A Family Photo – July 2016

family photo july 2016

This month’s family photo is taken on the beach just over the road from our house. We have enjoyed some lovely weather this month and have headed to the beach a lot – especially in the evenings. I cook Quorn sausages and make hot dogs at home, wrap them in foil and take them down to the beach where we buy chips and sit and eat a makeshift dinner on the beach! If we are lucky we treat ourselves to an ice cream on the way home.

It is such a nice way to spend an evening. A nice lazy dinner which doesn’t cost too much and comes with no washing up! We spend an hour or so down there, making sandcastles, kicking a ball and paddling our toes in the sea before heading home for a nice warm bath and bed. The children always sleep really well because of all the sea air and it is so nice to spend time together as a family.

Next month we are having our kitchen / diner knocked through and will be without a working kitchen for a month! So I’m hoping that the weather stays nice so that we can have lots more picnic dinners on the beach!

I’m linking this up today with Photalife’s My Sunday Photo and Mummy Daddy Me’s Ordinary Moments.
