The Simple Things ~ A Family Walk
This Easter Sunday we decided to head out on a walk, whilst nothing terribly exciting, it was lovely to get out on such a gorgeous Spring day.
As with most days, this one started at the beach, although you can’t really see his face, this photo of Ahren really amazed me, he looks like such a boy, so far removed from my baby!
The boys have this inability to actually walk, they must run everywhere.
They run, stop, run back to us then run forwards again before repeating the whole stop and return process.
Doing this they get pretty tired, and today was no different, thankfully there was a rather handy bench for an impromptu rest.
Ahren embraced his inner Bear Grylls and took to the woods to do whatever it is boys do in the woods.
We eventually ended up close to Holy Well, a favourite place of the boys where they get to climb rocks and explore what the tides leave behind.
I love seeing how they tackle these rocks, umming and ahhhing over which way to go.
There is always lots of sliding down rocks on bums and yelling for mama and daddy to make them “fly” to the next rock when the gap is too big to jump.
A moment of reflection….maybe.
He looks so tiny.
Obviously making a tough decision as to which way to go.
I love that there is always so much to discover here, without even realising it the boys learn about a whole bunch of things, from coastal erosion to the fierce determination of coastal flora to thrive.
They also get to see how you can get creative with the most simple of things.
Sadly we’d misjudged the time and the tide was coming in fast so we had to head back much earlier than we’d have liked.
All in all it was a perfectly lovely day out for us all, topped off with a scrummy yummy roast dinner.
So glad the weather seems to be turning warmer and sunnier, we’re planning lots of trips out for our weekends.
