We are falling headlong into Autumn now... the days are getting shorter, dark evenings are closing in, raindrops are falling and we are beginning to enjoy woolly socks, blackberries and apples and warm mugs of hot cocoa snuggled up on the sofa.
We enjoyed a lot of time together as a family over the summer, and this month has been all about spreading our wings a little. Papa is back at work, and for the first time, my eldest has flown the nest. So our Me and Mine time has become all the more precious.
This past weekend was Dave's birthday, so we hit Zizzi's for a delicious meal with enough mistakes to make it fairly disastrous, but a waiter who was just so fabulous about the whole thing, we couldn't be mad at all. We laughed our way through the whole evening, and it was precious time with our wider family.
But we still managed to capture a little picture of our little foursome....
After a few failed attempts of course!
Me and Mine in September.
Wow your girls really are starting to look alike aren't they, and both seem to have grown up over the summer - where is all this time going? It sounds like you celebrated in joy and they're lovely pictures to remember a great day :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, they also remind me we have a Zizzi's voucher we still need to spend... hmm... I feel a day trip coming on. Gorgeous children xxxReplyDelete
Lovely photos - your girls have such beautiful smiles. Sounds like you had a fun evening out even if it was a bit disastrous in places :-)ReplyDelete
Wonderful and Godly family. We love you very much. x x xReplyDelete
Lovely photos, even if it did take you a few attempts! Think my favourite might be the first one as Heidi's grin is just gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Such lovely photos and happy smiles xReplyDelete
The smile of your youngest in that 3rd one is just too cute! We had dinner out at Pizza Express this week with the kids, those restaurants are great with families aren't they? A nice blend of things for the adults and things for the kids.ReplyDelete
Ah these are so sweet Clarina - I have nagged and nagged Al to get in a photo but he's not keen on photos of all of us being on the blog. ARGH! Very annoying indeed as I'd love to join in xReplyDelete
Ahhh, these are so lovely. And the darker lighting seems to reflect the change in the seasons too. We've have one fly the nest a little too this month, and you're right, it does make together times and these special Me and Mine photos feel all the more precious. xReplyDelete
This is SO gorgeous, it sounds like you had great fun and Zizzis despite everything and those photos are so beautiful. Thank you for linking to PoCoLo :) xxReplyDelete
