Brendon has this week off. It's great having the 1st and 2nd as public holidays as it means he only has to take 3 days leave to have a whole week off.
Rachel and Daniel headed down to join his family for a picnic lunch before heading to the beach. We had lunch at home and joined them a bit later.
The beach was chosen for sentimental reasons - not swimming, so no one minded. It was still loads of fun.
We had a bit of a problem with her throwing the stones, so it was good we had her bucket with to give her something specific to do. A bit later Brendon did allow her to throw, when it was a specific game they were playing - with no one in front of them. It looked so special. Brendon, Asher and Philip (who was having great conversation with Brendon) all sat throwing. It would have made a lovely photo - but I missed it.
They did come out at one point to warm up, but it wasn't long before they headed back again. Such wonderful memories made today.
I'm so glad we got to enjoy the day with the Sampson family. It was such a lovely afternoon of fellowship and fun.
A fun end to a very fun filled day.
