The Gallery- April

So the theme for this week over at Sticky Finger's is April.


Normally I associate April with the dreaded April Showers, a time when it is not yet hot enough to go without a coat and when the rain makes the days seem a lot more dreary.


However this April we have had some beautiful weather, and it feels like Summer well and truly hit the streets of Britain.  Although I draw the line at seeing men with their tops off walking down the street (nor in August either please- its not nice trying to do my shopping in Tescos and seeing white pasty torsos with moobs!) I do love seeing us all get excited about the hot weather and I made sure my toes were nicely polished ready for the return of my flip flops from the back of the wardrobe!


April marked a few firsts for my new little family of three but there is one photo that sums up our month- below is a photo of our first picnic together.  For me picnics sum up summertime and also family fun, it is a low cost, lovely way of getting outdoors and enjoying Britain and being together as a family.  I am looking forward to doing many more as Mads gets older.


















Apparently July and August are going to be a washout (don't they always say this?) so I think its good we are getting these in these Summery activities now.  Of course we also had other firsts...both mine and Mads first Royal Wedding, our first Easter as a three, and Mads first trip to the seaside.  We also had two lovely bank holidays to enjoy.


All in all April has been rather lovely!




Now head over to The Gallery and see what April meant to some other lovely bloggers...

That's a beautiful photo of you and Mads on the picnic blanket. You can't beat a picnic. I know Freya loves them so much so I can't wait for the next spell of good weather (it's started raining here this afternoon boooo!) xx
