For this week’s Flashback Friday I decided to dip back just one year. One year ago this weekend though. The picture above is one of my all time favourites of Little Miss and one of the photos of which I am the most proud. I love it when you can capture a moment where the kids aren’t looking. Her face is so angelic and innocent. She’s absorbed in whatever was going on outside the window and we were enjoying a quick “smoovie” and snack at our favourite cafe in Stamford. One year ago this weekend the weather was GORGEOUS! We decided to take advantage of the sunshine and lukewarm Spring breeze to visit Burghley House’s Garden of Surprises. Little Miss is very fond of water and she took full advantage of every water feature in the garden.
But it was still a bit cool. At least a bit cool for running around and in and out of water features. If you look closely at Little Miss you’ll see that she looks just a bit cold! Not long after this photo she looked a LOT cold. Her little lips were blue and she was chattering and shivering but refusing all attempts to come out of the water. Eventually we were able to persuade her that it was time to get dressed. Hubby wrapped her up in his fleecy, warm jumper and we went to explore the Sculpture Garden which has always been a favourite of mine.
We adore this sculpture which thankfully has become a permanent fixture in the Sculpture Garden. It’s always a big hit when we bring friends and family to visit. Little Miss was slightly intimidated however so she snuggled up pretty closely to Daddy. It might have also been the cold and partially frozen limbs as well!
Once Little Miss warmed up enough we practised a bit of balancing along with a lot of exploring. It was an amazingly beautiful weekend weather-wise and some wonderful time for “just the three of us” which is a bit harder to come by these days.
Flashback Friday is about sharing a memory. Show us a photo from your past…one year ago or one century ago. Tell us the story and relive the moment. Write about it, make us smile and share it with others by popping back and linking up in the Linky below. That’s all. Simple! Now start trawling through your archives…go on…you know you want to!
