Mothers Day


a day trip to mum and dads at the beach.
the weather was cold and we sat around their large table enjoying lunch together.
as we finished the clouds parted and we managed to get outside, down the beach for a play.
there was running races, walks along the pier, drawing in the sand, hopscotch and lots of laughs.
Happy Mothers Day
