A fun packed summer has come to an end. We've tried to make the most of it, even with a return to school. Before Labor Day I managed to squeeze in an after school visit to the beach with some friends... Hatts showing off her new hat!
Running into neighborhood friends.
Lapping up the sun.
And then on the holiday weekend we took the boys to the train station. Before it opened we headed along the promenade for a scoot.
And then - choo choo - off we go again.
These lovely children - all so tired here - but managing to be so sweet and lovely.
We also managed a quick visit to OOB - for a dip in the sea and some ride on the fairground.
A final evening riding on the boys' favorites.
Charlie's new boogie board (his original was stolen at OOB), as we met some friends for a beach play date. The weather was amazing.
Raf was poorly the first couple of days of school last week, but we did manage to sneak in another after school beach afternoon.
Even Rich joined us for an hour or so after work.
Hatts feeling the water on her little toes for the first time.
and the sand, too.
Hoping this wasn't our last warm trip to the beach. A brilliant time this summer... already counting down the days until next summer ;)
