Curious Little Explorers

From peeking into phone boxes, to getting ready for a day at the pool, to paddling in the sea, to having fun barefoot in the grass, these photos all tell a story of childhood fun and show off what our hashtag is about.

My favourite photo from my own feed this week is this photo of Evie and her friend Oliver looking at the flowers at Paradise Park. It’s so lovely seeing them at an age now where they play with each other and are really interactive. They’ve known each other since birth and it’s special to see them now becoming friends.

My favourite photo from Alice’s feed this week is this one of Amelia running through the flowers. Those shoes and that outfit are so adorable and just look at that scenery!

Our first featured image is by the lovely: @onetinyleap. This throwback to Winter is such a cute photo. I love the colours and it’s so sweet seeing them peeping through the frosted glass!

Our second featured image is by: @laurasidestreet. He looks so excited to go in the swimming pool. I love this image, it looks like he’s playing peekaboo around the door.

Our third featured image is by: @let_them_be_wild_and_free. The colours in this photo are gorgeous. I would happily be paddling in the sea here. It looks like such a beautiful place to explore.

Our final featured image is by: @mrs.chellebelle. Those little feet are so cute!!! Against the lush green this photo looks so summery. I wonder where those little feet are exploring today.
