Recently on our holiday we decided to go to the beach in minehead for few hours, it was beautifully warm and I thought it would be lovely for a spring day. It took me a while to pursuance Asti to come along and not Play football all day. I went to the little shop and brought yet more buckets and spades and badminton set for Asti. I packed a drink and off we set, my hubby was busy so it was just me and the three little monkeys.
We get to the beach after me pushing the heavy double and off the run all three in different directions, Asti wanting to climb the rocks, Ami wanting to dig and son son wanting to go anywhere but where we were. The sun was blazing and I felt a bit bad as had no sun cream had to not sit too near other parents who were lathering it on there kids. I didn't plan to be outside too much so the sun police will let me go (hopefully).
The first half hour I felt like I was just calling the kids getting them to come back, stop throwing sand and trying to break other children's sand castle. Then they calmed down and started to play together burying Asti and digging holes. Me and Asti played badminton or what Ami calls it bativ and also a bit if volleyball. It was so much fun and such a warm day, It's hard to find things that entertain all ghee but the beach always is a lot of fun and free. Just means have to clean son sons face of sand where he gets it all round his chops. It dawned on me it was my first time on my own on the beach with the three of them walking and exploring. This spring summer is going to be fun along with challenging. Loving the sunshine hope it sticks around till October now!
We finished our time on the beach at emptied the shoes of sand. We found sand for days after but I do not mind it reminds me of our good adventures.
Here's some more pictures of our beach time, I do love the beach.
Beautiful photos Sara. I haven't been to a sandy beach in a long time and never to Minehead, its looks very nice there. Your sons look like they are all having lovely day out with their mummy. Don't stress about the suncream, Its hard getting everything prepared sometimes, thankfully they were all okay afterwards.ReplyDelete
