This weekend we ventured to Caerphilly to meet the two dragons inside the castle. They were amazing, so life like. I posted a picture of them for My Sunday Photo yesterday. While BattleKid and I waited for BattleDad to send off a parcel in the post office, I took the chance to get reacquainted with my DSLR before using it in the castle. It has been quite a while since I’ve used it, all thanks to my G7X taking over. But I decided to make the effort and Saturday and I am glad I did. I got some lovely pictures of BattleKid with it. Here’s just two I took.

Last week we jetted off to Portugal to visit my parents and start getting organised for our own move there. As you might expect the weather was glorious over Easter in the Algarve and on one particular day we went to the Ilha de Tavira, which is the beach area of Tavira and is part of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve.

It was beautiful there. Glorious sandy beach for miles and some restaurants close by, it was the perfect place for BattleKid to enjoy some quality time with his grandparents. He thoroughly enjoyed making sand castles, and knocking them down again, and splashing about in the water. Seeing him so happy just made BattleDad and I realised we’ve made the right decision about our future (more about that to come shortly on the blog).

A bit later than normal simply because we have been so busy getting ready for our holiday and forthcoming move. We didn’t get to go anywhere ourselves this weekend as we had another family photo shoot on Saturday afternoon so this week’s pictures of BattleKid are from the day we let him loose on his new Bob the Builder toy. He had a lot of fun with him and the song is permanently stuck in my head.

As mentioned we are getting ready to jet off to Portugal to see my folks so there may be a more exciting set of pictures for next week’s post. Have a great Easter everyone!

This weekend BattleDad was away on his bike so it was just myself and BattleKid. We visited a friend on Saturday morning and then headed to the Gower to visit a castle that has been on our to-do list. Weobley Castle is quite a small one but has amazing views across to the Pembrey coastline. We spent just over an hour at the castle, exploring the rooms and searching for the dragon. And yes of course we found him, hiding in a large hole in one wall.

The weather was absolutely lovely for our visit and we had a very small picnic before making our way home after our visit. We had a lovely time together at the castle and it’s another Welsh Castle off our list.

Wasn’t the weather this weekend glorious! We were away with friends visiting Legoland and before we left our AirBnB I took a few snaps of BattleKid in the sunshine. In fairness I put that boy through alot and he is quite tolerant of the camera being in his face. The life of a blogger’s child hey. At one stage he was blinded by the sun and after struggling to put his hood up decided enough was enough was enough and politely said “that’s enough mama, please”. I duly obliged and out the camera away, but only until we reached Legoland. How was your weekend?
