These photos were taken in the middle of April, on the first warm day of the year. We got a bit ahead of ourselves with the sun coming out, and decided to go for a walk in the woods. The problem was that the previous few days had been really rainy, and so the ground was a complete mud bath.
Arlo has outgrown his wellies so was stomping around the mud in canvas shoes (shudder), Sam got mud all over his jeans as a result of picking Arlo up to pose for photos. We couldn’t sit on the ground, so we’ve ended up with more awkward crouching shots (maybe I should just adopt it as our signature pose?)
I was annoyed because we’d left it way too late in the day and I couldn’t find a decent shady area for our shots. Sam was annoyed because he wanted to get on with planning his first barbecue of the year. And Arlo kept asking, “Can we go home now?” So, it was a typical photoshoot for our family.
As usual, we are linking up in a circle so you can click through to each blogger’s Me and Mine posts. This week I’m sending you on to Becky who writes at The Ar-Blog. I first found Becky’s blog when we were both nominated in the BiBs photography category last year, and I was just bowled over by all the lovely images on The Ar-Blog. Check it out to see what I mean.
If you have taken a family photo in the last month, you can add it to the Me and Mine Linky below. I’d love to see what everyone has been up to this month.
