Living Arrows – 18/52 {2018}

Kahlil Gibran – “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Living Arrows

Each week I link up with Living Arrows, a linky hosted by Donna from What The Redhead Said.  As Donna explains the project takes its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran called On Children.

So every week I’ll be posting a photo of Isla from the last week that captures a moment of childhood. 

It has been a weekend of soft play. I know, most parents nightmare. But I actually really enjoy it!

Chris had Friday off work so we headed over to Odd’s Park Farm (I think he’s decided he quite enjoys it) We spent ages playing on the soft play, and Chris and I even went on the drop slides! Then we headed out to see the animals, where Isla was super brave and fed a baby goat some milk. And finally we checked out the new H2Odds water attraction, which I think Isla was a bit too young for, but Chris and I really enjoyed!! It will be great in the summer when it’s hot and there are lots of kids in there.

Saturday we went to another farm with a soft play (Bocketts Farm near Leatherhead) where we met up with Chris’ brothers and their families. The soft play was great fun…with some over-polished slides, and a couple of misbehaving parents (mentioning no names!) Not forgetting three Daddy’s who decided it was a great idea to have a race on the go-karts!

And then on Sunday, our final soft play day for at least a couple of days (!), we went to a birthday party. There were trampolines, which Isla has suddenly decided she quite likes, and a small soft play too. She had a fantastic time at all three of the soft plays this weekend.

This weeks Living Arrows photo is of Isla on her way to the party. When we told her she was going to a party when we were getting dressed this morning, she insisted on wearing a tutu! She also insisted on carrying the present from the car (we had to stop her from opening the present at one point!) and I think she just looked super-duper cute!

    Wow! That was a lot of soft play! I have to admit I tend to avoid soft play as much as I can, and fortunately my boys aren’t massive fans either 🙂 #LivingArrows
