An Afternoon at the Beach with Diggers & Dumper Trucks
Yey its Friday… which means, as monkey has taken to calling it over the last month or so ‘Fun Friday’. I had already mentioned earlier in the week about going to the beach and completely underestimated the excitement this idea would cause.
So even though the weather wasn’t fantastic we ventured out heading to West Wittering beach with some friends. We braved the wind and had fun with diggers, filling them up with pebbles, shells, sand and sea. It always amazes me how they love to repeat the same actions over and over again!
They also liked to follow each other around and West Wittering was ideal for this due to the large expanse of flat sand… There were no rock pools where we were today but, we did find washed up seaweed and a crab. They boys weren’t really sure what to make of the latter! However the seaweed proved valuable cargo for the dumper truck.
It was hilarious watching them run away from the sea. Monkey learnt a valuable lesson when he got stuck in the sand. A hole had been dug by his little friend (his best friend – new concept!) and it filled with water as the tide came in. Insisting on jumping in and out of the hole monkey suddenly found his wellies stuck fast! After a quick unsticking (and a few panicked tears), quick sand entered into their imaginative play.
Needless to say by the time we got home monkey (and mummy) were completely worn out!! Mission accomplished. How I love my Fridays xxx
