#MyFamilyAdventures – March

March has been such a lovely month for our little family, we’ve been so blessed with the weather, spring has definitely sprung here in Staffordshire with most weekends being filled with sunshine and only the week days a little rainy which is good for us as we are all at work and school. We have enjoyed a really nice mix of precious family time out enjoying an adventure or two as well as time spent at home taking things a little slowly. I love that our boy enjoys a blend of both, in that sense he is so like me – I love the great outdoors but sometimes a lazy day at home is what the body needs to refuel.

We started the month with a long weekend at the beach to celebrate Mr H’s birthday, being away for three days was the best way to start the month as we hadn’t really managed to take any time off over the February Half Term. Mr H and I both felt a little guilty, such is the life of working parents and so we were determined to make the most of our weekend away and thankfully the weatherman answered our prayers – our days were filled with blue skies and bright sunshine.

I’ve been so lucky this month to enjoy a couple of mummy and son days, you see I am what they call a football widow – for now I am going to enjoy the fact that our gorgeous boy is too young to join Mr H because when he does I will need to find a whole new way of enjoying time alone, which really hasn’t been for a very long time. Apart from a cup of tea and reading a magazine what else is there to do? It’s been nearly six years where almost every moment is centred around this gorgeous little person so to think that there is a time coming soon where it will be just me scares me a little. I adore our time just us, it takes me right back to those precious maternity leave days, only now they are filled with conversation, adventures and lunch dates in sweet heaven rather than two hour naps and baby classes.

No month would be complete without time spent at Trentham Gardens, especially now that they have invested so much money in a new playground which is perfect for Lil G’s age. We are pass holders and so visiting for an hour or two is generally how we spend our weekends – and more recently I have joined the team as a resident writer for their blog which feels wonderful as we have enjoyed so many days out there since our boy arrived. It feels like a natural partnership as we have quite literally tested out the gardens as a family for almost 6 years – my first piece is here if you fancy a snoop.

And so here is the month of March for our little family…

And that’s a wrap on our March. All that is left to celebrate in March is Mother’s day which I always look forward to, mainly because it is a family day and of course all the little arts and crafts the boy has made at school. We don’t really have any plans set in the diary for April as yet which I must change, I hope to visit a couple of National Trust sites this month, we really should make more use of our passes.

Once again thank you all so much for joining in with me in February. It would be great to see you add your March adventures below, whether a day out, a round up of your month or even a holiday – please grab my badge or at least add a link to say where you are joining in. And of course I’ll see you in the comments, please don’t forget to hop over to others who have joined in, I noticed a couple of bloggers didn’t received any comments which makes me really sad, I would love for this to become a little community rather than a link drop. Anyway, enough of the rules – I am really looking forward to reading your family adventures.

life as our little family

    It looks like you’ve had a lovely, sun-filled month of March! Your photos are so beautiful, as is your gorgeous boy.
    I’m linking up a post I wrote a couple of weeks ago on why we love family outdoor adventures so much. I’ll be back next week to link up my monthly round-up. Hope this ok! x

    Such beautiful photos, you always seem to capture moments perfectly! How exciting you’re now working with a place you visit so often.. I something I feel I should do enquire about doing the same with certain places! Here’s to an even better April 🙂 xx

    It looks like you had a wonderful weekend away at the beach – there is something about the sea air that is very good for the soul I think. We popped up to Trentham Gardens too, though our visit was a little less successful than yours…! I’m already looking forward to seeing what you get up to in April 🙂

    We haven’t been to Staffordshire in such a long time. Having heard you and another person mention Trentham Gardens recently I am feeling tempted. Thanks for hosting.

    You really have had some beautiful weather this month, I’m not so sure it’s been so good down here? Your weekend away looked and sounded amazing, it’s made me realise I need to organise a little mini-break for us soon. I just hope we get that same weather you got! #MyFamilyAdventures xx

      Thank you for joining in Emma, I love the idea of putting this together each month and then looking over it in January 2018. x

    You really take such beautiful photographs. Looks like you had a lovely month, your weekend break at the beach looked lovely and you were so lucky you had some sunshine and blue skies. I am with you in that Trentham is so lovely, all those beautiful flowers and I love that they have added to the adventure playground too. Look forward to seeing what you get up to over April. Thanks for hosting.

    A weekend break at the beach sounds amazing – and looks like so much fun! There’s nothing better than a family adventure with blue skies and sunbeams! Thank you so much for hosting, this is a lovely way of seeing everyone’s adventures!
