One year of our youngest....

365 days ago we met Jonas (the bonus) in the flesh for the first time.  I can't say i felt overly comfortable walking about the maternity ward with a camera, i tried to be discreet and sensitive.  Although the staff, especially in the operating room, were very cool and i think they found the whole idea quite exciting.  I'm grateful for all the staff within the Causeway Hospital that day for their love, care and smiles.

4 point 5 of us....

Changes are coming for our wee family... 4 will become 5 in February and having made the transition to 2 kids at school/nursery this autumn (and lots more kid-free time!) we'll be back to all-things-baby in 3 months time!  So we're squeezing all we can out of our free mornings... walking, running (while I still can), coffee breaks galore, netflix and just taking things at a nice pace.

 And with this gorgeous autumn weather we've been given, we jumped at the chance (finally) to take what could well be one of our last sets of photos as a foursome.  Olivia (6) and Jude (3) are at such a great wee stage, we have a lot of laughs, and Tim and I just adore being with them and lapping up our surroundings together. SO thankful we get to live where we do, it just never gets old!

Bikes, beer, books and beauty - Copenhagen

In October we headed off to Copenhagen, a culture we've wanted to experience for a while.  We like to get away for a few days each year, together, just us, exploring somewhere new. Our few days were pretty simple; run, eat, cycle, read, drink, repeat.

We don't take it for granted that we have able and willing parents to help with Liv and Jude, a true blessing.

Copenhagen, you blew us away, here's to the next time.

Another year, another September...

This time last year we brought the kids down to the beach with our cameras as we felt the summer was drawing to a close and did some family photos of them (you can see that blog here!)  In the last week or so we've had some more gorgeous weather this September, and thought we'd do something similar again - maybe we'll make it an annual shoot?!

We are beyond thankful that we get to live in such a stunning part of the world, it just never gets old and we try to remind the kids everyday how special a place this is - it's easy for them to take it for granted.  These pictures barely do it justice!

Here's to autumn 2014....
