Week 5 – My Favourites

I had a real tough time choosing my top four this week. I know I say that every week but it is true!! Your wonderful photos make it so hard, which is a wonderful problem to have.

We are loving the photos of ‘Dilan and Me’ at the pumpkin farm, I had a hard time choosing just one.  This feed was filled with incredible photos of their trip – I want to go there. Such a lovely Instagram feed, you should definitely check it out.

Kerry’s photo, with all the hands placed on top of one another, is so simple yet stunning.  This photo really stuck in my head this week and I knew as soon as I saw it that it had to be in my top four.

The expression on Miss I’s face as she is ready to scoot down a slide is just priceless.  What a gorgeous little girl.

The last photo makes me yearn for a beach and some blue sky! I love this photo from This Mum’s Life which was taken in Pembrokeshire – simply beautiful.

Week 5 of #capturingtheday: a little boy holds a pumpkin in the middle of a pumpkin farm. Mummy, Daddy and two daughters place hands on top of one another. A little girl smiles, hand held high as she is ready to scoot down a green slide. A view from up high of a beach, blue ski, and surrounded by hills covered with green trees.

Thanks so much to everyone that tagged us.  It was very hard to pick the favourites of the week.


I am going to cheat this week and pick two favourites from Gemma’s feed….

I am totally storing all ideas of things to do when we return to London.  This is on my list, it sounds fantastic and what a great photo!

I am in love with this photo:
