I do have a toddler who is determined to not only wear socks with his sandals, but to keep them on all day at the beach as well. Dylan was not giving them up easily!
Midweek in June we are guaranteed to have the beach almost to ourselves and Dylan took the opportunity to explore. I let him go further whilst it was quiet and he brought back shells and stones from every expedition.
A morning at the beach not only leaves them smiling, it means that nap time begins the moment they are back in the pushchair as it tires them out. On Fridays I have extra children to look after and so Dylan has his nap in my bed.
This might be my first beach post of the summer but it certainly won't be my last. I haven't braved taking my big camera down yet as the sand gets everywhere,
