Life seems suddenly great today. This may have something to do with the sun being out and it feels dare I say it like spring. There has been a spring in both our steps today and we took the opportunity to get down to the aquarium and the beach. It's amazing what a bit of sun will do for your morale. The local aquarium runs a good offer called Toddler Tuesday, where they charge significantly less than what they normally do. And what they normally charge is insanely expensive. So taking advantage of the the cheap prices seemed like good economics. Included in the price is the most useful thing of all a free cup of coffee.
After we had seen sharks, lobsters and more primary school children than we really wanted to we nipped over the road to the beach and the wee man dashed off to chase any dog he could find. I had intended to have a nice picnic on the beach but forgot useful things like spoons and water. So I had to fashion cutlery out of whatever I could find. The wee man was obviously not impressed by this and took to eating shells and rocks. He obviously had too much fun as he collapsed with exhaustion soon after and had to be brought home. Hooray for the sun.
