A little adventure out to Sandgate which is about 40 minutes drive from home.
James and Sienna couldn't wait to get down onto the sand and start exploring.
Look over here, and here they were so excited.
Is that a fish.
Crab holes in the sand.
Getting outdoors is great.
Family portrait at Sandgate, 2 girls 1 boy as you can tell from the bright nail polish.
I loved looking at the textures and patterns in the sand.
So pleased we went even though it was raining when we left home.
Lots of jellyfish to discover.
They were so interested in showing each other what shells they had found.
This one is happy to pose for photos any time.
Beautiful shells with creatures inside them.
More shells Mum.
Sienna is filling her pockets with as many shells as she can.
We found lots of interesting things on the beach.
Listening to the wind.
One pink little girl on a very grey day at the beach.
They were so happy I took them to the beach to explore.
A bit of writing James did for me in the sand.
Famous little church at Sandgate in the background and James and Sienna exploring in the foreground.
Trying to take a photo of ourselves holding my heavy camera away from us was proving difficult.
Same again, not flattering photos of me but it's about the fun of it and the kids have a silly photo with their Mum.
Another family portrait with the self timer and at this stage it had actually started to rain so we were trying to hurry so the camera didn't get too wet.
