Oh happy day. After a long and dreary weather filled week this weekend couldn’t have been more perfect. I was dreaming of a weekend with my boys, uninterrupted family time where our only concern was who made breakfast and where our next adventure would lead us. With the exception of Saturday morning the sun shone all weekend long, and despite leaving Mr H behind for the most part of the weekend to revise for his forthcoming exam we really did have a blooming lovely two days. A lovely blend of lazy mornings, time spent with my boy exploring in the day time and family time in the evening.
For the third year running we set off to our local pick your own fruit farm on Sunday morning – dreaming of making up a little eat n mess dessert we were off in search of tasty fruit to enjoy with Mr H. And let’s not forget a little pot for Nanny & Grandad to enjoy too. I hadn’t realised but we were quite late in picking strawberries but we were lucky enough to be treated to raspberries and blackberries too. The perfect combination for a summers night treat.
Grab a cuppa and join us on our little family adventure from the weekend through a few photo’s and my first short film. I’m so nervous to share this film with you – I do hope you like it…
Trentham Gardens has become such an important part of our days out, integral to our little family adventures. If you have never been before, think along the lines of a National Trust site on your doorstep with an equal balance of fun for the littles with pretty flowers and a lovely walk around the lake for the grown ups. Even after 5 years of visiting sometimes weekly we never leave disappointed and always come away with a camera roll of memories. What’s more perfect than rolling down hills, playing a game of rounder’s and escaping through the secret garden.
And so, here is our first short film from our sun filled day out on Sunday…
And just in case you were wondering, Snapshots & Scenes is a new monthly project that I am taking part in – along with a group of lovely bloggers. We have set up this little project to focus on telling a story through short film and photos centred around family life – whether it is a day in the life, a special moment, a day out or even just home life – interpret it as you like.
We would love to see what you are sharing this month, and do make sure you pop by my cohosts – Hayley, Jenny, Amber, Sara-Jayne, Maria, Mel & Chloe – and don’t forget to link up your own Snapshots & Scenes below with a little link back to where you found it.
