Living Arrows – 14/52

This past week has been picnic weather.

We have basked like snakes beneath the blue skies and sun, watched fluffy clouds drift lazily above our heads.  We have taken off your shoes and let you feel the grass beneath your toes, given you tastes of hummus from our fingertips.  We have laughed together, played together.  You have discovered a new game – ‘Boo’ – and claimed it as the Best Thing Ever.

It reminds me of other picnics.

We revised for our GCSEs in this park, your mama and I.  Fifteen years old.  We spread a blanket across the grass and munched Mini Eggs as we swotted over our tomes.

We discussed most of our dreams in this park across the years.  Walking the dog(s) multiple times daily has given us plenty of opportunities to spend focused ‘us time’ here.

And now we have you.

It has been picnic weather and we have been playing with our dreams.

    They are adorable! It’s so funny to think back sometimes isn’t it? Would you have guessed at 15 you’d be back there as a family? Thanks for sharing, I love seeing your posts each week x

    I love being able to take the kids to places me and hubby have been as young people in love. There are still a few places we need to go!

    It’s so lovely to read how you can share moments and places with the children as they grow up just like you two ladies did
