Every month, I collate the best of my month on the Cardiff Mummy Says Instagram feed here on my blog. It took me a while to get the hang of Instagram, but it’s now one of my favourite social networks, inspiring me every day with the beautiful photos and sense of community.
This month, the weather has been up and down, but we’ve been making the most of the school summer holidays by getting out and about and exploring as much as we can.
We had a trip to Barry Island with the cylch meithrin (Welsh playgroup) my boys attend, an extended family gathering at Porthkerry Country Park in Barry, we’ve been to Roath Park, Heath Park, Bute Park and the National Museum Cardiff, as well as the beautiful Parc Slip Nature Reserve. Incidentally, all of these places are free to visit.
I’ve been thrilled to gain more than 400 new followers in July and even more excited that my photos have been chosen to be featured by a few of the Insta communities I take part in, such as #heartfluttermoments #saturdaysiblings #familytravelmoment #lovelifeoutside and #rememberingthesedays
I’ve been working so hard on improving my photography so this really means a lot.
Here’s this month’s round up:
First row – my three children climbing a fence at Parc Slip Nature Reserve; Toddler at Dyffryn Gardens; Little Man O admiring the art at National Museum Cardiff; Toddler fascinated by the beach huts at Barry Island.
Second row – Toddler and Little Man paddling in the sea at Barry Island; Little Man walking through the beach shelters on the promenade at Barry Island; Toddler whizzing down a slide at Perrygrove Railway; Miss E walking barefooted on the pebbles at Porthkerry Country Park, Barry.
Third row – Little Man and Miss E eating ice creams by the lighthouse at Roath Park; my boys trying to reach a tree at Roath Park; Miss E and Little Man running through the long grass at Heath Park; Miss E and Little Man balancing on a fallen tree at Heath Park.
Fourth row – Miss E and her cousins at a fancy dress birthday party; Toddler climbing the badger at Parc Slip Nature Reserve; Miss E looking at the River Taff in Bute Park; Little Man about to get eaten by a dinosaur at National Museum Cardiff.
My personal favourite photo this month is this one of my three climbing a gate at Parc Slip. The blue skies are just gorgeous and I love seeing them getting on so well during the school summer holidays.
