Getting Back to How We Were {Ordinary Moments Week 5 – 31/1/16}

At the start of January I wrote about how I wanted to spend more time walking and taking Lexi out, and although it’s early days I do feel like we really nailed it last month. Recently  we decided to take an adventure out to a forest we haven’t been to for a very long time, and of course Lexi came along too. There was a lake, forest trails and lots of coves and areas to climb, including rocks, which J really enjoyed doing

When I was first learning how to shoot in manual on my SLR some ten years ago I practised a lot at this very location. Although it was grim and dark under the trees this time round I managed to do a bit of practice with the bridge camera this, although I am disappointed with the effect the light had on the pictures

As soon as we reached the pond Lexi went straight in and hunted for sticks, whilst looking at us to throw her ball in. There were a few ducks present but they were undeterred by the big dog and slowly moved away from her while she swam about

J spent a long time telling Lexi which way to go to get out of the water and although the daft dog failed on a couple of occasions, overall it was nice to see her listening to J’s instruction. J especially loved getting splashed by Lexi’s shake after she had come out of the water and once again that dog and child bond which has been slowly getting stronger really shone through

We went with one of our family friends RH again, and I think every weekend this year we have all done something outdoorsy and we all feel so much better for it. I really enjoy spending time with my family and people who share the same values, and although the weekends throughout January have been understated they have provided some great memories

I think I actually prefer spending little money and just creating some adventures, and once again that’s really what these photos are about. I really feel like we are getting back to the people we were some years back; happy and outdoorsy, and as the weather improves, there’s even more reason for us to continue
