It’s Sunday morning, and that can only mean one thing.
Time for another round up from my little Instagram community #ShowYouWereThere.
My first pick is from Amy at The Smallest of Things.
I love that this photo captures a moment and a memory that means so much to Amy and her family. And seeing this photo has reminded me that we have some lovely big kites that we should take out and let loose on the beach one day soon!
Next up is this fab summery shot from Amy at Very Much So.
It feels like another lovely moment captured, and I just really love how Amy’s dress seems to match the flowers so perfectly!
There’s a distinctly summery vibe in my third pick too, from Donna at What the Redhead Said.
I’ve never been to Hurst Castle but it sounds like such a lovely day out, and I love this father/daughter moment that Donna captured on their way there.

At the weekend we visited @HurstCastleUK for the first time – and it's one of the best castle days out we have ever had. Part of this was that you can't just drive up to it like any other castle – you have to get a ferry or walk along a coastal path and that really added to the day out, made it more of an adventure and made it a day we'll always remember. I've written about it over on the blog today if you want to have a read.
My last pick for this time is from Rachel at Mini and Mabel.
I just really love how the gorgeous, tall houses make Jude seem so small but he’s still so easy to spot in the scene in his yellow coat!

D A D D Y. Jude’s so much more aware of everything now that I think he’s really going to miss his Daddy while he’s away this week. Good job he’ll have his Aunty Anna staying to soften the blow. She may have left sunny England to come to the rain in Lugano – but she gets to see us, so all’s good hey? 😬🤷🏼♀️ … and I am over the moon to have our first visitor! 🧡
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.
I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness recently, and how so many times in the past I’ve held back a bit and been almost afraid to let myself feel truly happy. I’m trying to be more aware of times when I might do this, and looking out for opportunities to just have fun and let more joy into my day.
Last week one of those opportunities came up as Nerys and I stopped off at the park on our way home from school one day. For the first time in years I hopped on one of the swings and had a go, and it was silly and it was fun and it was great to just really relax and feel completely happy in that moment, swinging up high while my daughter played on the slide.
When did you last join in and play at the park?
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 if you’d like to take part in my guest post series ‘The photo I’m thankful for‘ then take a look at this post or email me at email@example.com for more information.
