I recently had the greatest pleasure of spending an entire day with my gorgeous best friend Sandy and her beautiful family, hubby Danny and kidlets Alexis (aka Lexi) and Noah (aka Boof, ratbag or eating machine!!! LOL) to photograph a day in their life.
It all started with a sleep over. An early rise prompted by the ever so handsome Noah at the bright and early time of 6:30am. Cuddles with Mum and Dad in bed is a must on a saturday morning ♥ it was all action from there. Brekkie was served by big sister Lexi. Teeth brushing never looked like so much fun haha and soon after that it was time for us girls to head out to Lexi’s Theatre Bugs dance lessons. Once Miss Twinkle Toes had finished her delightful performance a quick trip to the post office was required to send a super special parcel to a family member for her birthday. Sandy and Lexi had planned for an outing to the local garden nursery shop to buy strawberry punnets to plant. Little bouncing bean Noah (who we all took turns in chasing after!) reminded me of my eldest, Ethan when he was a toddler. Both have an ENORMOUS amount of energy. I love the seeing the world through their eyes. Master adventurers!
With strawberry seedlings lovingly planted and watered, Miss Lexi sang her baby plants a little song of happiness and growth. Gorgeous little hippy ♥ just like her beautiful Mumma
The moment Mr. Noah was napping it was pampering time for Miss Lexi and her Mumma. With a quiet moment to spare we were able to sneak in some fun photos of Mum and Dad. I cheekily brought along a questionnaire for them to fill out with fun, light hearted questions about each other! It was comical but also endearing getting to know just that little bit more about my dear friends.
These are the moments as a family that we treasure! The every day stuff! Think of ALL the times you turn to your partner or a friend and say “remember that time….” it’s the simple things like a goofy smile from one of your kids, an unexpected flower gifted to you that was proudly picked from your garden (like the precious soursob or dandelion) and fun trips out as a family. Even if someone had a melt down on a big excursion! it happens doesn’t it! that’s life and and it’s all about adventures. Kids grow up so fast, memories sometimes escape us in this crazy busy life but photos will always remain. Like a story that we lovingly share for many years…
