Our Summer of ’16 in a Living Arrows nutshell

Our Summer of ’16 in a Living Arrows nutshell

I’ve just realised that it’s almost been a month since I last posted a Living Arrows post; capturing a photo of my boy each week ! My bad!

With the whole routine thing out the window due to the school summer holidays, it’s been too easy to let things slide. So as I prepare to ease gently back into school day mode, it occurred to me that I may I’ve relaxed the reins of routine a little bit too much!

Annnnyway, here goes; my favourite snaps from my summer holibobs covering the last 4 weeks in one epic Living Arrows post.

the hippy chic toddler seat was an absolute life saver during our annual folk festival

My cheeky chappy rocking his trusty converse and shades in a perfectly modelling Hippy Chick hip seat during a day trip to the Sidmouth Folk Festival. It was was too busy to let him walk around and to try navigate a buggy but this is a boy with the need to explore and a limitless amount of energy to burn so this was the perfect option to rest him for 10 minutes while we watched some of the street entertainment.

cute feet! don't you just love a pair of chubby legs on a toddler

We are so close to the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary that I often completely overlook it when trying to plan a day out. But an impromptu trip really caught his eye as he charged around and climbed the fences to get a better look. (Until they started braying, by which point he dived into my arms completely spooked by this strange and unfamiliar noise!)

sunset om the beach after an epic regatta week

Summer evenings on the beach are the creme de la creme of living by the sea. But in true British style, summer evenings turn chilly pretty quickly. I can assure you that the scarf was his idea and absolutely not to the entertainment of hid nanny. Much.

summer garden fun, can't beat it. the last in my living arrows collection for August

we aren’t blessed with a flat grassy garden, I tend to justify it by reminding myself that we live by the sea and that’s pretty awesome. But I still pine for my guys to experience the long hot summer days playing in the garden like my siblings and I had. Luckily though, I managed to time a visit to my sisters’ house (who has the perfect child friendly garden) with a run of stunning weather. I’ve got to add here that our Frugi sunsuit has been the most worn outfit of the summer!

It all seems to long ago now, the summer of ’16 in a nutshell.

    It looks like you have had such an epic summer. And I love that you’ve played catch up with the photos – I think you have been far too busy for Living Arrows but lovely to see you back – and with such lovely photos too! x
