Living Arrows - 30/52

 You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” by Kahlil Gibran


This week has been a busy one for us as we headed to Pontins Camber Sands as a last minute holiday before the schools broke up. I really struggled this week for choosing a photo of Blake as I managed to capture some lovely moments, from fun on the beach to enjoying the arcade. 

I settled on this photo as it was Blake's first time in an arcade, and he absolute loved the 2p machines. Does anyone else find them machines so addictive? I swear we spent quite a bit in there so we could get enough tickets to choose some prizes for Blake. I just love how much he is concentrating in this photo as he was being so careful putting the coins in the slot, we even let him have his own little pot of 2p coins.

  3. I used to love the 2p machine, still do! But don't have much time on them when we do visit arcades because my eldest likes to spend her money on the 10p machines or teddy machines - expensive taste!!

  6. There is nothing like a good play on a 2p machine, great way to get rid of the ones that pile up over the year as well. Hope you had a lovely time on holiday.

  23. I love those things! No better way to get through half an hour and all your spare change (and come away with a deliciously tacky keyring, probably!)

    I love Blake's expression of absolute focus there.

  26. The 2p machines are crazy addictive! I still waste a good chunk of time in the arcade on the 2p machines (although loads of arcades seem to have replaced them with 10p machines now which annoys me more than it should).

  27. 2p machines are my absolute favourite! We used to play on them every summer and now when we visit my mum in law we do to the arcade on the sea front.
