It seems like the summer is flying by and we haven’t done much yet at all, well we are in the midst of potty training and that is a pretty big achievement so I’m happy with that! Looking back over the Summer Staycation post I can see so much that we’ve yet to do but I have a lot planned for the next few weeks (keeping our fingers crossed for good weather) so I’m sure we will catch up.
We have managed to visit a couple of places we have never been before as a family; we took Lucas to see Sooty Live at The Lowry and we visited Calderstones Park and Court Hey Park both quite close to us; we haven’t had ice cream from an ice cream van but we did get some from an ice cream hut so I’m going to count that. We have taken out plenty of picnics and eaten one in the house when the rain was too much. We’ve found a couple of new playgrounds and baked banana bread and blueberry muffins.
I feel like this year I’m very aware that we are doing things that will make up Lucas’ first memories and I want to make it a fun summer for him. The twins are happy to just be around him so wherever we go they usually have a smile on their faces; it’s crazy to think that next summer they will be running around with him! Even when it’s an effort to get out of the house we are usually rewarded by three very happy little boys which makes it all worthwhile. Here are some of our photos so far.
