I just love that some weekends, rather than working, I get to play. And other weekends I get to combine the two.
Like this weekend, when today I got to hang out with my little man who is growing up so fast!
And just to make it even better, the weather was stunning. Summer is coming! I even have a little sunburn to prove it!
We went out to Seaview and visited Grandad's boat so I could take some photos of it, he just loves going out there although he scared the life out of me with his utter fearlessness around the water. He was so happy to lean out over the water to reach the boat, while the mummy in me was having a minor panic attack with visions of having to fish him out of the sea dancing before my eyes!
Thankfully baseless as he was fine, but gosh! Scare me much?
After that we went somewhere I could relax a little and we hung out at the park on the foreshore, then wandered up over to the beach where we explored the sand... made rock mountains... discovered magic crystal rocks to add to his Lego Power Miners cave at home.... learned about shells and sea creatures and played chasing games on the sand.
It never ceases to amaze me how much more you look around you at the little things, when you have a little person's eyes to look through. So much he sees that adults just don't think about anymore. We have fascinating conversations and laugh a lot. I always feel so blessed on days like today!
I love knowing that warmer seasons are upon us and I loved too that I now have another beautiful spot in my head for portraits. As that area is just beautiful. So much gorgeous backdrop and with weather like today, I will be putting this spot on my list of amazing places to go as Mr 4 has given me so much inspiration today.
