I’m going to be a bit soppy this week for I must confess. I ran through my mind (I was hella puffed after that) all of the ideas I could think of to pick my one ‘best ever’ moment I couldn’t just pick one. Life is made up of a series of moments and my favourite ones are those spent with my little family.
Devil Papa doesn’t live at The Funny Farm so our time is about quality over quantity. I love spending time with just us. Time where we can do what we want to do with no pressure from anyone else.
Our favourite thing to do is pack up the car with buckets and fishing rods, then head to the beach. We have a beach that we go to regularly, that has a ton of rock pools where we try to find crabs and other sea wildlife. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is, Devil Spawn always gets in the water.
We walk from from one rock formation to another looking in all of the crevices to see what lives inside. Depending on the tides we can sometimes even find fish in some of the deeper pools. DS has a bucket and picks up shells and little trinkets along the way.
Our favourite beach also has every parents dream. A playground with a fence around it. Every playground needs a fence. They are so much less stressful if you have a runner. Fenced parks have made our mums groups much more enjoyable. Anyone who has contact with toddlers knows that once one child does something..the chances of the rest following suit is pretty high.
Once the playing has been done we track down a fish and chip shop and enjoy lunch on the beach. Occasionally we drive to the next town (20km away) and check out the Singing Ship..which unfortunately hasn’t sung since the cyclone in January.
DS is a real water baby and loves the beach, especially if he gets to use his ‘catching rod’. The best part about a trip to the beach is that it tires DS out so we all get to have an early night and get a decent sleep. No sleep dodging after a beach trip!
