Spring is officially here and boy am I glad. For me, spring began on February first - evident in the bright, fresh blooms that began popping up around this time, but spring's 'official' start date was yesterday and I'm fully embracing this season and all it has to offer.
I try and get out with the boys everyday. I don't know why, but if I don't take them out for some fresh air I feel unbelievably guilty. I just can't stay in the house anymore - you'd never believe that I suffered with agoraphobia not too many years ago!
Spring is a budding photographers dream and I can't get enough of the beautiful, bright flowers that are all around us at the moment.
I'm already looking over the hedgerows as I'm driving along, looking for fields that are going to be full of flowers in a few weeks time. I've already found one with some rapeseed growing and plan to take the boys there on the next sunny day we have for some pictures.
When we're out on our walks I can't help but take Beau out of his buggy and pop him in front of a flowering bush or tree for some adorable springtime shots. Today I couldn't help throwing in a crocheted bunny hat into the mix for some extra cuteness - he's going to hate me when he's older isn't he?
Tyler was happy to pose for a picture or two too and nothing makes me happier than capturing both boys together. Although, Tyler is overly affectionate with his brother and Beau isn't fond of too many cuddles - especially on days like today when his teeth are at him.
The sun might not have been shining for us today but our surroundings were bright enough for us.
I do love getting out and about with these little boys of mine, even if it means having to pack everyone and everything into the car - quite a task at the moment, let me tell you.
Being a stay at home mother can be tough at times, but just escaping from the house with them for an hour or two, is enough to put everything into perspective again and make me realise how lucky I am that we can have these spur of the moment outings and all this time together, while they're still little and want to hold my hand, have their pictures taken and have little adventures with their mama.
