Beach Fun & Puddle Jumping

I love being by the sea. There’s something very calming about it, and it always makes the day to day worries and stresses seem a million miles away.

Last weekend we took O to spend a few days at the beach in North Wales. The weather was a bit on the ropey side. Lots of wind and rain but on the Sunday late afternoon the sun came out and we headed outside.


It was great being by the sea and O loved spotting the birds and the boats and making his footprints in the sand. As it had been raining there were lots of puddles around, perfect for jumping in! As long as your wearing your boots!


My little man had a fantastic time splashing and I love how at 2 years old there’s nothing better than sticking your wellies on and jumping up and down in (not very muddy) puddles. I love the innocence of it and me and his dad may have joined in a bit too!

    You are so right about being two. Its fun to pick up your feet and watch what happens when you put them down. Red wellies just make it even more fun. #CountryKids

      My little man would agree, he jumped in a huge puddle just as we were heading out for dinner. Change of clothes needed! x

    My son’s fave activity too. He does this and would usually get wet cuz he jumps on the puddle even w/o wellies =P #countrykids

      Yep, my boy does the same, jumps in puddles regardless of whether wellies are on or not. Best to keep them close to hand in case of any puddle jumping possibilities xx

    I adore O’s little rain mac – Noah had an identical one at one point! So sweet! And I don’t think we ever grow out of puddle jumping, do we? That and crunching in Autumn leaves 🙂 Gorgeous pics Jo xxx

      It’s adorable isn’t it? I bought one for my nephew for his birthday and had to go back and get one for O.
      Thanks for the pics comment, you inspired me to download A Beautiful Mess and have had great fun playing around with it xx

    Aww there’s nothing better than being 2 in wellies! My nearly 2 yr old insists on wearing his everywhere! I love the yellow coat too! #countrykids

    Ahh lovely fun shots!
    I sometimes think the beach is even better when its not hot and sunny, you get more of it to yourself and it seems a bit more magical somehow xx

      I love being on the beach on a cold and windy day, especially as you are usually the only ones there! So peaceful in a way x
