Family time at Stourhead {Country Kids}

Family time is often precious in the hectic reality of modern life.
Some weekends go by without a good old proper family day out.
As part of my plans for fulfilment in 2015 I want more family time.
We started the year well with a trip out to the lovely Stourhead - no stranger to us here at 76sunflowers.

Kitted out with binoculars and welly boots we set off on our walk.
I turned around for a random family snap - always nice to get an unplanned photo and always nice to get Mr 76sunflowers in the frame too.

Our route took us past the obelisk and then down to the lakeside for soup from a flask - always the best way to eat it, the cold fresh air definitely makes it taste better.Stourhead // 76sunflowers

Then it was up to Apollo's Temple where the girl was fast turning into my mini-me having to snap away with her camera.
The door here has become a favourite of mine, odd I know but there is something so appealing about it.
So that was our first trip out of 2015.
Where was yours?

    Lovely photos! You can't beat a grotto for capturing children's imaginations - I love them when I was a tiddler. Our first adventure out this year was to our local beach to feed the ducks. We've been there so many times before but it's a hit with the Tot. #countrykids

    Wow, what a lovely place to get out and explore as a family. I love the family shot, it looks like a proper little action shot. The grotto photos look lovely, the under-exposed one where you can only see the silhouettes is lovely. Soup from a flask in the great outdoors is a great experience! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  3. Love the photos and I definitely agree - soup from the flask is the best way of having them, especially when out on a lovely walk like this one :) #countrykids.


I appreciate all comments, thank you! x x
