Special friendships & adventures

Isinkwe(18of130)

I will never forget the days, just over two and a half years ago, that three of my close friends and I all found out we were expecting. I remember one after each other, a few weeks apart, sharing the news with one another and all being so surprised, having a good laugh about it and then getting very excited that we were going to share this journey together. Of course, it was even more funny and spectacular news to find out we were all expecting BOYS!

Looking back, I have to say it was so genuinely special to share all our pregnancy stories, the morning sickness, the scans and all the excitement leading up to the days we welcomed our boys into this world. It was even more special watching our baby boys grow together. Our regular mommy “catch ups” over coffee, sharing all the fun moments, exchanging thoughts and tips with one another about breastfeeding, teething, sleeping and all other things parenthood related, were just the BEST!

When Liv from My Tiny Teepee contacted me to send me one of her gorgeous teepee’s, I was “over the moon.” Our teepee arrived three days before we were set to go on another little adventure with all together with our boys. It was perfect timing! I immediately knew this would be the best time to get some updated shots of our boys (as the last professional photo we have of them all, they were still being baked in our ovens :)), along with the beautiful teepee. We had an amazing weekend away together with our “tribe,” the boys had a blast swimming, riding bikes, digging in the dirt and we even managed to fit in a game drive. There is something so special about being out in the bush, surrounded by beautiful nature and animals, and we all got to enjoy it together.

This weekend away and this amazing setting made for some perfect shots and memories of Jaxon and his special friends that will last a lifetime.

trusting each other,

helping each other,

loving each other

being crazy together.”

These boys have already shared so many good memories together in just two and a half years. I can only imagine what’s in store for the years to come! They are even fortunate to be attending school together, and everyone knows them as best of friends there too.

Thank-you to My Tiny Teepee for the beautiful and unique handmade play tent. I can see us enjoying many more adventures with it.

We are really so fortunate to have the friends we do and I am so thankful and grateful that Jaxon has Kade, James and River to enjoy many more adventures with.

  1. These photos are so perfect, encapsulating the bond that those boys have formed. Can you image them all on their matric dance evenings all dappered up in their threads. This is such an amazing journey that you get to share with your close friends. Unfortunately I started late in life and this journey felt rather alone, until I saw blogs from other mommy’s with their little ones about the same age as Hudson. That was one of the reasons I also started blogging. I might not have a fancy camera and do fancy flat lays, and photoshoots, but I get my thoughts out there and amazingly feel not alone anymore. Thank you for always sharing all the prettiness and having us all part of your journey!!!
