I wrote about our first family camping trip last week and I mentioned that we had visited the most beautiful beach.
In the days before children, my husband and I used to go camping often. We loved it. Spending the day outside, cooking simple food, watching the sun set and waking with the dawn. A true escape from our busy lives.
Making, baking and creating were high on the list when I sat down and asked the children what they wanted to put on our summer bucket list.
I have written many posts about Breakheart Reservation, and it remains one of our favourite places to go, at any time of year.
This summer has seen the dynamic in our family change. The 9yo is older, more responsible. The 6yo is as enthusiastic as ever! And the wee girl, well she is no longer a toddler. She is a little girl.
We discovered Storyland, located in Glen, New Hampshire, during our first summer in New England. It is a theme park aimed at kids under 12. And adults who don’t like scary rides. Which would be me.
There is something perfectly summery about playing in water. Whether swimming, splashing, having a water fight or simply dancing in sprinklers.
Last weekend we headed north into New Hampshire to go to Storyland (a fabulous theme park aimed at children, post to follow!). We spent a couple of wonderful days up there, and managed to tick another thing off our summer bucket list by playing mini golf!
I have wanted to visit the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum for ages, about two years in fact! We finally made it there this week, and it was definitely worth the trip.
The beginning of the week was very hot and humid. In all honesty it was making everyone pretty grumpy.
