Don’t forget how much you love the beach!

I’ve written a few times recently about our trips to the beach here in Swansea and on the Gower, and how much both my children absolutely love it.

We were there again yesterday, enjoying the sunshine and the sea air.

And as I watched my children run around, and dig in the sand (covering themselves in the process), with huge smiles on their faces, I thought of this quote:

“Don’t grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach”

Don't grow up too quickly quote 

I think every parent wishes time would slow down every now and then; none of us want our children to grow up too fast, and I love this quote’s spin on that idea.

At the moment Rhys and Nerys get so much excitement and joy from going to the beach, I hope they never grow out of that!

    What a lovely little quote. They do grow up so quickly and sometimes it really tugs at my heart strings when I think about it… But living in the moment and enjoying playing at the beach is the best way to deal with it 🙂

      Haha, yep, we’re just going to keep on playing and ignore the growing up part for now! x

      I do love that my children are fans of the beach, and that we get to take them to beaches that their Dad visited as a child, there’s something special about that! x

    I have the same thoughts. It’ great to see the joy & excitement in our children’s eyes when we go to the beach or the park or some place fun for them! We enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine at the beach over the weekend. It’s a really lovely memory to have! I hope we get to do it again this summer if the sun comes back! Thanks so much for sharing with #candidcuddles xx

      Haha, I love the suggestion in your comment that you might not get any more sun now in Ireland! x
