There was a lot of love for the Blue theme in the BritMums community this month, not just from overseas trips during the school holidays but here in Blighty too. Don’t forget if you enjoy taking photographs, you can also join in with #SnapHappyBritMums over on Instagram. You can find the prompts for April here.
So kicking off this month’s Snapshot Round-up are two photographs from the Southbank, both of the London Eye albeit from different perspectives. First up is Birds and Lillies closely followed by The Oliver’s Madhouse.
Before our family escape to London with @RoyalGardenHotelLondon I was terrified of heights and thought i would panic when going on the London Eye. However I have to say it was one of the most amazing experiences ever! So fantastic to see the beautiful city from above. #RGHFamilies, #RGHLondonExplorer
Project Wunderlust took a sleeper train to Scotland to check out Loch Ness, John O’Groats and Ben Nevis, this beautiful landscape taken at Fort William. Chelsea Mamma on the other hand bravely took to the skies with Pier Zip at Rocket Reef (Photo: Wave Slider Photography)
Waking up to this view this morning was rather splendid! We had a fab night aboard the sleeper train to Scotland – and are now in our holiday house ready for a few days of exploring. Loch Ness, John O'groats and Ben Nevis (looking at, not climbing) are on the list…can't wait! #familytravel #trips100 #familytravelmoment #familytravelmonday #familytraveltribe #iamhere #visitscotland #visiteverywhere #traveltheworld #highlands #caledoniansleeper
Since I arrived to the UK, I always wanted to visit St Ives. It was in my travel bucket list for a long time! I'm so happy that I managed to visit it this week. It is gorgeous! And the day we went was warm and sunny so it couldn't be better! I love it so much that I am definitely planning to come back! Have you been there? Did you like it? #stives
The beautiful and quaint little beach huts at Charmouth Beach.

H o l i d a y F e e l s 🐣 I'm slightly over-excited for the 4 day long day weekend 🙊 it's just so good to have a little time off, enjoying the sunshine ☀️ Love this shot, taken while I was quite terrified from behind her as she runs like the wind 💨 and has some connection with the sea, almost like she's saying "wait for meeeeee" 😂
When you 100% love your @reviva4vintage 1940s nightie (altered to become a tea dress) so much that you don't even care that it's completely see through in all the pictures from your day out at @craftyvintage 😂 . . . #alteringvintage #vintagestyle #vintageblogger #styleblogger #1940s #vintagepinup #brockholes #vintagemama #peachiekeen #wildlifetrust #ihaveabigbuttandicannotlie #ihavethisthingwithpink altered by @thebuttonhole4244
What an amazing start to our first full day in Iceland 🇮🇸 a rainbow 🌈 waiting for us at The Blue Lagoon #iceland #bluelagoon #rainbow #travel #travelblogger #bluewater #volcanic #iceland🇮🇸 #icelandtrip #foodbloguk #fbcuk16 #instafoodblog #foodie #foodblogger #scottishblogger #foodblog #icelandtravel #icelandnature #visiticeland #exploreiceland #discovericeland #loverainbows
Today we climbed to the top of a hill to reach the Red Tower. We decided to take a "short cut". The kind of short cut that involves climbing about 50 uneven steps with a gravel path, when there's a perfectly adequate tarmaced path right next to it. 30 minutes on the short cut versus 10 minutes on the road… Anyway, pretty good end result (and a nice easy stroll back) #redtower **edited to add – we had the pushchair. Steps were so not a good idea.
As for the Doves, we’ve seen an abundance of blue recently especially while we were in Lanzarote. One of the most breathtaking views was from here at the Mirador Del Rio. It’s a spectacular vista which offers breathtaking views of La Graciosa, and the uninhabited Alegranza and Montaña Clara.
Sitting here 500 metres above sea level made me feel slightly nervous but oh my goodness the view from Cesar Manrique's Mirador Del Rio is just spectacular. The site was originally used by the Spanish in the 16th century so they could look out for pirates, two hundred years later it became a fortress and gun battery. These days it’s a magnificent vista which offers breathtaking views across the El Rio strait and Chinijo Archipelago. More photos and a bit of background are on the POD Travels blog if you fancy a nose.
Thank you to everyone that submitted photos for the Blue theme. We’ll be back next month with another round-up. In the meantime, check out #SnapHappyBritMums on Instagram and come and say hello – either on Twitter or Instagram.
