Sandcastles


Jack loves the beach, and so do we. So, whilst in Bangor last week, naturally we made sure we went. Although it was the last activity, and it was getting a little cooler, it was the highlight of the trip for Jack. He had been so excited about visiting all day long. He was also excited about finally getting to use his bucket and spade. On the last day of playschool back in June, the teachers threw the kids a great party at the local leisure center. There was a bouncy castles, games, and afterwards they each received a gift. Jack got this bucket and spade. They know him so well!



Face on him. He was probably barging about something, knowing our Jack. What about that robot coat, eh? He gets such a lot of compliments when he wears it. The lovely people at House of Fraser sent this beauty to Jack. It's from the Name It range. Love the colour! What a wonderful surprise- thank you! They also sent Noah this gorgeous blanket from the Baby Elegance range. This blanket is only available in-store though, so you'll have to pop into your local HOF if you fancy one. 

It was Noah's first time at the beach. We reckoned he loved it. There were loads of little gummy smiles. I love these first grins SO MUCH! I'm just soaking them all in. Check out @jackspapermoon on Instagram if you want to see some!



Now, I must shoot on. I've written this post with one hand while breastfeeding one child, and letting the other one stick post-it notes to me and the dog. The studio is a mess. Apologies in advance to my clean-freak husband! Thanks again to the good people at House of Fraser. Toodlepip!

    I haven't been to the beach in ages.
    My dream is to go camping and to the beach.
    Not sure when that will be.

  31. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous- you've made me want to go to the beach just to take some photos of my boys! It looks like you had a wonderful time and I'm glad you managed to post about it. Post-it notes always help me out too. I have to admit I laughed out loud! My six year old was just doing the same thing a couple days ago ;)
