I had high hopes for this months Me and Mine. We were together with all the family on Easter Sunday. It was the perfect time for us to coerce a sibling into taking a lovely photo of us all. Rosalie in her cute floral dress and Daddy looking swish. Alas it was not meant to be. I yet again, completely forgot!
Instead you have a rushed selfie that we took right after we bounced off the trampoline park. We are all looking a little worse for wear.
Nick is sweaty, Rosalie is tired and the less said about my geeky grin the better.
I did think about not posting it, or rushing to take a new one in front of the same white wall in our kitchen as the last two months photos. I decided against it. This is real life people, and this was the only photo I managed to get of the three of us this month. Such is life.
Bless bear with me, I promise my photos will get better!

I have these moments all the time, I only remember to grab the camera once it's too late haha. These are lovely though, and how fun does a trampoline park sound! xx

It was good fun. If a little stressful trying to contain the rampaging toddler! It's always the way isn't it better. Next month, I'm on it xx

aw these pictures are lovely. I think they're often better than the 'posed' ones! x
Sarah Cantwell31st March 2016 at 1:58 PM
Aw thank you Hun, we got some, that's the main thing and the husband didn't moan too much xx

I was thinking this was a lovely photo… even before I read your post. It's nice to have well-posed photos but I think the more natural and impromptu ones always tell a story and capture expressions and personality that you don't always see in the more posed ones. x
Sarah Cantwell31st March 2016 at 6:01 PM
Aw well that is nice to hear! It makes me feel less of a failure! I'm glad you liked them xxx
Stephanie Moore31st March 2016 at 8:16 PM
It's a great photo! It's funny what we think about photos isn't it, as we know the 'history' behind them!
Sarah Cantwell31st March 2016 at 8:40 PM
It's so funny, I felt terribly guilty for linking up with it as I thought it was rubbish and everyone has said it's really nice. It's us, and a memory of a day in our lives and that's all that really matters xx
Sabrina Jillah31st March 2016 at 8:54 PM
These are great photos, nothing wrong with them! And that's so cool you went trampolining, that must have been loads of fun xx
Sarah Cantwell1st April 2016 at 6:01 AM
It was great. I'd definitely go in the week next time though so it's a little quieter xx

It's actually a really great picture! Nice idea to capture these little moments X

Awww. It's so lovely to reflect isn't it. I love your pictures too.

Thank you lovely x

I love the photos – we too ended up with a selfie this month after I had big plans for something better, but sometimes I think it makes them more real and captures life a bit better! xx
Sarah Cantwell2nd April 2016 at 11:32 AM
Exactly! I feel like I haven't had a minute to catch my breath this month so it sums it up perfectly really xx

Aw what a cute post! I might need to start doing these! We rarely ever get photos of the three of us. It's so hard! It's like you need your own personal photograph following you around haha. Lovely post petal x
Sarah Cantwell2nd April 2016 at 8:33 PM
You definitely do. We had only one untill I started doing this, now we have a few more. I need to up my photograph taking game so we can get some canvas worthy prints!
Sian QuiteFranklySheSaid3rd April 2016 at 9:03 PM

Such lovely family photos! And to be honest, like others, I love the natural ones rather than posed ones.
