Now that the temperature is back down to bearable, I really wanted to take the kids on an adventure yesterday to the zoo.....but no matter how much I tried to convince my little girl she just wanted to stay at home and play. Surprising, as she normally loves the zoo. I gave up at 11am, and we played....and then there was a quiet moment when Otis was sleeping, and Annabel was playing happily and I could hear the Polaroid whispering from its home on the shelf.....it didn't need to beg, a slight whisper is all it takes for me to get it out for a play. I looked around for a subject, and spied my camera box. Annabel loved looking at all of the old cameras, and proclaimed, (as she so often does), "When I'm a big girl like Mum... I can hold your cameras". I love that one day when she, and Otis, are older they may (fingers crossed) be interested in my ever growing collection of cameras and want to 'play' too.
So a new series was created, and in the end it was a wonderful day at home,
a mixture of playing with kids toys, and playing with my toys!
(And are you surprised that the butterflies came out for a little play too?)
