I was excited at the idea of fresh air and sunshine whilst the girls were happy about the prospect of ice cream, either way it was going to be a good day for all.
This was actually the first time that I'd taken all four kids out by myself without putting Layla in a pushchair. So with sunglasses and Goldbug reins at the ready we set out to walk down the seafront.
It didn't take as long as I thought to make it down there, although I did end up carrying little legs for part of the distance.
However once down there the wind took over from where the sun began, it was shall we say a tad blustery, this didn't deter us though.
You can see from the smiles below.
After ice cream came the pebbles.
Layla gained herself freedom to run for a while.
Freya and Gracie were having fun throwing pebbles in the water, like they're mother, they do not have the skill for skimming.
And Elise was busy building rock castles.
We finished off our outing with a look out to sea.
Oh we do like to be beside the seaside, oh we do like to be beside the sea, sun and wind.
