Welcome to Me and Mine April. We’ve had a busy April together, filled with lots of lovely days out and family time. 

April started with a holiday to The Cotswolds with our friends, we visited some lovely places and even with 5 kids between us it was very relaxing. 

As it was the Easter holidays we had Kev off for one of the weeks. I love having him around when the kids are off, of course it’s so nice to have an extra pair of hands! But it means we can spend some lovely family time together. We had a great day trip to The Isle Of Wight where I managed to get a few Me and Mine’s whilst we were there! 

I really wanted to take one in front of these beach huts, and even took my tripod with me. However when we got there the position on them meant I couldn’t stand the tripod anywhere as there was a big drop in front of them that was too low. So I only managed this one which was not a good angle from the floor!!!!

We were so luck with the weather this day, it was like a summer’s day. I could have easily stayed on this beach! However we were on an adventure to explore some new places. Bembridge Windmill was the next Me and Mine! 

After fish and chips in the beach restaurant, we had ice cream on the beach. Another perfect Me and Mine place!  

Later on in April we visited Arundel Castle, celebrating its event of 60,000 tulips planted around the grounds. Tyler loves History so loved exploring the castle and I could have sat in the gardens all day! 

I love being able to play around with the positions and places of our Me and Mine’s, be so nice for the kids to have these in years to come and see the places we explored together. Who else gets comments from the general public though when your taking them!? I have a gorilla pod tripod so often found propping it up or wrapping it around a post or tree to get the photo!! The castle shot was sat in a bush!!! 

So May brings the girls 9th Birthday, so lets see what adventures we go on in May!

I am taking part in the Me and Mine photo project with Dear Beautiful for my 4th year. This project is all about capturing your family each month, and not just getting pictures a couple of times a year at photo shoots or at special occasions.

  2. I love the photos of the 5 of you in front of the beach huts, and the one of your backs to camera. Sooooo precious! I’ve always wanted to go to the Cotswolds – my friends always mention that area (not even too sure where it is) and everyone always seems to have a great time when they go there. Sounds like a pocket of happiness 🙂 xxx
