Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

28/52 {The 52 Project}

Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.

Space for the Butterflies - The 52 Project

Kitty: All the time spent with your aunt and uncle is clearly wearing off because not only were you flying around on the battery powered tractors but you jumped on the big blue tractor and pedalled all the way to the top of the hill (with a little help from your godfather) and then freewheeled all the way back down again, smiling the whole way.

Space for the Butterflies - The 52 Project

Elma: You’re just big enough to climb onto the see-saw at the park and it’s rapidly becoming your favourite, even if you’re not quite big enough to touch the ground and I think sometimes we must look rather funny with me, wearing your brother, weighing down the other end.  But I think it’s fun too; long may you want to play see-saw with me.

Space for the Butterflies - The 52 Project

Pip: I’m not sure this picture really needs any words does it.  We took you to a splash pad to beat all splash pads and while your little big sister would have nothing of it and curled up in the buggy, you were off, sprint crawling into as many waterfalls as you could find and sitting determinedly by your favourite waterspout, running your fingers through it and splashing fat hands in the puddles around you.  Joy personified.

    • Carie 12/07/2015 at 8:34 am

      Oh he really is!

  • GeminiJen NZ 12/07/2015 at 12:43 am

    I love photo portraits – great work! I must spend time learning to use my camera more effectively.

    • Carie 12/07/2015 at 8:35 am

      Thank you – I found it very easy to get addicted to taking their pictures – it’s one of my favourite hobbies!

  • Lorna McMahon 12/07/2015 at 3:46 am

    What a beautiful, happy family you have! Such a delight to see their smiles and share a little of the sweetness… thank you!

    • Carie 12/07/2015 at 8:36 am

      Thank you very much 🙂

  • Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts 12/07/2015 at 3:56 am

    What happy children! Here’s hoping Elma does want to see-saw with her mommy for a long time. Pip is at that perfect age of just starting to learn to play on his own. He really seems to love the water sprays, doesn’t he? I remember those days 30 years ago!

    • Carie 12/07/2015 at 8:36 am

      Oh he adores water play – he makes a beeline for the taps at bath time every night too!

  • Denise - die guten Dinge 12/07/2015 at 7:47 am

    good god Pip is such a great joy!!! I love all 3 pictures of your children – they seem to have so much fun!
    lots of greetings
    Denise

    • Carie 12/07/2015 at 8:39 am

      thank you – they are definitely a happy bunch!

  • Kim 13/07/2015 at 12:29 am

    Your photos shout happy!!!

    • Carie 13/07/2015 at 6:38 am

      thank you 🙂

  • Yanic 13/07/2015 at 3:14 am

    Oh my, that picture of Pip just says JOY! My son and daughter would have joined him in a second. Nothing like water games to make the summer complete. Love the picture of Kitty, that looks like so much fun! And the see-saw is one of our faves as well. 🙂 Have a wonderful week. xo

    • Carie 13/07/2015 at 6:39 am

      Thank you, and you too 🙂

  • Kirsty 13/07/2015 at 1:36 pm

    Pip looks so wonderfully happy! Waterplay is the best!

    • Carie 13/07/2015 at 10:48 pm

      Oh always – all three of mine have been such water babies!

  • sally 24/07/2015 at 9:20 pm

    All such perfect Summer photos, but Pip’s has to be my favourite!

    • Carie 25/07/2015 at 11:23 pm

      He does seem to like the camera!
