Get Outside and Play

Have I mentioned summer is my favourite time of year (just a few times right?)  There isn’t a day that goes by in Fall, Winter and Spring that I am wishing for summer (on a personal note, I should move to Mexico where it’s nice all year round).  I love the sunshine beating down on my face, I love  the sound of flip flops as I walk along, I love summer dresses, I love sand in my bathing suit – ok that’s a bit much, but you get the idea.  Princess Outside is a summer lover too!  She always wants to be in the front cul-de-sac playing with her friends or on her own, it doesn’t seem to matter.

Here are some of our favourite outdoor/summer activities:

  • bikes
  • scooters
  • baseball
  • soccer
  • chalk
  • swimming
  • playground
  • water balloons

There’s a large bike gang that hangs outside of front door nearly every evening.  It consists of 3-6 year old riding around the street.  They come in all shapes and sizes, trikes, balance bikes, training wheels and two wheel bikes.  It’s an amazing phenomenon to watch the kids graduate to the next level of bike and all of a sudden they are riding a two wheeler.  The parents cheer and the kids are incredibly proud of themselves.  The kids help each other and yell “Car” when someone makes they way to the end of this kid friendly street.  The kids love it, the parents love it, it’s great to be outside for the summer.

Seeing as it’s summer time, you may notice that I am not online quite as much or posting as often.  That’s because we are busy doing outdoor things, enjoying the warm weather, swimming, hanging with friends or just riding bikes outside.  (We also have a number of weddings and events happening this summer).

Enjoy your summer everyone.  It only comes but once a year and in my personal opinion – it’s WAY too short!
