My Sunday Photo 07/08/16 – Red Arrows

Today was the day of the Festival of Flight in Newcastle County Down, a town not too far from us. It’s a big airshow which takes place every year. For those travelling in to the town, there is all sorts going on. Activities, stalls, displays and general fun things. Unfortunately for us, things like that are way to busy. My husband and son who are both on the autism spectrum just couldn’t handle the crowds. So Instead of heading down to the festival, we decided to take a picnic to Dundrum Castle, which is about 5 miles away. Dundrum castle sits atop […]

While he’ll still integrate in to the class sometimes, I do fear the bonds he has formed will weaken a little. Of course, I’m sure he’ll […]

Snap It Children’s Photography Linky #3

Hello everyone, welcome to week 3 of my new children’s photography linky, Snap It! I hope you’ve all had a great week! It’s been another week of terrible weather here in Northern Ireland. You can certainly tell it’s the summer holidays anyway. It’s rained on and off for almost seven straight days. Even today, the sun streams though my window, I spy a big grey cloud in the distance. Typical eh? We did manage to get out with the camera one afternoon this week. On Tuesday afternoon we had a few hours of sunshine, so headed out in to the […]

Hello everyone, welcome to my new children’s photography linky Snap It! I hope you’ve all had a great week. I can’t believe Thursday has come around so fast! Today is a special Thursday for us, as it’s the kids last day at school. We’re really looking forward to the summer holidays, I think we all need a break from the school run! I’m hoping we can go out with the cameras a lot more during the summer so we can get lots of photos for this linky. Let’s hope we get the weather for it! Thank you to Happy Go […]
