Tigerlilly Quinn: Me and Mine - April

Me and Mine - April


April has been such a busy month for us as a family, we took a trip across three countries/cities which was such an adventure for us all. It was the longest we'd been away together and although it was a lot of fun I feel like the rest of month was spent recovering (and the holiday washing!).

Now Tom works a four day week, Thursday's are supposed to be daddy/Wilf days whilst I get on with work. Lately however I've been cramming all my work into other days so I can hang out with these guys during the week too, especially with the amazing weather we've had. It's really felt like summer! I know I appreciate my one on one time with Wilf so much so I'm conscious of not improaching on their day together too much, but sometimes when the sun is blazing and the park is empty and just waiting for a family picnic that's what you've got to do!

These pictures certainly aren't perfect but they are a perfect reminder to us about a lovely afternoon spent in the sun enjoying out time together. Wilf was running off to blow dandelion seeds (probably his favourite thing about spring so far I think!). I even got a chance to sunbath whilst they played in the play park and umm burnt the back of my legs (curse of the pale skinned!)


I often feel so overwhelmingly lucky to be living the life I lead, especially on a day lying down on a picnic blanket in the sun, watching the people I love most in the world play together. It's the absolute simplest things in life that make us the happiest and I can't wait to see what the sunnier months will bring us a family.

This month I'm sending you over to Katie's blog, someone I'm sure needs no introduction (if you're not reading her blog you're in for a treat!) so go check out what her beautiful family have been up to this month.

Can't wait to see your posts too!

Wilf has to be the cutest kid I ever did see. Each month he has cute poses and gorgeous smiles and he always seems to have so much fun with your photos. I need him to come teach my children that it can be fun. lol You both must be the best parents in the world. What gorgeous captures this month and I am glad you get to hang out with them both during the week for family time. That's so lovely. #meandmine

Have enjoyed reading about your travel adventures this last month. I am jealous of "Daddy Thursdays" but know that it would be hard for me to work and not want to spend the day with Hubby & children. Enjoy the month of May!

Oh I love these photos Fritha - you all look so happy and relaxed. The holiday washing never seems to end does it!? I don't blame you at all for joining your boys for picnics in the park in the sunshine! xx

It has been the perfect month for little picnics hasn't it? I'm hoping the weather continues this way! Love your photos, you guys look so happy and chilled :) xx

Beautiful photos as always and totally understand how hard it must be to focus on work on those Thursdays - I have Thursdays as a "work from home" day in my day job but end up spending them doing everything but! x

We've been so spoilt with the good weather and these photos reflect that. Summer is on the way - yeay! Lovely family shots!

Oh! Such a perfect timing, my mom and auntie were last weekend already asking me to organize for them a summer trip (I'm the family travel agency, ha! just kidding...well...kind of...). Since we were in Portugal with them last summer I was thinking that they may like Croatia but now I'm inspired to check more about Montenegro as well.
