We took a trip to the beach (Or coast as they call it here?) this week. Despite skipping naps and taking what felt like a survivalist amount of things it was one of the most relaxing afternoons we have had in a long time. It was chilly and windy so it took the boys a while to get use to it, so in that respect I was happy we took our tent since we were able to bring them inside and have lunch until they were ready to explore. It wasn't long until they were digging in the sand and W was trying to eat it. It was the sweetest thing to watch him crawl around in the sand. He would get so excited trying to grab it that he would plop on his belly and make little sand angels and laugh.
I was so excited to get this day to spend together as a family. Husband and I have been pretty busy the last month and it is so easy to get caught up in the grind and stay in the same routine. It is alway nice to leave all that behind for even a few hours and just soak up these moments as a family.
