A UK BASED FAMILY & LIFESTYLE BLOG

I love this top picture. It's become one of my favourites. I feel like it sums us up as a family. Well most of the time anyway - family life's not always so smiley. Some days are mega hard and challenging and draining and all of those other things. But a lot of the time, these happy, crazy, fun smiles sum us all up just perfectly. 




I love that with these guys it really doesn't matter who walks past or drives by and sees us posing in front of a tripod with a DSLR stuck to the top, in the centre of a field full of yellow on a slightly chilly day (despite the lack of coats). It doesn't matter if they watch us run back and forth, taking attempt after attempt because one of us had our eyes closed, wasn't in the shot, or the photo was too dark. I don't worry about how mad we look running after the two smallest members of the family who've teamed up and done a runner just as the self-timer goes off.
