a train ride) tomorrow because I am working from home!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mamayougotthis #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #xmumtribe #curiouslittleexplorers #maternityleave #workingmum #worklifebalance #separationanxiety #lovemyjob #honestparenting #motherandson #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #lifeasmama #reallifemum #firstdaybackatwork #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry

Oh I can’t wait to escape this crazy life for a little while and reboot the batteries. #exhausted #holidays #mentallydrained #queensland #makingfamilymemories
The Night Safari in Singapore is world renowned. ⁣ ⁣ The only problem is you can’t see it 😂⁣ ⁣ The day didn’t really go as planned. I really wanted to do the buggy private tour of the night safari. I tried to book online before. I looked at their website EXTENSIVELY. There was no where to book.🙅🏼‍♀️ I emailed and Chris emailed. We both got a “canned” answer back. 🤷🏼‍♀️SO we decide to show up ahead of time and get to the ticket counter and they said we have to book in advance. 🤦🏼‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Chris doesn’t particularly think we should go to zoo’s anyway on this trip. 🐘🦍🦓He doesn’t really love them at home anyway and thinks it's silly to go across the world and visit a zoo lol. But since the goal is fun family activities. It was overall a success!⁣ ⁣ We may or may not have gotten our 7 Wayfinder’s family Christmas card photo here. 😂😂⁣ ⁣ Let us know what you think in the comments!
Our last day at Disney for a while. We got through everything we wanted to and could (height restrictions). It wasn't crazy busy on mother's day and because we got there right at opening and made good use of fast passes it went very well. Kids had a blast. Ariel absolutely loved the Dumbo ride. She loved watching it and going on it. Maybe it has to do with her love for anything elephants 😂 We also finally got a family photo in front of Mickey, Walt and the "castle". Overall it turned out really well. So of course I bought a little frame for our photo. Got into the park at 8am sharp, and left right after the parade at about 6:30pm. Aaron said he wants to go to Disney again. But it most likely will.be a while unless they have some good deals 😉 now time to get on with our usual week! #disneyland #disneyland2019 #makingfamilymemories #readytogoback #cantwaittillnexttime . #mickeymouse #waltdisney #sleepingbeautyscastle 🏰
We are back !!!! We had a great week in Arizona!!! We got to spend time with our oldest and see our nephew graduate 👨‍🎓 from ASU !! We are so proud of him !!! It was just a nice relaxing week away from the hustle and bustle of everything but we are ready to be back!!!! #yummytomytummycaramelapples #familytime #makingfamilymemories #weareback #asugrad #lovemyfamily
I just left the little man at home (awake 😂 the penalty of a full nights sleep for us all) with his Daddy on full time daycare rather than me and I am off to work to do ten KIT days in a row followed by a further ten SPLIT days two weeks later... 👩🏻‍💻 And then two weeks after that (on 8th July) I go back to work properly with Tuesdays off... 🤯 How has a year almost vanished? I should have so many thoughts and emotions but I haven’t allowed myself to process any yet 🥰 I love this picture from a rainy day last week, how he is looking at me. I am certain he won’t forget me in a day. And I love how perfectly imperfect it is too with the rolled up spare carpet (it’s been there a year now 🤦🏻‍♀️) and the washing drying... I think that epitomises life really and I love it. Even on the miserable days his world needs fun and love and he thinks it’s perfect even if it’s imperfect 💙 I am going to miss him today and already can’t wait to be home for bathtime, Daddy had better send many photos throughout the day of their adventures 🛁 As much as I am going to miss my days with my little one, I am hesitatingly looking forward to being back at work too. Luckily, I don’t have to go back to work at all but I want to and I love my job thank goodness. I just need to make it work as the time I spend with this little one and his Daddy is so precious. This phased return will make going back to work in July far easier and means baby and Daddy get some awesome one on one time too (and I don’t need to think about leaving him at nursery for another month or so)... But wow, I didn’t expect time to go so fast, I haven’t even had a single day of daytime TV in all that time... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mamayougotthis #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #xmumtribe #curiouslittleexplorers #maternityleave #workingmum #worklifebalance #separationanxiety #lovemyjob #honestparenting #motherandson #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #lifeasmama #reallifemum #firstdaybackatwork

Took this one for a little walk in the country today! Great company, definitely more talkative than tomorrow’s commuters... Great smells and sounds of the countryside, also better than the Waterloo to Fetter Lane commute!!

The puppies are traveling soooooo well... we've been through Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and we're about to cross into Virginia... so thankful to my husband and stepson for making this trip easy and fun! #makingfamilymemories #McMurrerfamilyadventures #bringingMarleyhome #2000milesin48hours #GermanShepherdpuppies

Fishing with my Lopez family...beautiful day for it...and Amy gets a hook caught on her pants lol...@amylopez44 @jamelope7 #makingfamilymemories
So glad these dungarees from @cotswoldbabyco are reversible as he can wear them twice as long without a wash! They are so cute with the tractors and I bought them a size too big and so when he crawls around in them he looks almost diddy again. Well, diddy at the same time as being a human wrecking ball, he moves so fast and everything that isn’t a toy is interesting now!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #livingmybestlife #xmumtribe #curiouslittleexplorers #awanderfulchildhood #littlecubs #littlecubcommunity #cotswoldbabyco #lovelythingsforlittlepeople #brandrep #anenglishcountrygarden #mycountrylife #tractormad #welovefrugi

✈️ NEW BLOG POST TODAY - 65 (!!) TIPS FOR TRAVEL WITH A BABY ✈️ This little traveller has been rather fortunate to have had six holidays already (London, Vienna, Peak District, Cheshire, Abu Dhabi and Dorset)! He’s revelled in it and we’ve scuttled around doing all the planning! And it all worked out pretty well for all of us thank goodness! Thankfully with (a lot of) research, learning and practice, stress-free travel with a baby is possible! I asked all the questions before we went anywhere - experienced mum friends, mum blogs, google and of course we learnt by doing. So today on the blog are 65 handy tips (basically I wrote everything down as I went along!) for other new mums anxious about taking their first trip with baby. The next time we go away is with a mobile toddler, as soon as you think you master something in parenting the goalposts move... So now I am looking for all the tips to muddle through that!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #familyfriendly #familyfirst #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #makingfamilymemories #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #linkinbio #newontheblog #staycation #ukstaycation #travelmadfam #havebabywilltravel #xmumclub #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #familytravel #travelmum #thisparentsjoy #newparents #momentsofmine #lovesofmylife #littlesnippetsofus #xmumtribe #memoirsofmotherhood #momentsinmotherhood #lifeasmama #traveltips #travelwithababy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS if you love his gorgeous blue jumper then see my bio for a handy discount code for @cotswoldbabyco

Miserable day of rain and wind today so casting our minds (and nets) back to our idyllic little Dorset getaway a few weeks ago! How cute is our little fisherman with his nets! We had the loveliest walk down to Chapmans Pool and the little man looked cute as a button in his nautical outfit! I am still pining after an adult size of this @kiteclothing jumper that we got from @cotswoldbabyco (handy little discount code in my profile).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #livingmybestlife #bythesea #travelmadfam #xmumclub #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #littlecubs #littlecubcommunity #cotswoldbabyco #lovelythingsforlittlepeople #brandrep #southwestcoastpath #purbecks #purbeckway #weekendwanderings
It’s official! As of today, everyone has celebrated their most recent birthday in different parts of the world! 🎉🎉 🌎⁣ ⁣ @redbeardedwayfinder : Colorado⁣ @lucywayfinder and @grantwayfinder : Oahu, Hawaii⁣ @mamawayfinder : Taipei @lincolnwayfinder : Taipei and Bangkok (travel day!)⁣ @harrisonwayfinder : Bangkok⁣ @gracewayfinder : Vietnam TODAY!! ✨🌟⁣ ⁣ We’ve never had a “last child” until now and it pains us to see her grow up! It’s a weird feeling to know this youngest is your “last” of everything in that age. We said goodbye to our last day of a one-year-old today ❤️⁣ ⁣ We had some wins and some losses on her birthday plans, but she was adorable and happy the whole day through 🌝. She is our little “gift” and we all adore her!⁣ ⁣ Who else has celebrated a birthday abroad? What did you love/hate about it?⁣
Reminiscing about this magical place we went camping to last weekend. So many beautiful sunrises we watched while walking along that beach. Many wild adventures, rescue missions and so many beautiful shells collected while beach combing. But I think the biggest thing is the way we reconnect together as a family when we go camping, that is the true magic for us. So this is our entry for MAGIC for today's #natureplaymay hosted by @allthemumery @themakermum @2little_lims @wild_mountain_child

I’m on the last leg of this crazy journey home and this little bottle is coming in handy. One sniff and I’m alert and my stomach which is a little uneasy from the last flight is finally calming down. I don’t know how people fly without peppermint. Oh and you know when they turn off the air in the cabin before takeout? That’s the point in the flight you start sweating and getting uncomfortable. One drop on the back of your neck can act like a natural air conditioner and immediately cools you down!! So many uses for one drop of oil!
Weekend trip to Chicago with my dad and brother (@harleykesselman ). My brother and I decided to treat my dad to a weekend in Chicago. Especially because he's a huge baseball fan and he's never been to Wrigley Field. True story: while wearing Expos Gear we ended up being interviewed by Chuck Garfien (NBC sports Chicacgo) on TV ( @nbcschicago ). And the next day ppl started coming up to us and recognizing us. After the interview, the same night, someone from Montreal, who was also at the game, came down to find us. He invited us into his (or his company's) luxury suite, which is where this picture was taken (I didn't take the pic! Just saying). Great way to start the weekend! #chicago #guaranteedratefield #whitesox #chicagowhitesox #makingfamilymemories #guruhelpsgetyouthere
Cody and I decided to start making Saturday morning breakfast a thing. There is a cute, yummy restaurant close to us called Country Cottage. It has a full breakfast buffet and amazing coffee. Sophie loves the pancakes and Blake loves getting to eat ice cream for breakfast 😆😉 . . . Cody and I love getting to spend this time together as a family and we love the memories we get to make. What are some traditions you have/had as a family? I forgot to add the sweet waitress we had gave Blake some gum and he was so excited. It was so sweet of her! ❤️ . . . #makingmemories #makingmemoriesasafamily #makingfamilymemories #saturdaymorningbreakfast #saturdays #saturdaymornings #saturdayswithfamily #saturdayswithmykids #saturdayswithmyhusband #christian #christianfamily #raisinggodlychildren #boymom #girlmom #oklahoma #smalltown #smalltownoklahoma #smalltownsinoklahoma #oklahomamom
Today we left the house for a little walk and for once went in the opposite direction to normal, to a copse we had all but forgotten about! I had thought the bluebells would be gone by now but wow, just wow!! I love a woodland that hasn’t been trampled and where there’s no one else about. Just gorgeous, to look and to smell! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the fallen tree was just in the right place for a bit of tractor bum modelling of these gorgeous leggings from @cotswoldbabyco (discount in my profile)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #momentsofmine #littlesnippetsofus #mysweetmotherhood #memoirsofmotherhood #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #weekendadventures #countryliving #hampshire #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry #bluebells #bluebellhunting #xmumclub #everydaylifeoutdoors #hiddengems #myhampshiresummer #littlecubs #littlecubcommunity #cotswoldbabyco #lovelythingsforlittlepeople #countrybaby #countryclothing #tractormad #brandrep

Beach yoga & morning meditation. What a great way to start the day. Surrounded by women who encourage me to reach for the stars and push me out of my comfort zone. I’m so incredibly grateful!

⭐️”Like A Plaid Out Of Hell”⭐️ Obviously we love Meat Loaf 🥰 - our name is based off the song “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad” - and Hat #25 🥳 is named after one of our family’s favourite car-karaoke songs “Bat Out Of Hell”. Our family’s version of car-karaoke involves everyone taking turns picking the song, and everyone singing along at full volume 🎤👩🏻‍🎤🎵 We travel a lot within Ontario so this has become a full-fledged family tradition. The playlist has developed and evolved over time. It has everything from My Little Ponies to The Dropkick Murphy. Very eclectic. Definitely something for everyone. Maybe giving our kiddos unlimited iPad time would be quieter... but it wouldn’t be as much fun! And we wouldn’t know the love/hate relationship our youngest has with “Total Eclipse of the Heart” 🤣😂 🌝❤️🌚 But in all seriousness, listening to a little voice singing “Shipping Off To Boston” at the top of their lungs while head-banging in the back of the car is absolutely priceless 😂🤣 #makingfamilymemories Happy Tuesday everyone!

Holidays have changed. For the better. I spent £1.50 on a foil windmill and made baby’s day. We sat in a pillbox and looked alternately at the view and the darkeness. We went and waited for the steam train to go past the end of the garden and waved to it. 💙 Mr P just texted me from the airport and he got it spot on - it’s a joy to watch little B experience new things. It really is. It doesn’t matter what it is, new experiences with us by his side he loves and if a bit of travel can find a few more then I am all for it! And it finds us time to relax together too. Just a few days off is very restorative. Roll on the next long weekend...

I know we were lucky with the weather (it was sunny for all three days of our little getaway to the Isle of Purbeck) but truly there’s nowhere better to be in the spring than here in our green and pleasant, and sea surrounded, land 🇬🇧 This little trip absolutely benefited from what we learnt on all the other trips we’ve taken since the little man was born, it worked a dream (even when he woke at 11pm on the first night and would only sleep in the middle of our bed 🤦🏻‍♀️). We just filled the car and pootled 90 minutes to an Airbnb by the sea and it felt a million miles from home. We switched off, didn’t put the TV on and all relaxed and enjoyed family time without the rush! Yes I love a lovely trip abroad in a fancy (family friendly) hotel, but the simplicity of a staycation I think I love (maybe) just a little bit more 💙 A different kind of luxury! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #familyfriendly #familyfirst #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #makingfamilymemories #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #longweekend #staycation #ukstaycation #bythesea #travelmadfam #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #purbecks #familytravel #travelmum #thisparentsjoy

Lunch and a lazy morning @thepig_hotel on Studland was the perfect al fresco end to our mini break in Dorset! It was surprisingly family friendly as well as the food, wine and grounds being lovely! As soon as the new one in Cornwall is taking bookings we will be making plans to stay! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thepighotel #thepigonthebeach #longlunch #familyfriendly #familyfirst #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #makingfamilymemories #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #longweekend #boutiquehotel #staycation #ukstaycation #bythesea #travelmadfam #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #purbecks #familytravel #travelmum

⭐️ He tried his hardest every day to win the golden star ⭐️ Zog is one of Archie’s favourite bedtime books so he was delighted when we took him to the forest this week to go on his very on Zog adventure trail. We are lucky that we have one right on our doorstep at Salcey Forest, but I’m pretty sure they have these trails all over the UK and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s s great way to explore the outdoors, the activities on route get children learning and talking about nature and they get so find and discover some favourite characters. - What really impressed me is that the trail is completely free to do, but you can pick up a pack at the forest for around £3 which comes with an activity book, reward stickers and some special secret glassses to look for hidden clues. Such a fun family day out, Archie is already wanting to go back again. - What adventures have you been on this weekend?
Sunday morning movie fun with this crew. Now off to make my Sunday productive... #butfirstcafecito
The little man planned a great walking route for us today! He was wide awake and raring to go at 5.30 🙄 But it was only after his 7am bottle and 8am porridge (he happily waited it out) that we were!! We took a stroll (13km...) down to Chapmans Pool beach and back again and it was gorgeous. Reminded us of Cornwall, Jamaica and bits of South Africa in equal measure. The sunshine was rather lovely too! And we found an old anchor and mine (empty) on the beach and some lambs, llamas and the Swanage steam railway too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS, if you love his dapper nautical knitwear today then it’s from @cotswoldbabyco and there’s a happy little discount code in my profile!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀PPS, just realised he’s holding my hand in photo two 💙💙💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #countryliving #livingmybestlife #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry #longweekend #bythesea #travelmadfam #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #southwestcoastpath #purbecks #purbeckway #weekendwanderings
Shawn and I were so happy to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary by watching Erin in her first dance recital! We couldn't be more proud. I know she didn't have the lead but she was our star of the show❤
And a family portrait too! Baby wasn’t thrilled by the gale force wind at this point!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #countryliving #livingmybestlife #hampshire #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry #longweekend #bythesea #travelmadfam #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood #southwestcoastpath #purbecks #windyday
He’s spellbound by the sound of the wind in the grass and from watching the crashing waves, he’s been asleep for an hour since (even with hail falling!)! 🚜 But rather than the stunning scenery, can we just admire his leggings and the tractor on his cute little bottom!! 💙 We were thrilled to be chosen as brand reps for @cotswoldbabyco last week and these leggings are just one of the purchases I have made so far! Perfect for cow spotting at home or seal spotting in Dorset!! If you fancy some of your own, or something else equally lovely, then you can get 10% off using the discount code in my profile. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #littlecubs #littlecubcommunity #cotswoldbabyco #lovelythingsforlittlepeople #countrybaby #countryclothing #tractormad #brandrep #shopsmall #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #reallifemum #wearetravelmums #rememberthesemoments #weekendadventures #countryliving #livingmybestlife #hampshire #mycountrylife #lifeinthecountry #longweekend #bythesea #travelmadfam #curiouslittleexplorers #havebabywilltravel #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #awanderfulchildhood
