Our days have been spent outdoors as much as possible, with plenty of mornings at the beach, picnics at lunch time and afternoons in the park.

One evening we met a local photographer down at the local beach, and she took some lovely photos of our little family, capturing us now. My not so little toddler who is excited and ready for new adventures. My slightly crazy 17 month old, who would spend all day in the sea and loves to roar, and the bloke and I, enjoying the best side of the place where we grew up, and where we are bringing up our family.
