What a week we’ve had! The last week has been all about adventures, we’ve been to a number of different places and BB has enjoyed every second. The photograph today was taken, inside Thomas Land at Drayton Manor. Mike is a massive fan of Drayton for the rides, I’m a huge fan of the zoo so it was only natural to take BB and explore the zone specifically for children!
We’ve actually visited before, when I was pregnant — I was turned away from Thomas Land because I didn’t have a child, although the steward in charge of entry did take pity on my bladder eventually and let me use the toilet. It’s a bizarre thought that now I have a toddler, who was happily in my belly at that time — he’s well and truly here these days.
Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood and its trials & tribulations. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and each Monday I’m going to share a moment from our week. Over the course of 52 weeks, I’ll have a series of snapshots built up which shows my little boy blossoming!
