Pink skies like butterflies

This other evening was just so humid that we were all feeling a bit hot and irritable!   The idea of tackling the bedtime routine just seemed like climbing a mountain in 40 degree heat!  So we decided to break all the rules and head down to the beach at bed time ......... on a school night!!

 There was a slight breeze down there which was just heavenly and the skies were just the most amazing array of pinks and purples.  "Pink skies like butterflies mummy" Miss H said!

As the kids were all in their pj's the plan was to just go out for a little walk, but the evening was so beautiful we all kicked off our shoes and ran through the sand right down to the waters edge.  It was just one of those random, unplanned moments where you can't help but look around and realise just how incredible life is.

There is nothing better than hearing the sound of your kids laughing!  Running on the beach and splashing in the waves is probably not the most sensible thing to do on a school night.   However, I'm now sitting at my desk smiling - the kids are in bed asleep and I'm wondering to myself why we don't do this sort of thing more often!!
