Living Arrows 2017 // 13/52

27th March 2017

This year I am joining in with What the Redhead Said‘s project Living Arrows which is all about celebrating childhood.

 “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

-Kahlil Gibran

Each week I will be posting a picture of Dexter showing what we have been up to or something new he has learnt.


This week saw Dexter’s first time on a beach. We live around five miles away from the nearest beach which is in Crosby but we’d never taken him before which is probably a bit strange! Anyway, it was a lovely sunny day on Saturday so we drove over and took a little picnic with us. We lay down a union jack fleece blanket and yet Dexter still managed to eat more sand than he did peanut butter and banana sandwiches. He loved rolling his hands in the sand and letting the grains slip between his fingers. In this photo we are having a cuddle inbetween exploration of the surrounding area. I am wearing a thick coat with my hood up because I am always freezing until it is at least 20 degrees Celsius outside! After the beach, we went for a little drive to a small village called Hightown, where we hope to move later in the year.

    I’m glad he loved the beach, think a good helping of sand is great for the digestive system!! Sounds like a lovely family afternoon!

    The juxtaposition between you being dressed as an arctic explorer, the sunny skies and beach is brilliant!

    Oh I bet Dexter loved the beach! Was he ok with his first touch? Some children freak out when they first feel it on their feet! #livingarrows

    Love this photo. I keep meaning to take Lucas to Crosby but we are a bit further away so think I will wait until the weather is a bit warmer x #livingarrows

    Sounds like a lovely day although I can’t believe you’ve not been before. I love the beach but live miles away #livingarrows

    Great capture. If we lived 5 miles from the beach we’d be there all the time. But then we live about 100+ miles to the nearest one #livingarrows

    I love the difference between your boots and the little bare feet – I am the same though I am always wrapped up!
