Packed the baskets full of campfire essentials and headed off to enjoy some family time in the warm evening sun.
Leaping off rocks, balancing on logs, beach collections, dashing into the sea, screaming to let the cold out.
And then the campfire, smoky, crackling, sizzling hot dogs. Warming us as the chill starts to linger.
And s'mores, lots and lots of s'mores.
Teaching the littles the art of roasting a marshmallow to golden brown. No patience for it yet. A quick charring and they're done.
Happily stuffing their mouths and on to the next one.
As the sun was setting we bundled up the littles and headed for home and a peaceful sleep, no doubt full of mermaids and pirates.
