Down by the Lily Ponds — The Ordinary Moments #10
With baby #2's arrival not far off, we decided to set off on a short baby-moon to Wales and whilst we were there, we visited the lily ponds at Bosherston, Stackpole—a 20-ish minute walk (though there is a longer one if you'd prefer) through a beautiful nature reserve to visit the secluded Broadhaven beach.
As excited as we all are to meet our new son or daughter and sibling, we took the time to enjoy our last holiday together before we become a family of 4. It was quiet and serene and A loved exploring the caves, climbing the dunes and throwing pebbles in the stream. though a spare set of clothes was a necessity!
Depending on the season, you can be sure to encounter different types of wildlife on the walk to the beach; we were told to be on the lookout out for a Mother swan and her new arrivals (which seemed rather fitting) and it was lovely when we finally spotted them swimming around the edge of the lake. The walk wasn't ideal with a pushchair but we managed it without too much trouble and once we'd arrived at Broadhaven, we left it to one side whilst we went exploring (or in A's case, splashed in the stream, fell over and got drenched within 5 minutes).
I adore these shots we managed to take of the afternoon (though I wish there were more of me!) and they'll always remind me of our last get-away enjoying being a unit of 3 before baby #2 arrives. At around 30 weeks pregnant, it was the perfect time to get away, as I still had a fair amount of energy, and wasn't too huge and uncomfortable (though I'm getting there now). We relaxed on A's routine and he fell asleep cuddling bump each evening with us on the sofa; my first baby is growing up so fast and it's simple moments like these that we'll cherish forever.
