21/365 Snow Shower

The snow that lays on our ground at the moment is very fine, powdery and light and when picked up to make into a ball it doesn’t seem to be packing well together.

Jak threw a hand full of snow into the air today and it just fell back down showing him in the flakes

20/365 posing with their baby snowman

Another day of snow today, we must have had about 7cm of it falling on our neighbourhood. We dressed up warm and met our friends over the local park for some snowball fights, the boys had lots of fun and even got to build a snowman, a tiny one that is!

After an hour or so it was all back to the house for some lovely hot chocolate, mine may have had a sneaky tipple of baileys in it šŸ™‚

19/365 A sledging good time!

The boys had lots of fun today out sledging in the country park, although it wasn’t Oliver’s first time in seeing snow it was his first time he ever walked on it. He spent most of his time looking down and probably wondering why the grass was now all white!

The older boys went down the hill on the sledge while Oliver got pulled around on it.

18/365 Footprints in the snow

The weather reporter this morning told us that we would receive 3cm of snow today instead we got about 1cm if not less.
Even though it was a small amount it didn’t stop The boys from enjoying a snowball fight on the way home from school and we put our stamp on the ground outside our house with a line of footprints going from mine down to the babies.

Capture The Colour

I love to take photographs to me they are precious memories that tell a story, they are moments that i have captured not just to store in my photo library but also to store in my heart and my memory. Every photograph is special and remarkable in its own way they can be taken at a happy or sad time in your life, they can bring tears to your eyes and make you laugh or smile. I am always grabbing my camera and snapping away at everything that means something to me or just at a scene that i adore thats why when i was tagged by the lovely A Boy With Aspergers to take part in a fabulous photograph competition I sat and trawled through my many photos that i had taken to see what i could come up with to enter.

The competition is hosted by the well known brand and online site ā€œTravel supermarketā€ and it goes by the title Capture The Colour Competitionā€œ.

Travel Supermarketā€™s ā€˜Capture the Colour Competitionā€™ is aimed at bloggers who will need to choose 5 pictures they have taken to match 5 different colour categories which are Red, Blue, Green, Yellow and White. Pictures could feature natural landscapes, buildings, cityscapes, landmarks, foods, animals and anything else that’s been mega colourful that you’ve snapped on your global travels! Bloggers are then required to post the images and a little information relating to each telling everyone about the moment the photograph was taken onto their blog (linking to the competition). Once complete bloggers Nominate five more bloggers to participate. Prizes are awarded for each colour as well as over all prizes given to an overall winner. There are iPads and travel vouchers up for grabs.

BLUE

This photo was taken this summer in Cornwall, its a view from the Minnack theatre of Porthcurno Bay down below. It was the most beautiful sight i had seen, it took my breath away. The sea was a gorgeous bright blue and so clean and refreshing to look at. The sun was shining and there were lots of greenery and flowers around. I do not like swimming in the sea but this view just gave me the urge to dive in.

WHITE

This was taken in the Easter holidays this year. As a family we always take a trip to Wales every year so we can hike up Mount Snowdon, this shot is off the view from the Llanberis track. It had snowed the day before so there was lots of snow around although the day we climbed the mountain it was sunny so it was shockingly white. I had to wear my sunglasses as the sun gleamed off of the snow and it was really bright.

RED

I struggled to find a picture with the colour red in it of a stunning view of somewhere we have been but i did find this photograph that i took of my son walking through a red tunnel, it may not be a shot of travels in some exotic country but its of my 12 month old travelling through a tunnel.

GREEN

I am sure that i have many more photographs of the colour green but this one is a personal favourite of mine. It was taken again this year in Wales on a day out to see Devils Bridge. The River Mynach drops 90 meters down a steep ravine, there is a nature trail that can be taken so you can see the whole of the waterfall. Whilst walking around i noticed the smell of pine trees, it was really fresh and it was so silent you could hear the crashing of the waterfall against the River below.

YELLOW

Finding a picture with yellow in was very hard and after searching through years of albums I eventually found this snap taken at Wastwater in the Lake District. It may not look very yellow but there is a hint of the colour in the mountain face and reflection on the water.

It would be too late to tag other bloggers as like normal i have left it too late as the closing date is today so I’m
Going to hope who ever I tag will be able to get their entries in ASAP

110/366 Snow at Easter, my favourite photo Of my boys

This is my favourite photo of the boys taken over the easter holidays.
It’s of them having fun on Mount Snowdon in the snow on a well deserved break from hiking. The boys love being adventurous and have lots of energy, they enjoy being outdoors and really enjoy there yearly hike up the mountain. We was extra lucky this year as we got snow while we were there so they got to have a snowball fight at Easter.

42/366 fun in the park/country kids

Today we decided to walk through the park on the way to drop Jak off at his drama classes.
The sun was shining and it wasnt too cold. We thought all the snow had melted away so was very surprised to be greeted by a field of whiteness.
The boys were over the moon.

The boys had a fun and laughed at me struggling to push the buggy through the snow.
The park looked so peaceful with the snow glistening in the winter sun!
