A while ago my friend Lesley started doing challenges over at the Challenge YOUrself blog, the idea being that they set challenges but the photos you use HAVE to have yourself in. I didn't take part as I tend to be behind the camera rather than in front of it but when I saw their latest sketch on Jessies blog I loved it!
There was a twist this time too saying you had to use a photo of you and a female in your life. Simple enough I thought, I have a huge pile of photos bound to be some of me and Cait in there.
Two, there were TWO photos of me and my daughter.
Have to say it was a bit of a wake up call. As much as I scrap so the kids will remember their dad I'd like them to remember me too! So I've vowed to try and be in more photos in the future. Hard as nobody else in the family seems to take photos but I'll give it a go! lol.
Anyway back to the sketch which was this one here.
Caitlin was dressed as Tinkerbell and the staff all spoke to her as if she was the charecter, asking for some fairy dust and calling her Tink.
Halfway through our meal we heard the parade start in the street outside. Because we were sat upstairs Caitlin and some other little girls ran to a tiny window and strained to see them pass by below. Suddenly a manager type man appeared. Oh no, I thought, We're going to be told off here. Nope! Bless him he ushered the girls to a huge window at the front and asked some staff to move the tables and bring chairs so they could sit and watch in comfort. The girls were thrilled! Because we were so high up we had an amazing view and all the princess' were waving at us.
One of many amazing memories from that holiday :)
Keeping everything crossed the Summer holidays include a lot more sun!!!
