Our Family in February (2017)

I am honestly really sad to be saying goodbye to February. Any month that ends with an excessive amount of pancakes, in my mind is a great month. It seems like last year February was such a blur, and in contrast to the sadness we experienced then, this month has been so good to our family.

It seems like it was ages ago when we took these family pics on our day to York, and yet it was only 2 weeks ago. The sun was shining brightly, the weather mild and it was a deliciously perfect family day out (until we decided to get the bus during rush hour with a hungry baby!). Nathan took the whole week off as annual leave and it was  one of the best half term breaks we have had in ages. It was jam packed with adventures and days out, and was just great to do so many lovely things together and enjoy the break from school runs and the usual madness of term time life!

I have decided to do our family updates slightly differently from now on. In addition to my brief ramblings on summing up the month, I have also decided I would like to share the things we are grateful for each month too instead of the “what we are loving”. I guess it incorporates those things naturally, but I want to use these monthly pictures and family updates as an opportunity to count our blessings too. So…

This month we are grateful for:

Selling our House…and that we are buying another (hello more space)

Press passes to Scarborough Sealife and the opportunity to see all manner of creatures!

The opportunity to celebrate my Grandad turning 87

Our visit to York Chocolate Story

Annual leave and having Daddy home for a week

Grandma having Alice after her swim so we could all play/race together on the slides

So whilst I am excited to say hello to spring, to have lighter nights, see new life in nature and have way more adventures and huge changes coming our way in March/April, I am sad to bid farewell to February. It has been amazing for our family and I have thoroughly enjoyed all we have done together and the wonderful opportunities we have through my blog.

    These are such beautiful happy shots, it sounds like an amazing month and i love the idea of the list of things you are grateful for. Our month was mixed but we too had the best half term and that feeling can last and last can’t it? x
