We visited Instow
which is about 7 miles from home. Upon arriving there the sun (and blue sky) was hidden behind grey misty clouds, not that this stopped Burton from wanting to paddle in the sea.
Within a few minutes he had fallen over and got wet - before I had managed to put his swimsuit on!
Once he was inside his swimsuit he got down to the important task of building a sandcastle - oh what fun he had digging up the sand,oh and covering himself in it of course!
With a bit of help from grandma here is his first ever sandcastle :)
Jenson watched for a bit from the comfort of his buggy until he got fidgety and needed feeding!
Once the sun came out it was lovely and warm with a cooling sea breeze and Burton just loved playing on the beach
We drew sand pictures too and he liked making sand angels and jumping in sand pools!
And we jumped on our shadows - here is mine
Grandma (OH's Mum) had a rest with Jenson so I could play with Burton for an hour, as I had spent most of our time there nursing and trying to get Jenson to sleep (to no avail I hasten to add!)
It was such fun and Burton looked like a mini sand monster by the end of our little adventure - he must have taken enough sand home with us to fill a sandpit! He was covered - I would have hated it but he just laughed!! Oh to be a toddler :)
