Thought I would share with you some photos I took a couple of weeks ago when we ventured to the seaside on a sunny day in July (one of the few!) We drank elderflower champagne, and our little Orren dipped his toes in the big blue for the very first time. He wasn't sure at first, then didn't seem to mind, he wasn't happy about the small waves crashing and the froth running over his feet and then he realised it was reeeeally cold, and got a bit upset! Bless him.
little toes on the pebbles,
Having a little look,
First little paddle with daddy.
All these new experiences feel so special and I want to capture them all! I didn't even get to have a photo with myself at the beach with him! We both felt so sorry for him when he got upset about the cold, and I desperately wanted to protect him from sunburn, keeping him shaded with a large umbrella and lots of blankets and muslins. I was so focused on protecting his beautiful white skin that I totally forgot to protect my own! Very bad sunburn ensued. So bad that I had to fill the bath with cold water and kneel in it in the middle of the night! Wear sunscreen folks!
