Be In The Picture 4

I cannot believe April has come and gone already. I don’t know where that month has gone and it’s been a busy one indeed. Already it is time for another Be in the Picture post. If you missed last months you can catch it again, Be in the Picture 3.

The month started with BattleDad being away on the bike with friends. i took the opportunity to visit a friend in Swansea. While we were that way I decided to do a spot of dragon hunting with BattleKid at Weobly Castle, which my friend referred to as Wobbly castle! BattleKid and I had a lovely hour or two exploring this ruined castle, which sits on the side of a working farm. The views across to Pembrey and Burry Port were amazing. It’s easy to see why someone would build a castle there.be in the picture 4

The following weekend we had a photo shoot with Donna of Sweet Whimsy Photography and the results are amazing yet again. I’ll be sharing them across Instagram and via a blog post once we receive the digital prints. If I get a chance I will edit this post to include one of my favourites from that day.

Next on our busy agenda was our trip to Portugal to visit my mum and dad and finalise our moving plans. We enjoyed our time there, convinced more than ever we are making the right decision. We had fun in the pool, even if it was a little cold, and even made time to visit the beach. That’s me making fun of my nephew who loves iced tea!be in the picture 4 be in the picture 4

Last weekend saw us visit Caerphilly Castle to see the two dragons, which were amazing. That’s me and my photographer’s assistant! Of course we had to get one with the dragons themselves although BattleKid wasn’t too keen.be in the picture 4 be in the picture 4

And last but by no means least, we finally visited Wenallt Woods to capture some bluebell photographs. While I had my DSLR out, BattleDad kindly took charge of my G7X and caught this very special one of BattleKid and myself.be in the picture 4

And here are a few other crazy moments of fun from April featuring yours truly.

Joining in with Kerry of Kerry Louise Norris and Alana of Baby Holiday in their Be in the Picture community in which they encourage us to get in front of the camera instead of always being behind it. I’m guilty of this and by joining in with Be in the Picture, it ensures BattleKid will have pictures of me as well of himself when he grows up. Why not join in yourself.

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.

14/52 My Sunday Photo: 02/04/2017

Yesterday BattleKid and I were flying solo so after visiting a friend in Swansea we took a drive out to the Gower to visit Weobley Castle. It was on our hit list and as we were out that direction it made sense to spend an hour or two there, rather than having to go out of our way to visit it. Weobley Castle is quite small compared to some of the other South Wales castles we’ve been to but it has some amazing views across the estuary of the River Loughor towards the Pembrey coastline. Of course we also did a spot of dragon hunting while we were there and those pictures will be featured on the blog tomorrow in my Living Arrows post.
