The best weekend // part one

Last weekend was my most favourite in a long time.

On Saturday the three of us spent the afternoon by the sea at Sebastian's mama's house with his grandparents. Olive was in her element. She has an obsession with her Grammy's cats, and their feathery, mouse shaped toys so every time she spotted one she would squeal with excitement.
After a cup of tea and a long catch up with each other we took Olive out for a walk along the seafront. And by 'walk' what I really mean is run!

Olive is such an explorer and can't go past a pile of 'stones' without picking them all up and selecting two (one for each hand) to keep. The sun was warm upon our cheeks and the wind was perfectly cool giving it the perfect weather combination. We wandered across the pebbled beach and collected a handful of shells and more 'stones' for Olive's personal collection.
Sebastian and Olive stopped at the soft rippling of the sea and threw pebbles into it. It was one of those magical moments that I had always imagined and hoped for for my future family. My heart is full.
Olive found a patch of sand, which took her attention for quite some time. I love watching her discover new things and taking it all in. Writing in the sand is actually pretty spectacular isn't it!?

We spotted boats, pastel beach huts, helicopters and scruffy dogs along the way, not to mention the handsome horse galloping back and forth which O was enamoured with. The moment we realised we walked up an appetite we hurried back for dinner; sausages, mash and beans. Followed by ice cream. It was the perfect end to a wonderful day.

This was the best Saturday in such a long time. Spending time with my tiny family is my most favourite thing to do. Especially when it involves exploring, happy faces, good food and making memories. All thanks to MrTTDER for capturing some of these for us.
The best weekend was completed with the best Sunday. But more of that to come.

What's your idea of a perfect Saturday?


  1. What a lovely, little family. Will you be blogging about your recent Berlin trip at all? I'm planning a trip in January and am trying to garner as many hints and tips from my favourite bloggers as possible.

  2. What a beautiful picture you have conjured. Some of my favourite memories ever are from beach trips with my family and I still adore any coastline I get to spend time around! Alice xxx
