We’re at the end of April, and we’ve had such a lovely month. Although my husband has been working a lot, the time we have spent together as a family have been great. We’ve spent most of the month trying to prepare for our new arrival, and try to prepare Oliver for his new sibling. It’s funny to think that this is our final month of being a family of three. This is why I thought I would mark it by joining Dear Beautiful on her Me & Mine project.
The month started with a weekend away in Padstow visiting our extended family. We went with my mum, sister and her fiancé to visit my great aunt and uncle and their family. The weather was beautiful, the sun shone and we had a great time as a family. We had such a lovely afternoon down on the beach, collecting stones (Oliver’s favourite activity) and splashing in the sea (in our wellies, we weren’t quite ready to break out the swimwear!).
Easter was a chocolate fuelled occasion, Oliver loves his ‘choc’ and he loved that there was an abundance available to snack on! We’ve had a trip to Wisley gardens and Oliver had a great time running around with friends. We haven’t got out much due to the weather and the fact that I’m so slow now I’m heavily pregnant. It’s hard work running after an energetic 2 year old! But it’s been nice to just have some quiet time just as a family whilst we wait for baby number two to arrive. There was one beautiful week of sunshine this month, Oliver spent most of the week running around the garden. He loved watching daddy mowing the lawn and trying to help out!
Our month finished with a trip for the night to Somerset for a big family birthday celebration. It was in a big house and my husband spent the whole party running around after Oliver. Oliver had a great time and it was lovely to introduce him to a lot of the extended family. Many who we haven’t seen in years.
So that was our April, now we can’t wait for May. Fingers crossed for more of these blue skies!
