We are well in the throws of Summer now and we are really enjoying (almost) every minute. I don’t remember a time the weather was so nice, and I am loving the long days in the sunshine. Mads and LL seem to thrive on being outside and active, and I could happily stay in the sun all day. We have been enjoying picnics, playground trips, and days in the garden with friends- so much less stressful than our Winter pasttime of soft play. I have been organised again this month and have a few photos of my sister’s all ready to share.
Last weekend we went to South West Wales on our first camping adventure. It was a lot of fun and Mads and LL relished the quality time with us. We have been switching off a lot this Summer- away from TV screens, phones and constant checking of social media, and it’s been very welcome indeed.
On one of the day’s in Wales we went to a local beach. We had already had a busy day at a theme park and lunch at Pizza Express (my fussy children would lick their plates clean at Pizza Express so we go there a lot!) but didn’t feel it was right to go to the coast and not go to the beach, so we made our way over there late in the afternoon. I am so glad we did because it was so quiet and peaceful. We built sandcastles, ate our pretty sandy sandwiches on a picnic blanket, and enjoyed feeling the sun on our shoulders. We also found some sand dunes and the girl’s had lots of fun sliding down them on their bottoms, they were giggling in delight.
I love these photos, firstly because they are a memory of a pretty special weekend, but also because my little ladies just look really happy, and at the end of the day isn’t that ultimately what any parent wants for their children? They make us laugh every single day with their antics, and are the best of friends yet also fight like cat and dog. Their relationship is really beginning to shine through and they are fast becoming a real double act, egging each other on all.the.time. We went to buy a bathroom suite the other day and they were running up and down the showroom being so mischevious together. I look at these photos and my heart aches a little bit with pride and love for my two lovely daughters.
This month I am sending you over to have a look at Chloe’s lovely blog. She has just won a trip of a lifetime to California which I did a little jump of joy for when I heard because I was really rooting for her and totally deserved it with her video she made. Go and have a look at her gorgeous boys.
