Polka Dot Family - Living Arrows

Living Arrows Week One {2015}

January 6, 2015

With the heating broken at Roo’s school it meant that Roo gained an extra day off school today – much to the disgust of Tigger as I got him ready for pre-school this morning.

After a morning of attempting to fix our dishwasher and a couple of chapters on Skylanders with Roo it was time to collect Tigger and have some fun. Heading to our local SEA LIFE Centre for a slice of fish spotting (although it is the penguins that they both really love to see) before attempting to burn off some energy in the pirate play area.

Living Arrows Week One 2015 - Roo
Roo looks so grown up in this snap, her hair wild from where she has taken a plait out after being in the bath last night.

A fabulous photo of Tigger if I do say so myself, his cheekiness is shining through with Roo mischievously hiding in the background.

    Oh lovely to get a bonus extra day! Although a bit of a nightmare for all working parents!

  • Emily Beale January 6, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog! I’m so glad that I found yours. Whoopee for an extra day off! #livingarrows

    Extra day off school! Bonus – although tough for mummy – they look so grown up and like they’re really enjoying themselves

  • Alexandra January 6, 2015 at 10:15 pm

    They look like they’re having so much fun. So much joy in their faces. Bet they enjoyed the Sea Life Centre too. Great photos.

    Oh they grow so fast. I do love the photo of them together at the bottom.

    They look like they are having such good fun. Lovely photos. Mich x

    Gorgeous photos and thanks for the reminder. I really want to give it another go this year. I started last year but then lost track and forgot to join in regularly. Living Arrows is such a lovely way to record memories though x

    Aww bless them. The second photo is lovely.
    A day at Sea-Life is an excellent day off when school goes wonky. I may have to take a day trip to Brighton for this soon!

    Been a while since we went to our local Sea Life Centre, and the boys love it.

  • Becky January 7, 2015 at 8:25 am

    Really happy photos …such treasures

  • Otilia Stocks January 7, 2015 at 8:27 am

    Great photos Sarah! Your kids look so grown up!

  • Sonya Cisco January 7, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Lovely pics, full of life! And soft play is a great way to let off steam isnt it!

  • Amanda January 7, 2015 at 12:54 pm

    So glad you made the day so positive. Must take more photos of my girls together this year!

  • Mammasaurus January 7, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Yay you have joined in!
    I find the same with Kitty – if her hair’s down she suddenly looks much older. This make me think maybe I should start wearing mine up!

  • Donna January 7, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    Oh they are both looking so grown up! x

  • Cass January 7, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    Who doesn’t love a bonus day off and it looks like you made the most of it 😉

    Lovely photo in the ball pool xx

  • Mari January 7, 2015 at 9:41 pm

    Gorgeous photos and so much fun, it shines out of those little faces

  • Vicky January 8, 2015 at 2:09 pm

    Great photos. Bonus days off are great fun and ones which you can use to make really fun memories too.

  • Hayley at Shutterflies January 8, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    I used to love plaiting my hair after the bath so it’d go all wavy. Haha, I’d forgotten that until I read your post! They look like they’re having a fab time! Great to have you joining in with Living Arrows x

  • Nikki Thomas January 11, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    Oh such beautiful photos. They both seem to be growing up so quickly. I love the new blog name and look by the way.
