* splashing water everywhere at bath times.




is all about taking the time each month
to grab your loved ones and get a photo together.
I can't believe we are half way through the year already
and that we have half a year's worth of family portraits to show for it.
That makes me so, so happy.

I think all seven of us who are hosting this project would agree,
that while getting these photos can be a challenge some months,
it's completely worth doing.
I just know that we are going to love looking back at 2013 through this project.
So why not get a family portrait today
and link up with us.
Or join us on the last day of next month with a July photo.
We would love to have you.

And don't forget to click round the circle
and visit all seven hosts.
We'd like to think we might give you a bit of inspiration.
Plus it's lovely to see what each of us has done for each month's photo.

I'm sending you over to see Charlotte and her family this month.
She blogs at The Crumby Mummy
and shares lots of photos of amazingly cute daughter Bob.
Go and check her out.

So I've shown you me and mine,
now we want to see you and yours . . . 

dear beautiful

    1. Thanks. I'm really glad she's joined the "marmite club", the little guy and I are big fans too, but Daddy is a hater and was hoping she'd be like him. ;) X

  4. Gorgeous photos, and a lovely field to play in! I'm joining in for the first time this month after last month's pictures reminded me how few family photos I take, I'm usually hiding behind the camera.

    1. I was very guilty of hiding behind the camera until quite recently. It's tricky sometimes, and I do still have to remind myself, but I know it will be worth it in years to come. x

  5. Beautiful photos! At first I thought it was oilseed rape, can't believe how many buttercups there are! Gorgeous! This project is definitely worth doing! I love it! Thanks for coming up with it! x x x

    1. We went crazy with the yellow flowers this month. Two of them ARE oilseed rape, then the other one is buttercups. I'm loving the project so much. x

    1. Haha. The kids don't, and mine hasn't been so bad the last few years, but the hubby has quite nasty hayfever. Don't think it can be rapeseed that causes him issues though as he was fine. x

    1. Thank-you. We didn't have to drive very far and just pulled into a little gap in the hedgerow to walk into the field. Probably trespassing really, but we were very quick! x

    1. Thanks, the flowers and light were really summery, but the cloudy sky kind of tells the true story of June doesn't it? x

    1. Thank-you. They didn't turn out too badly in the end, I was a bit worried as the kids weren't playing ball and it was quite windy, but they aren't too shabby as it turns out. x

    1. Yes, I agree. Loads of weeds all together looks really magical and ethereal. Which is why we felt the need to plonk ourselves down in the middle of them. x

  18. That's a lovely way of summing up what's been going on in your lives. I loved clearing up leftovers when my kids went through the marmite sandwich phase ;) Congrats on the pay rise!

  19. I always love you me and mine photos. It really inspires me to get a tripod and remote and start taking proper ones rather than on my phone all the time! We always forget to take our good camera out with us. Your photos are always so fresh and colourful. x
