Winter beach day

We met our friends Molly and Jerimiah and their kids Milo and Naomi for lunch and a play on the beach. A rakaia 2 Finally time to roast marshmallows! Note to self- hide marshmallows until it is time to roast them and therefore avoid hearing “Is it time for marshmallows yet?” x200A rakaia 3 Not a day for a swim! The waves were fierce!

A rakaia 4Yikes, Isla almost went in. Maybe next time she will take us seriously when we tell her to stay back, although probably not!
A rakaia 5 Eben and one of his favorite girlfriends, Naomi. A rakaia 6 A rakaia 7 I love you too Isla!

A rakaia 12The beginnings of the hut, everyone hard at work. A rakaia 8 The kids enjoying the hut they made. A rakaia 9 A rakaiaEben loves marshmallows!

A rakaia 11Abel was there too but not his usual self. He was feeling a bit unwell, poor wee guy. He perked up briefly to help with hut building but mainly just wanted to sit on my knee  (or cling to my leg as in this photo). Hopefully a good sleep tonight and he will feel better.

A rakaia 10Isla and I collected some rocks while we were there and did some rock painting when we got home.

Back to school tomorrow, fingers crossed Abel bounces out of bed tomorrow morning.
