“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

We had a really quiet weekend this time round. Kevin was working on Saturday so I decided to take the little out for a haircut and a walk down to the beach.

I am not really a beach person, I hate getting the sand stuck between my toes and finding it still in my shoes two days after my visit. Riley on the other hand loves it, well the whole three times we have been to a beach anyway. We live right by the sea and have access to a beach only 15 minutes away, yet we have never been to this one! We have been to the pebble beach plenty of times (the lack of sand really sells it!) but never the real beach with the sand.

Riley took his little vetch camera with him, this kid loves taking pictures, and of course is also partial to a selfie! When you check to see what he taken pictures of afterwards however, it is usually one of his feet, his forehead, or the ceiling, but occasionally he can take a good picture.

He took his photography role very seriously this weekend however and told me he had to take pictures of every dog he saw. Him running about going “Cheese wee doggie!” sure made a few of the owner’s chuckle.

If there is one thing I would love to instil in Riley it is my love for capturing memories. If he still loves taking photos even half as much as I do as he gets older, I will be a happy mummy!
