Living Arrows - Arthur's birthday

I was Arthur’s birthday this week (he is now two! TWO! I feels like I’ve just returned to work from maternity leave!). I worked on the day so Friday we travelled down to east London to Mudchute farm for a special day out. It’s so nice down there and I can’t believe we’ve never been before, it’s amazing. I’ll write about it later, but my favourite portraits of the kiddos are from that day, the sun, the animals, the trains buoyed everyone’s moods and you can see it. Very happy children this week.

Betsy super pleased having fed the lamb she’d been trying to get to for a while.

Arthur waving at another DLR train. He would have been happy riding on that all day I think.

Oh! I didn’t post anything last week, but here’s last week’s portrait. It’s Arthur, at his birthday party eating his cake. I think he enjoyed it, even though he was super tired.
