I love looking at old photos, they hold so many stories and memories. Even better I have found a linky which means I can share old photos I have found on my reminiscing trips through the photo albums (or digital folders not he computer!) and share them with you.
In this photo you can see Monkey in his fancy dress (Anakin Skywalker) and Mouse is in a little dress – covered up with rain coats and wellies, digging in the stones in the garden in the rain! A long sentence but it covers everything I love about this photo and the story behind it!
I remember how on this day in July 2012, both the children decided to dress themselves, they were 2 and 4 years old and wanted to show their independence by picking an outfit each, even though their outfits weren’t the best for the day we let them do it.
When they asked to go outside, my first reaction was ‘no, it’s raining and you are not dressed right’ luckily this reaction was in my head because then I thought ‘well why not – they can get dried an the clothes can be washed!’.
So out they went! They loved it, digging, playing, laughing and generally being kids. I love them and this photo so much!
