"you are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

This weeks photos come from our happy place, the beach. We are so so lucky to live near a number of beaches and so on nice evenings after school we can go and pretty much have the whole beach to ourselves! Its so lovely to share these moments with my children, as I grew up on this beach and spent many summers making hundreds of sand castles here, and now I get to do it all over again.

My big girl loves the beach, she definitely takes after me. She loves nothing more than making sand castles, finding shells and burying her feet in the sand. Our latest favourite thing to do is make fairy gardens in the sand, using shells and other pretty things that we can find. I also picked up a new bucket set for them, you can basically make sand ice creams which is so cool (well actually I bought it more for myself haha!)  

My wild boy is happy as long as he is outside, deep down he's a water baby and you can see it in his eyes how much he wants to get in the sea, but the beach can keep him quite happy for a while. He has been loving the new ice cream set and also some dumper trucks I got him for the beach. 

They both seem to play so much better together when they are outside, of course they have their moments and not long after were fighting over a spade but in general they just seem to get along. 

Lastly my baby boy, he was catching some Zzz in his pushchair whilst enjoying some fresh sea air. When he woke up he was having a good look round at all the colourful beach huts.

I just had to include a photo of the sand cream I made! How fab is this haha, I would of loved this as a child.

  1. Oh that beach looks beautiful - I envy anyone who lives close to the beach. I find that whenever we take Athena and Troy to the beach life is just simpler, easier. Parenting is just so nice with sand on your feet x


I read all your comments and will reply when I can :)
