Finding Inspiration

Yesterday was a grey and gloomy.  A real change to the very mild Autumn we have been experiencing in previous weeks.

The littles really don't like being inside for too much of the day, and I felt like I needed to get some creative juices flowing.  Inspiration seems to have been lacking a bit of late.  There is only so much paper bag making, painting and lego building I can take before I start feeling twitchy.

So yesterday, despite the greyness and impending rain, we headed out to find a part of town that was new to us.

They burned off some steam while finding empty bug shells, air plants, dog poo's and fighting over the umbrella, and I found some inspiration.

 "A Portrait of my loves once a week, ever week in 2014"

Ruby::  We don't get a lot of time with just the two of us, and at times it shows.  So this week she rode her bike while I went on a morning walk.  As expected, she did not. stop. talking!  But it was very special.
Jenson::  Cool tricks
Mila::  Drinking like a lady.  See here for a fun little clip of Mila with her babycino
Jenson::  The morning ritual of kisses and cuddles good-bye.
