The weather this week has been glorious and after finishing work on Friday I felt we had to do something with our evening to make the most of it. When the hubster came home we hatched a plan to visit one of the beaches that we hadn’t been to for such a long time and stop at a pub for a drink in the beer garden
We used to go out pretty much every evening in the summer months but since J came along we don’t really do it very often, instead settling on routine and early nights. J got very excited about throwing stones in the water and the ball for Lexi and we casually strolled to the pub, sitting and watching the girls play by the water and enjoying the sun beaming down on us
Every time Lexi shook J ran off laughing and saying ‘Lexi stop shaking next to me’ which was really funny to watch – they really are the best of friends. Lexi gave us a classic moment as we were walking past the beach huts as she decided to shake right next to an elderly lady who was painting outside her one (!) Thankfully she took it in good humour but we were so embarrassed!
We ended up having dinner at the pub looking out to the water, J made a friend and they ran round the garden while we looked on before heading back and stopping for a couple of photos as the sun was starting to go down, giving us all that lovely sunny glow
J actually took a beautiful photo of me, Lexi and the hubster in the sun and I think I’ll be framing it and I think I have competition on my hands with my little photographer! I also took quite possibly one of my favourite photos of J and Lexi on the way back to the car, J was burying Lexi’s ball while she looked on patiently. I adore their dog and owner bond so much
It was just one of those evenings where it all worked perfectly, we kept saying how happy we were, how thankful we were watching Lexi and J play by the water and we’ve vowed to do it more often, we really do take this beautiful area we live in for granted.
