And so the adventure begins…

life as our little family

What can I say, after spending the weekend in our little family bubble and then the last two days enjoying some rather gorgeous one on one time with my gorgeous boy, my mummy heart is filled with so much love. And there is still three days before Mr H re-joins our bubble.

Before Lil G started school I really don’t think that I appreciated my holidays as much as I do now. Don’t get me wrong the lie-ins aren’t quite the same and you certainly won’t find me sat on a sun lounger reading a book a day but there is something quite precious about not rushing around to a schedule, not setting an alarm and being a little lazy (the lazy part is tomorrow!). That said I wouldn’t have it any other way. Our little family certainly is the best place to be. Indulging in some quality time truly feels wonderful and much needed for us all.

For the last few week’s we have all been building up to the summer holidays. And for the last few days we have been putting together a little bucket list of what we’d like to do together, whether as a two or as our little family. And here are our adventures so far…

Our summer so far feels like putting together the pieces of a jigsaw, a masterpiece, to make one beautiful set of adventures, one piece at a time. Mostly made up of simple pleasures but ones which make our gorgeous boy smile. It is his summer after all, one he has worked so hard for.

Whether it be visiting a man made beach, cuddling in to each other as we ate our picnic or walking hand in hand through our favourite gardens. Or simply joining the BIG friendly READ; a summer reading challenge, flipping out or singing along to our favourite songs on the radio. In the summertime life feels good.

And so I shall leave you with this song. This is our current vibe…

How is your summer looking so far?

  1. Looks like it’s shaping up to be a good summer. Love how you do lots of little things. We don’t do anything at home apart from occasional baking or getting out in the garden. Because if we’re at home, N’s out on the farm and I’m stuck at home not seeing him. SO I tend to try and take him out to places instead.

  2. Life As Our Little Family

    A lovely summer. It’s Mr H’s next week. We love to get out although I am sure that if we had a farm Lil G wouldn’t want to leave!

  3. looks like a fab summer already with some wonderful photos. Ours has been a bit up and down but hoping its a fab one
    too ???? #countrykids

  4. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you, I get limited time off so really I just try to make the most of our time together. I hope you have a lovely summer x

  5. Fiona Cambouropoulos

    It looks like a lovely start to your summer holidays with plenty of lovely outdoor times shared. That photo with the wild flowers is quite stunning, where is it? I remember seeing the beach one on Instagram and thinking how relaxing it looked. I hope your holidays continue to be every bit as much fun next month.
    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

  6. Life As Our Little Family

    The perfect start really, some great weather too. The flowers are at Trentham Gardens, they have a huge display which is quite mesmerising. X

  7. Rachel @ Coffee, Cake, Kids

    Some gorgeous photos – it looks like a great start to the summer! Those wild flowers are absolutely stunning. #CountryKids

  8. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you Rachel. We have had a great week, sad to be going back to work x

  9. Oh that pictire of the wild flowers and the lake behind is just stunning! Looks like you have kicked the summer holidays off in style! #countrykids

  10. Life As Our Little Family

    It seems the wild flowers are people’s favourites. They are beautiful. We have had a great first week

  11. Karen : TwoTinyHands

    What a great start to the holiday. I love the idea of a summer bucket list and that its not just your choice. Brilliant photos. Love the smoothie/desert/icecream one, I’d quite like that right now! #countrykids

  12. Life As Our Little Family

    It has been super. I’m glad I chose to be off the first week with him. I think making it mostly Lil G’s choice with some ideas thrown in from me for good measure!

  13. Samantha Free

    Wow you have been busy – you seem to have done so much already, more than I plan to do all summer! I love that photo of the wild flowers – the colours are stunning!

  14. Life As Our Little Family

    We have indeed, a good busy. I only get to spend two weeks of the 6 with G so really I just wanted to make them as much fun as possible. I agree the wild flowers are beautiful

  15. Merlinda Little (Glimmer of Hope)

    Firstly I have a bit of a heartbreak after seeing your camera because mine broke.
    The word that sums up the whole photos is just fun and you were very busy! I can only imagine what you are going to do next. This one is hard to beat! #countrykids

  16. Looks like your shaping up for an awesome summer. I love all the wildflowers in your picture! #CountryKids

  17. Life As Our Little Family

    We are indeed, just a shame the sun isn’t shining ey! x

  18. Me, You and Magoo

    Beautiful photos, looks like you and your little boy are having a wonderful time together. I love the one to one time with my daughter in the Summer holidays too. Pecious times, enjoy! #countrykids

  19. Life As Our Little Family

    Thanks so much, we have had lots of fun. One on one time is precious. x

  20. Tracey Williams

    Love this KA and how an earth do you get such clear snaps bouncing on the trampolines ? I went to the opening of our local trampoline park and lets just say my pictures of the kids bouncing were a blurry mess lol. Sounds like you have had a great start to the summer. We had our first adventure last weekend to Lytham and Blackpool. Saw the beach huts for the first time and we WILL return and book in this year x

  21. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you honey. I use my big camera, pop it on aperture and the setting which takes 10 shots simultaneously, I then get a few which are clear. We have had a wonderful start. Mr H has taken over this week. I’m off tomorrow and we’re off to Lytham! x
