It's time to reflect back on our month that was August 2016. A month where we had a big milestone for our little family - we went on our first holiday abroad together as a family of four to the lovely Torremolinos in Spain. I've written all about it here, so do pop over for a read if you think it's a place you might want to visit with your own loved ones.
I hope all these family holidays will instill a sense of wanderlust in my boys, making them want to explore the world around them throughout their lives. I'm already anticipating another holiday or break away, it was so good to get away from home and I really wish we could get away more often.
In August we also discovered a beautiful sunflower field at the back of our island and couldn't help stopping by there twice to take some pictures. I captured some beautiful pictures of the boys there together, which I used for their siblings in August post.
Our little Beau turned three months old in August and I don't think any of us can quite believe how quickly he's growing up. I don't think I'm ready for him to turn four months old this month, it seems as though I've blinked and my newborn has disappeared!
We didn't have as many days out as I'd have liked during August. I still haven't made it to The Burren or Co. Kerry so I guess that'll all have to be put off until next summer. We've been trying to get Tyler ready for back to school as he begins Naíonra on Thursday. We've been struggling to get him fully potty trained - he's actually afraid of the toilet it seems. We've also been trying to teach him to ride his bike and trike, but he hates been shown how to do things so has been walking along whilst sitting on them - hilarious! Hopefully he'll learn soon and can go cycling to his hearts content.
Goodbye August, you brought so many wonderful memories for our family. September, please be good to us...
