We are on week 2 and we now have over 200 photos linked up to #capturingtheday!  It has been so much fun seeing what everyone has been up to and we are loving that so many people have joined in the fun!  Thanks to everyone who tagged us.

So without further ado, here is our featured photos this week…

Week 2 – My Favourites

My top four this week, is a selection of sweet and incredibly cute!  The first photo of the four is definitely a recipe I want to try out, however I suspect it would not look anywhere near as good as this!  The other three photos are just so simple and capture childhood so beautifully!

Four photos: 1. Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake, drizzled in chocolate sauce. 2. a baby lies on a yellow mat, wearing a aqua baby grow and looking straight at the camera. 2. A little boy rides down the road on a scooter (wearing a jeans and a blue jumper). 3. A little girl sits on grass in rainbow coloured fair wings and a tutu. Week 2 on #capturingtheday

Week 2 – Gemma’s favourites

To see what Gemma had to say this week, check out her post here.

Four Photos: 1. A little girl with blond hair and a cream cardigan does a cheesy grin for the camera. 2. A little girl and grandma cuddle and smile as they read a book together. 3. A mum and daughter lie on the ground and take a selfie with huge grins. 4. a little girl in fair wings looks into house covered in leaves with a tree to the side.

    I’m so happy that I ran across your post! I forgot to add an image this week! Rectifying that ASAP! I love this idea and seeing what other bloggers are up to. I don’t have small children, so I won’t be featuring the cute images as seen above, but it will help me remember to be more present in my day! Thanks!
