‘Show you were there’ round up

It’s Sunday, which can only mean one thing around here – time for another round up from my lovely little Instagram community #ShowYouWereThere.

In case you’ve not heard about it before, #ShowYouWereThere is all about getting more parents in more photos.  So any photos that feature you, or your partner, in some way, shape or form then just tag them with #ShowYouWereThere when you share them on Instagram to join in, and potentially be featured in one of these little round ups!

Now, on to my four favourite photos that were shared in the last week.

My first pick is from Amy at The Smallest of Things.

There’s just something about the way her daughter is looking at her that makes me smile!


My second pick is from Vicky at Team Triffic (Ted Wears Organic).

I love this picture so much, twinning is most definitely winning!


Next up is this lovely photo from Kirsty at Kirsty Ralph.  Kirsty has captured such a sweet moment in this photo, I love it!

We took Mia to the fireworks on Sunday and she had more fun looking at the fairground light than the actual fireworks. These two are my life and I love them so much I couldn’t even describe. This weekend the husband and I celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary and it’s amazing I’ve found my soul mate. One who loves, supports and helps me grow as a person. Mia and me are incredibly lucky to have him and I wouldn’t change it for the world ❤️ #miahelenaralph ▫️ #daddyanddaughter #curiouslittleexplorers #instababa #mummybloggersuk #worldoflittles #dadanddaughtertime #letthembelittle #mydarlingmemory #thismamaloves #lifecloseup #happylittlebuttons #freespirtedchildhood #themagicineveryday #themeinmummy #motherhoodmoments #showyouwerethere #awanderfulchildhood #myfamilyadventures #parenthood_moments #pbloggersuk #ukparentingblog #ukparentingblogger #parentinglife #lionessmama #myfamily👪

My last pick for this week is from Hayley at I am River.

There is always so much joy in the photos that Hayley shares of her with her family, they never fail to make me smile!


Thank you so much to everyone who is using #ShowYouWereThere, I love seeing your photos popping up over on instagram, they always bring a huge smile to my face!


Now, my turn.

Last Sunday we braved the cold and went for a walk along the seafront, not long before the sun disappeared for the day.

I took some photos of the children together for this month’s siblings project post and then handed the camera over to Steve so that I could jump in a few pictures too.

show you were there

I still have to make a conscious effort to loosen my grip on the camera and hand it over, but I’m hoping that the more I do it, the more it will become second nature, and the more photos of me with my children there will be!


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 thisgloriouslife@gmail.com for more information.
