Me and Mine Project - August 2017

We've had such a busy August doing plenty of fun family things. We've been on days out, a weekend away in London and a 2 week holiday to Turkey. Shamefully, out of all the fab things we've done we have only taken 2 family shots! I'm gutted! I've taken plenty of other pictures, but only 2 measly photos of us altogether. I honestly can't believe it.

My last Me and Mine Project post was May which had much more exciting pictures than this one as it had our Disney holiday pics and our Disney wedding vow renewal pics so if you didn't catch those, pop over to see them, Me and Mine May 2017.

Our summer holiday was in Turkey. We went with my dad and Arwyn's dad and partner, so it was a real family holiday. The weather did not disappoint. We bought a second hand Go Pro to take away with us and I must say it has taken a while to work out how to use it. If i'm honest, I still don't know how to use it properly. However, we've got some awesome video of the kids in the pool etc and we managed to get this family selfie which I love.

I've been coming to Turkey since I was around 12 years old and i'm so sad to see that with recent world events etc that the tourism has gone down. It's a beautiful country and we've never had a bad holiday there.
This picture was taken at a water park that mainly the locals use and we spotted the Turkish flag at the entrance so we grabbed a picture in-front of it. It felt poignant to have one there.

We also had a 2 night stay in London which was honestly so relaxing. We normally only visit for 1 night and it's usually very busy and rushed. We visited Hamleys, the Disney Store, had meals out, went swimming, had the Genie's afternoon tea and went to the Rooftop Gardens. It was the best weekend we've ever had in London. I'll be writing about it on my blog soon.

Together this month we've loved:
Jumping in the pool
Reading Three Little Monkey's
Lazy mornings 
PJ days
Playing in the Park
The Sunshine

I say this all the time but i'm really going to make an effort to get a decent family shot each month. This is why I join in with this project so that I can create memories from moments. I just need to remember to get that camera out. 
After such a busy August, we don't currently have any big plans for September. Eva starts reception in school so our days and routines will all be different.

The Me + Mine Project - Dear Beautiful


  1. Wow that's a lot you've been up to,I am so jealous that you did the Genie's afternoon tea as it's one I've been meaning to do for ages x

    1. I loved it. Desperate to do the beauty and the beast one now x

  2. I have never been but everyone says it is fab! Looks like you had a fab time

  3. I can see you had a great summer. Nice. Would love to visit Turkey one day.

  4. Your London trip sounds so ideal - much better than rushing around all the tourist spots! :)

  5. Your Turkey holidays sounds amazing, I went there a few years ago and it was such a beautiful place! I've just googled the Genie's Afternoon Tea and it sounds amazing! xx

  6. I've been to Turkey and it is a lovely country. We have so few photos of all of us 5 :(

  7. It sounds like you had a lovely August. It's always nice to take your time when you visit London to appreciate more of what it has to offer!

  8. Sounds like you've had a lovely month. I've never been to Turkey but all I've ever heard from people is how nice it is there and how lovely the people are, so it is sad that tourism is down there! Hope Eva had a good first day in reception!x

  9. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I've not been to Turkey for almost 10 years but I have so many fond memories, it really is a beautiful country.

  10. What a lovely August you've had. I've not been to Turkey but it sounds fabulous xx

  11. I've always wanted to go to Turkey. My sister went a few years back and it looked lovely, especially the pool! She went before she had kids, but I think it looks like a great place to kids too x

  12. how lovely to get away with plenty of family this summer - such a beautiful family x

  13. It's so hard to get photos as a family, isn't it? It's mostly selfies or asking random people to take one of you. I should have taken one of you all at Paw Patrol! xx

  14. That sounds like an amazing month and you might only have a couple of family shots but they're both lovely x x

  15. what a fab description. Really lovely photos of a contented family. I love Turkey

  16. What a lovely summer you have had! It is so nice to sit down and write about it and just remember it all. We went to Cornwall over the summer which was the highlight of our summer. xx

  17. What a lovely holiday in Turkey you had. Sounds like you made the most of summer and made some amazing family memories together. Happy September ahead. #meandmineproject
