Living Arrows – One Boy And His Dog

Living Arrows – One Boy And His Dog

I’ve writing this after returning from an awesome weekend away with the family in North Devon relaxing in the stunning autumn sunshine, chatting, laughing and creating memories. We’ve always been very close and spent many holidays when I was a child together and it’s lovely to see my our own children having the same carefree family time as I did. Even the dogs joined us and got to spend time roaming free.

This shot is my favourite which is why it’s made it to this week’s Living Arrows. Our accommodation (New House Farm near Tiverton incase you were wondering) was so child friendly with the swimming pool, soft play, play park and mini badminton court so Toddler was beyond tired at this point.  The only tell however, was this brief moment where he sat next to my sister’s retriever just touching his fur and thinking where he was going to investigate next no doubt.

It was the ultimate ending to a week of glorious sunshine, I’d love to write more and share our weekend with you but I’m actually struggling to keep my eyes open.

A sign of a fab weekend no doubt!

      It was a really lucky find. Not many places could cater for 7 families and their dogs!

    Sounds like a great place no wonder toddler was tired! We have a dog too and my boys adore her. Great that you managed to catch such a special moment. I wonder what Toddler was thinking? #magicmoments
