The May bank holidays are very often hit or miss with the weather and I was so relieved to see the sun shining brightly over the recent weekend. The bloke spent four days in Brussels and so the littles and I spent lots of time with their Grandma, Grandpa, Aunty and Uncle. I always think of bank holidays as being about family time and this one was no exception.Read more ⇨
We are incredibly lucky to live so close to the beach and after a quick pop to the shops and lunch in the garden we headed down to the seaside for sandcastles, shell sorting and sunbathing. My parents have jumped straight into their role as grandparents and seem in their element playing with the boys. They have so much time and love to give them, I just love to watch them together. With Dylan's ever improving vocabulary, he is so much fun and he absolutely adores his 'Manma' and 'Bumpa'. Archie is still small but has enough cuddles for everyone.
|You're so funny Grandma!|
Archie had special smiles for the special people in his life and the sea air definitely did him good as we had the best night's sleep after our day outdoors. Dylan also managed a glorious lie in on Tuesday morning which was much appreciated by all!
After a busy afternoon building sandcastles, collecting shells which were then washed and sorted, exploring, chatting, playing, snoozing, sunbathing, walking and laughing, we sat outside our beach hut for a good old fish and chips tea. I took home two very exhausted boys and I can't say I had much more energy myself. A beautiful bank holiday spent with some very beautiful people.
The boys were sent some clothes from Debenham's Childrenswear which they are wearing, Archie was in a gorgeous romper and Dylan in some lovely sail boat shorts. I love the nautical theme and they were the perfect outfits for our beach day.
