You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

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).

Win a £100 voucher for a Bluebell Mini Session with Sweet Whimsy Photography

Last year I was lucky enough to win a voucher for a photo shoot with the most amazing local photographer here in South Wales. We had an autumnal family photo shoot with Donna of Sweet Whimsy Photography and were blown away with the results. So much so we’ve just had our second shoot with her and are eagerly awaiting the photographs from that session.

Donna has kindly offered someone the chance to win a £100 voucher towards a bluebell mini session with her at the end of the month. The voucher will cover the cost of the photo shoot and the remainder can be put towards your prints or digital copies.

The sessions will take place on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th April, so you must be available to attend on one of those days, and be able to make your own way to Wenallt Woods. You can bring all the family members along, although these mini sessions are not suitable for babies who are not yet able to sit unaided.

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!
