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

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!

I found myself taking a lot of pictures this weekend and have really struggled to pick just one.

Riley’s photo this week was from our trip to the park where he got to play football with his dad. Right now we are getting to appreciate the fact that Kevin is on secondment at work and no longer working shifts and every other weekend. Its to last for 8 weeks and I just hope it doesn’t go too quickly.

Riley loves having a kick about with the football so I decided it would be fun to take him along to the park where they had freshly painted lines on the pitch. He immediatly saw the goalposts and got very excited about the “score posts” as he has rebranded them. To true footballer style he took a couple of dives, skidded on his knees and got himself nice and muddy.

Dirty jeans, tongue sticking out in concentration behind a massive smile; this is the look of a wee boy who was truly loving having his daddy back at the weekends again!
