You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. – Khalil Gibran

Living Arrows – a portrait a week of my two children.

We have had a good fireworks related weekend just gone. We popped along to the Wild Wolf display in Bounds Green (Bets and I visited last year and we fell in love a bit. It feels a lot more traditional than a lot of the bigger displays, with two bonfires – one for toasting marshmallows in and another for singing songs around the campfire. It’s run by scouts in their wooded scout camp and it makes for a very special evening.

Betsy loved the fireworks, Arthur got a bit scared.

The marshmallow campfire

Last night we did what most families did (at least the ones I saw on Instagram anyway…) – eat baked potatoes and play with sparklers in the back garden.

Betsy looks so witchy in that last photo!

Linking up with What The Redhead Said


  1. Hi Charlotte, it sounds like a lot of effort was put into the Wild Wolf display. Singing songs and toasting marshmallows is how childhood memories are made. I love the top two photos, the girls’ are so engrossed in the display.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.


  2. I promised N a play with sparklers (or more likely a torch), but we didn’t get to a display so haven’t done it yet. Will have to try soon #livingarrows
