At the start of the school summer holidays we asked the boys what would their one special wish each be. Joel immediately asked if we could go and play on Gordon's Bay beach at sunset and eat fish and chips! Well, it has taken us almost 7 weeks, but tonight his wish was our command.... and we had a ton of fun. It was a beautiful, warm, not windy late afternoon/evening and, as you can see, the beach was almost deserted - yay!!
The sea was warm and the fish and chips were yummy. We pledged to try and come down to the beach at this time of day more regularly as the boys had such a ball - Joel even in his plaster cast. Eli is like a mad man let loose on the beach! He absolutely loves it and dive bombs the sea and throws himself in the sand, rolling around and somersaulting. We're sure he thinks he is a dog!
Family times like this are to be treasured and held on to as we know the weeks ahead will be busier than ever as life returns to 'normal' work and school routine.
