What better after a busy day at school than a play on the park and a quick walk along the beach? Ice creams all round? Yeh – that would have been even better, only the beach cafe happened to be shut that afternoon, much to my children’s disappointment.
I’ve said it time and time again but we are so lucky to live where we do, the beach only a stones throw away – it makes for the perfect place to visit at the end of the day, somewhere to wind down before heading home.
I would once have to run around after the kids, helping them to climb up random obstacles whereas these days I’m more of an observer, they no longer require Mummy to run around after them, they keep each other entertained – J has even mastered the art of getting both his sister and himself onto the zip wire which is both sweet and rather scary to watch.
We may have swings, slides and a trampoline at home but the park still beats our back garden, there’s nothing quite like climbing the slide whilst looking out over the bay, at five or nine years old, it must feel as if you truly are king of the castle.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
