My Sunday Photo 17:33. Best Moments of 2017 #3

Over the last couple of weeks I have been using #mysundayphoto to revisit some of the highlights of the last year. After a stressful year it’s has been nice to look at the good times we’ve had.

This week we are off to the woods.

Way back in January the boys and I took a trip to a local woods that I have frequented since I was a toddler. It is a lovely woods that has changed a lot over the years but is still a firm favourite of mine and now my family.

The above picture was taken of the boys whilst they were sitting on a carved seat. The woods are a managed woods and trees are periodically cut down and every now and then you come across a stub where it has been deliberately left and carved into a seat. Oliver in particular loved coming across these and climbing on them and pretending he was king of the castle.

Greek Delight!

As I mentioned last week I will be using the last few Sunday’s of 2017 to take a journey back through this year and look at the happy and exciting moments that have occurred during what has been an extremely stressful year.

This week we’ve travelled to Greece.

I have blogged before about being lucky enough have family living in Athens and that we are able to go out and see them semi regularly. This last summer we flew out for two weeks of Greek summer sun staying part of the time in Athens and also spending some of our time in the Greek Countryside, around a 2 hour drive outside of Athens.

The above photo was taken on a working farm that also is open to people taking holidays there.

The first evening we got there the boys and their cousins were feeding the horses that were near our accommodation when my brother in law noticed that a sprinkler has started up, before we knew it the whole field between us and the rooms was awash with water being sprayed from a field of sprinklers. We made a dash back to dry land however the kids decided to would be better fun to run around like nutters in it.

The above photo was taken whilst the boys were having the time of their lives, I had noticed that due to the height of the sprinklers sprayed the water some had begun to form rainbows. I decided that I was going to try and capture one of these and this picture is the result.

Elf On The Shelf: Day 8: I’m An Elf Get Me Out Of Here!

This morning the boys got up to find that Elfie had been watching a little bit too much ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ and had decided to have a go at a task himself.

Don’t ask how he got up there because we really can’t figure it out, but up there he is and he is going after some special North Pole Gold Coins.

Elf on the Shelf: Day 7: Toilet Paper Frenzy!

We got up this morning to discover that Elfie had decorated our bathroom in an Elf theme.

We’ve had an elf toilet seat cover put on our toilet and also an elf soap dispenser.

Elfie also brought some of Santa’s own personal toilet paper! Oh dear we are wondering if Santa has noticed or if he is too busy getting ready for his flight on Christmas Eve!

Elf on the Shelf: Day 6: The Plant Pot Conundrum!

Following on from yesterday’s mischievous placing of red pom poms on the photos in our hall, Elfie has returned this morning with a note about planting seeds and watching them bloom.

Upon closer inspection we noticed that within clear plastic balls were colourful seeds and in the pots a white soil.

We can’t wait to plant these and see what happens.

Disney Fun!

Over the next last few Sundays of 2017 I am going to be using the #mysundayphoto posts to have a look back over our last year as a family.

We’ve had quite a stressful year and it is nice to be able to look back on the fun times we’ve had and the exciting events that have taken place in that time, such as the birth of our third son, George.

Starting us off is a trip to Disneyland

Back in the Summer we were lucky enough to get to go to Disneyland Paris for a few days with the rest of our family. In fact I posted a #mysundayphoto of our time there.

The above photo was taken in the Inventions Restaurant that is located within the Disneyland Hotel. We booked a character meal for the boys as we weren’t too sure how they would react seeing them within the crowded environment of the park, we needn’t have worried on that front.

The meal was a fantastic idea and time though as the boys really got to interact with five different characters from the Disney family. As you can see in the above photo of Oliver Mickey Mouse was one of those characters, along with Pluto, Donald Duck, Tigger and Eyore.

We would thoroughly recommend a character meal if you can stretch your budget, because although on the expensive side it was fully worth the money we paid.
