Our local beach

We love driving the 5-10 minutes it takes to get to our local beach for a walk and a play and we try to do it as often as possible.

Sometimes we get some chips to share from the cafe, but today we just enjoyed being outside after a few weeks of being trapped in the house with sick kids.

It was warm and sunny today (well we still needed jumpers, but relatively warm!) after lots of rain and cold weather here lately, so we just had to get out of the house this morning as soon as we saw the sunshine.

We all had a great time, and everything was so beautiful!

Oliver is "shivering me" as Charlotte would say (making me nervous by standing too close to the edge!)

Home again, home again jiggity jog...
