Summer is here!

The summer is here and school is broken up. Of course that makes little difference to me since Michael is a toddler. However we do make some great use of the sun(when we have it!)

The park is great for all children. I am lucky that I have a really good park just 5 minutes away. It has a pond with ducks, a great playground on sand, splash zone and cafe. So needless to say, we spend a lot of time there. Michael loves feeding the ducks(one of his few words) and finding squirrels. A picnic means we can spend a good couple of hours there.

Swimming also is another great summer activity. Again luck mean I live in walking distance to a newly built leisure centre with two swimming pools, gym and play area. I think swimming is a key skill and Michael has taken lessons since he was 3 months old. He really does love it.

Visiting the beach is a little harder for us but it is only around 40 minutes on the train. We try to go at least once in the summer and make a day of it. It does not have to be expensive. Take a picnic with you and your bucket and spade and you have a great day. 

What activities do you plan for the summer?
