i am super excited to start a new monthly project with Beyond the Wanderlust where i will join with other photographers to document a regular day of our lives every month and attempt to find the beauty in it.

these pictures are moments from what the boys and i do on a typical day... taking cedar dog out for a walk, stopping by a cafe for coffee date (although i didn't manage to capture that part!) and then hitting up the playground before returning home for afternoon crawling practice (benji) and nap time (roo) and ten thousand very exciting domestic chores (me). 

i really wanted to get some pics of the coffee date part, as it's an integral part of our day! but i never got a chance as it coincided with benji feeding, it's kinda hard to nurse, drink coffee and take a half decent picture, ya know :) i love the breakfast shot and also half dressed roo in his undies playing hop-scotch, these are things i wouldn't usually feel like i had time to bust the camera out for. benji is just about to crawl and i thought i was going to be documenting that today when he was going after roo's sandals... they looked like they'd be a rather good chew. i realized that roo wears stripes a lot.

this was such a great experience and got me really thinking thinking thinking about how i could capture ordinary things in interesting ways. can't wait for the next one!

thanks for stopping by. check out all the other life inspired days on April 1 here

roo is so super into music and musical instruments.. whenever we see an instrument in a book he wants to know aaall about it, his favourite recently has been the tuba.

yesterday, roo came up with his own instrument which i thought was genius! made from lego farm animal fencing.. it has an ear piece, mouth piece and places to put your fingers.. clever funny little boy..

can he stay this age forever?!! love it.

after quite a stint of heavy rain it was great to be greeted by a generally clear weekend.. the weekend was also quite productive with us selling THE VAN and finding a new one all in the same day.. maybe pics of our new van in a future post..

my fave part of the weekend was this..
