My kids are so much like me as a child, that spirt to explore and also the ability to make anything messy. I say as a child my husband would disagree and say I am an messy adult too. The other day o thought let's walk to the beach and the children could collect some shells. Amelie wanted to take her bike and off we set.
It was a sunny day but it did have a slight chill in the air, I was cold but then I usually am. I didn't think practically and put the children in some of there better clothes. Big mistake thankfully everything came out in the wash in the end;
Bearing in mind it wasn't a warm day they were in there element running through he water son son kept on falling over in the water too, he was completely drenched. They did have a lot of fun there welly boots were full of water and must have been heavy to walk in.
Thankfully we only lives few minutes away from this beach so it wasn't to bad for the children to walk home. They were both soaked from head to foot in sand and water. So I stripped them of and chucked them straight in the bath. Killed a morning and got us out the house.
