What’s The Story? Magic Moments – Holiday Snaps

Beach fun sandbanks

I absolutely love this photo.

It was taken whilst on holiday in Poole, Dorset in 2010, on Sandbanks beach.

What I love about this photo is that it shows my boy who is now my Teen, when he was 11 years old. He enjoyed this holiday so much. It was the August before he started high school and he was still my little boy, my baby!! I loved him at this age, still do of course, but this was before all the changes that go hand in hand with high school, teenage years and growing up.

He loved being with his Mummy at this age. He was old enough to be able to have lovely conversations with, yet still young enough to want cuddles, play with his siblings and be happy to be at home with his family. He was still a child!

I miss him being like this.

The photo also shows my gorgeous little girl who at this point had just had her 5th birthday. She was glued to me all the time when she was small, she wouldn’t do anything without me! Bless her.

We had such a fun, happy time at this beach that day, giggling all the time. Sandbanks beach is truly beautiful. We were making the most of it though as it was the only day really that the sun shone in the whole week we were down on the South coast. The weather had been great leading up to the holiday but changed and rained practically every single day we were away. Typical!

My twins were gorgeous little babies too at this point in time:

God, I’d love to give them a squeeze right now looking at this!

My children are growing up too fast. I know I’ve said it before but I really would like time to slow down a bit please!

Here are a few more pics from that holiday….
