#ShowYouWereThere round up

Show You Were There – February round up

I know February is a short month, but this just feels a bit ridiculous.  Thanks to the way the days and weeks have fallen today is the last Sunday of the month so I’m posting my round up for Show You Were There, and it just feels so soon after writing January’s.

In case you’ve not heard of it before, Show You Were There is my little Instagram community all about getting more parents in more photos, both with and for their children.  If you want to get involved then all you need to do is use #ShowYouWereThere on any photos that feature you in some way, I’d love to see more people joining in!


My first choice for this month’s round up is from Lauren at Scrapbook Blog.

Some of my favourite photos of my husband and our children are ones like this, taken from behind with them walking away, so this one from Lauren just jumped out at me in my Insta feed.


The second photo that I’ve chosen for this month’s round up is from Donna at What the Redhead Said.

It’s just such a lovely photo, taken on what sounded like a really lovely day out.  And how amazing are the children’s hats?!


Next up is this beautifully coordinated family photo from Leah at Home Family Life.

I just love how all her boys look in their matching outfits!


My final pick for this month’s round up is from Mary at Over 50 and a Mum to One.

I love that Mary and her son have this special spot, and that they made a point of taking a photo together there!

Me and my sidekick besides ‘his’ tree. Our happy spot in our happy place. There were lots of smiles in our household last night as we got to bring Brewster home. He looks a little battle weary with a few shaved areas and his front leg shows the results of him being very unhappy about having his IV line taken out 😱😱 But fingers crossed we can keep his kidneys working properly and he’ll have some more tests in a fortnight to check that nothings changed. Now if I could have no more pet dramas for a while, I can concentrate on the adult ones! Never a dull moment here. #happylittlebuttons #littlefamiliesofig #funseekingkids #kidsoftheoutdoors #myfamilyadventures #tbcsmiles #outdoorsfamily #countrykidsfun #outsidewithkids #snaphappybritmums #tinybigadventure #wheremywelliestakeme #outdoorsfamilylife #themagicofchildhood #littlewanderingwellies #storiesoftheeveryday #theoutdoorchild #parentsinthepicture #ShowYouWereThere #motherhood_magic #beinthepicture #mummyandme #wishes_and_wanderlust #domorewithourkids #takeyourkidsoutside #outdoorsykids #ourchildreninwonderland

Thank you so much to everyone who is using #ShowYouWereThere, I love seeing your photos popping up over on Instagram, they always make me smile so much.

Now my turn.

A few weeks ago we took a very windy walk along the beach with the children.

While we were there I got Steve to take quite a few photos of me, so that I could use them for my photography business.  What I love is that along with the photos I specifically asked for, he took lots of other shots too, so I had a big selection to choose from and great photos like this one just to make me smile.


If you’d like to join in with my little community and possibly be featured in my next round up (with a nice link back to your blog!) then just share a photo of yourself over on instagram using #ShowYouWereThere.  It’s all about getting more parents in more photos and I’d love to see as many people as possible jumping in front of the camera more.
