Living Arrows 12/52

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

Kahlil Gibran

This weekend has felt very much like Spring is right around the corner. On Sunday we went to Monikie Park in lightweight jackets! We haven’t been to this particular park since a work BBQ in 2014 when Riley took his official first steps!

It has a big adventure playpark which is shaped a bit like a castle with turrets and this was a total hit with Riley. He made two friends as he was there and even encouraged an older boy to play dragons with him. He is such a confident wee boy and always seems to make friends wherever he goes. I only wish it were as easy as an adult sometimes!

I just so happened to capture this picture of him in-between diving in and out of secret hideyholes whilst fighting dragons. He is standing like a proper little model with his hands in his pockets. Its usually nigh on impossible to capture a photo like this of Riley. I usually have to have the fastest shutter speed and the quickest of fingers to capture this little wild one.

He also dressed himself this morning, whilst you can see the new lego batman cap, what you can’t see is the lego batman jumper under his jacket. This kid is obsessed with lego batman!

    Nice job. His outfit is really well put together and I agree, he does look like a model 🙂 #livingarrows

    thank you! I couldn’t get over the pose, he is good at the pout for a selfie, but hands in the pocket is a new one! haha x

    I love it when they start to choose their own clothes – everything here is Thomas at the moment! It sounds like such a fun place to explore and he sounds just so confident too x

    Lovely photo, it’s always nice when they stop for a second so you can grab a picture isn’t it! x #LivingArrows

    I absolutely love this picture. He looks awesome in it. I know what you mean when you say it’s hard to capture them stood still! #livingarrows

    We have so far avoided the Lego batman fad but I am sure it won’t be long! He does look like a little model very cool!! Sounds like a great place for an adventure! #LivingArrows
