Me & Mine {April}

Me & Mine April


I’m happy to report that this months Me & Mine photo was not a rush job! Even though I forgot the tripod I managed to get this snap of us on our day out at Sefton Park. Thankfully I have been reading Me & Mine posts for long enough now that I know the ‘balance the camera on the pushchair’ trick. We had such a great day there, we took a picnic and stayed for practically the whole day just walking round and taking our time. After a hectic month it was definitely needed and I loved just having the uninterrupted time with this funny bunch. I can get completely lost in them when we are out somewhere like this, the rest of the world just fades away and we can do our own thing.

April has been quite a nice month, it is getting easier all the time to get out with the boys and the sunny weather was just lovely. It was a joy to get out each day on the school run and seeing Lucas go into pre-school with little shorts and his sun hat on was just adorable. Letting them all loose in the garden has been fun, the twins eagerly chase round after Lucas. They can have so much fun together now, it is bliss to sit back and watch them. Hoping for the return of the sun and some warmth please so we can have more adventures in May!


dear beautiful

    I love the balance the camera on the pushchair trick – it’s stood in for a tripod in many of my photos – and I just love this picture, it’s so happy and summery!

      Oh you should join in Sarah, I joined part way through the year and although it can sometimes be difficult to get the photo I love having them there to look back on! xx

      I must get a gorillapod! Every month I say the same, I think Lucas thought we were going to swing him 🙂 xx
