Living Arrows Week One {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.

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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Oh they are both looking so grown up! x

    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

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

    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

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