A real family get together {The Ordinary Moments} #11

I’m back from being a little MIA and it’s time to link up with Katie again for this weeks Ordinary Moments.


You may have read my first Ordinary Moments post about our Skype family get togethers. Well, we’ve had a month of real life family time with my mum and dad being here and it was amazing.



I went to meet them at the airport with Arthur and he definitely didn’t act like he was meeting strangers so I really do think all that skype time helped!!

It was so lovely to see Arthur get to know my mum and dad and for them to get to know him. These moments became ‘ordinary’ for a month but we all enjoyed every second as unfortunately it’s not always the case!

Of course they spoiled Arthur rotten and he absolutely loved all the fuss that was made of him, he became really close with them.  It was the first time I have seen him be like that with anyone outside of me and Mark.  He was so relaxed around them.

Having them here was really good for me too, it made me relax.  At the same time Mark was off work for Easter holidays so for me it was amazing having all that help with Arthur when usually it’s just me while Mark is working.

We had loads of time swimming, being at the beach, BBQing and just generally spending good time together.

They left on Friday Morning and we’ve already had a quick video chat! We are going to the UK in the summer and I already can’t wait, I know they can’t wait either!


Happy Sunday (oo its Easter, happy Easter!)
