People who follow me on Instagram might have already read about our little adventure yesterday. It was such a lovely day that I thought it deserves a post on its own.
After showers the whole week, the weather finally picked up at the weekend and we got some sunshine and warm temperature ranging up to 25 degrees. The West part of Ireland deserves a bit of summer after all.
We started Sunday morning as relaxed as normal. Quite often lately, the kids like having a lie in. We actually didn’t get up until just after 8 o’clock. We enjoyed our usual family breakfast which contains of toast, ready brek and cereal. Hubby then had the spontaneous idea to go for a walk on the beach because it was still early in the morning. It means it’s not as busy and hot. Matthew is never going to say “no” to a stroll on the beach. He absolutely loves it. He would live on the beach if he could.
So off we went shortly after breakfast to our local beach in Rosses Point. We are lucky enough, to live close to 2 beaches at the Atlantic Ocean. It was only a 10 minute drive.
Once parked at the beach, I got the stroller out to put Chloe and along we went down to the beach. Matthew was super excited. So much space to run around and go wild. He loved playing with the sand and throwing stones into the ocean. Poor Chloe couldn’t play along just yet, but she loved watching her big brother. Yet he still made time to push his little sister around the beach “super fast“.
While hubby pushed Chloe, I took some photos of Matthew going mad in the sand in the dunes. He pretended to be stuck with his arms in the sand. Crawling around in the sand, throwing it up in the air, getting it stuck in his hair. Whatever keeps him happy. It’s lovely to see him having so much fun with just a bit of sand.
When we were in the car, I had a leaflet laying on my back seat in the car from Supermacs. Matthew looked at it and basically made out the whole plan what himself, daddy, mammy and Chloe will have. We couldn’t disappoint him and because it was lunch time anyway, we decided to drive to Supermacs which was on our way anyway.
In the afternoon, I drove up to Smyths and got 2 more bags of sand for our sandpit in the garden. Yup, more sand after the adventurous morning at the beach. The sun was just gone passed the sandpit so it made it nice and cool for them to play in it building sand castles, for example.
We are promised a few more days of heat and sunshine. I hope it will last until the coming weekend. Even though I will be busy starting to pack for our big family summer holiday to Spain in two weeks. I want to make it perfect and pack well in advanced so I don’t forget anything. The most thing I hate, is being unorganised.
You might have also noticed that I have changed my blog theme. I would love to know what you think of it. So far I am quite impressed with it and it seems to be so more visible and cleaner to navigate around. I hope you get the same experience.
