Living arrows – 26/06/2017

“You’re the bows from which your child as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Gibran.

Wow! What an incredible week it has been, this week we have been holidaying down in Newquay, Cornwall and the weather has been utterly magnificent. We stayed in a lodge with Ryan’s parents and his brother and family Shaniah was so happy to be able to spend a whole week playing with someone her age and it was so lovely to see them getting on so well!

Day 1 we took a trip to the beach…


How beautiful is the scenery?

I was immediately drawn to this bridge, Cornwall really is a beautiful place.

How beautiful are these beach huts?


Good old sandcastle making!


I absolutely love this photo, the bird flying near the entrance really adds to it’s character. 


After staying in Cornwall three times before and not knowing where I was I finally managed to try my very first proper pasty!


It wouldn’t have been a proper day at the beach without a pit-stop at an ice-cream parlour. 

Monday we went to an Owl sanctuary because Kayleigh (Ryan’s sister – in – law to be) is absolutely smitten with them, the little ones loved them too!



The owl’s came and sat so close to us, it was amazing!


I believe I have an admirer? 


Ryan was able to let the Owl land on his arm, what a truly incredible memory?


As did Luke!


There was even goats and other animals too!

Here are some of the pictures Shaniah took with her Kidizoom!


Throughout the holiday wherever we went the little ones were always hand in hand!


I could write about this holiday forever but I think it is time to wrap it up, so what better way to end this weeks Living arrows than with a little selfie taken by the little ones?



I am absolutely loving the Living arrows linky created by Donna over at What the Redhead said. Fancy checking out other bloggers who have linked up with Living arrows? Click on the image below!
