Alex and Riley | Living Arrows

Welcome back to Living Arrows, a post which celebrates childhood. I intend on creating as many of these weekly photos as possibly because they are great to reflect on all together.

The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran ~
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

We had a big family get-together over the weekend which involved sunshine, kite flying, cider and lemonade, sticky fingers, lots of baby wipes and melting chocolate Easter eggs.

For almost twenty years we have visited The Dolphin Hotel in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, to celebrate birthdays and Mother's Day. This weekend involved cake to celebrate my dad's recent big birthday too and we also had relatives over from the States which was excellent timing. The weather was amazing and Alexander enjoyed watching the ducks on the river, just like how I did when I was little.

It was lovely to see everyone and my Grandma (90) met Freyja for the first time and despite being fairly blind she could definitely see that Freyja had chubby legs!

The photos I'm sharing from that day capture Alexander with his cousin Riley who is about 1 year younger than Alex. Typical Alexander in blogger mode, taking plenty of photos! 

say cheese says alex
Say cheese!

Lets have a see!
Show me, show me!

Hope you have a great week everyone and I'm looking forward to the next Living Arrows to see any Easter pics :)
