Our beautiful middle guy turned eleven yesterday.
E L E V E N !
It was a very big, and very happy day, of going to the movies in town with some friends, timezone fun, dodgeball in the backyard, cake and, in keeping with tradition...a sunset walk.
It was sooo cold, we could see our breath in the still, icy air.
We wandered, marvelled at a lone surfer braving the arctic water, and we watched the enormous waves crash in with such effortless force.
There was some shell collecting and dune climbing.
There was a dash to rescue the baby girl from being dumped by an unexpected wave, and there was the filling of sea water into my boots because I was not quite quick enough to save us both!
The colours were beautifully pastel and serene before the darkness swiftly moved in.
We went home with cold faces and pink cheeks to warm showers, and birthday fish 'n chips, and we curled up on the couch for movie night.
All a little bit perfect really.
Happy Birthday darling James! We're so glad you had the best day x
