The summer holidays are finally here. Six weeks of wondering what we are going to do with the kids, and hoping that the weather plays fair when we want to go out. So far it has been pretty rubbish weather wise, though we did have nice enough weather for a family BBQ at the beginning of the week.
We have a few things that we want to do during the holidays. Hopefully it is enough to stop us all getting bored and to have lots of fun.
Over the summer we plan on having a lot of days out. The places we want to go vary from theme parks, zoo’s, beaches and parks. I am quite lucky in the fact that Booey finds a lot of different places interesting, she never gets bored while we are out (well, not enough to complain about lol.). And now that she is older she can walk quite a way too. The day out we are all really looking forward to is Monkey World, we all love it there.
Both Booey and I love reading, so the Library is one of our happy places. Booey has to read at least 6 books during the holidays (something she will do easily), so I know we will be spending a bit of time there. There also have a lot of activities going on. Hopefully they will have some crafts going on as Booey loves them.
Meeting Up With Friends.
The holidays are great for meeting up with friends. Whether it is for a quick cuppa or a day out with all of our kids it is always fun. Booey also wants to meet up with a few of her friends at the local park. It’s only 2 minutes from our house and they will be loads of them going. I hate her being out without me, but it’s something I am going to have to get used to.
Hubby and I are members of a local sports center. As we are members we only pay £5 a month for Booey and she can go swimming as much as she likes. If she has her way we will be at the pool pretty much everyday! I do like to go swimming, but with Booey, we just play around in the pool, she gets bored swimming lengths lol! This will be perfect for days when the weather is rubbish and we can’t go outdoors. We have been already this week, and it won’t be long before she wants to go again lol.
Our plans might not seem very exciting to some, but they are things that we will enjoy. I am really looking forward to the next few weeks, I must be mad lol!
What are your plans for the holidays?
Take care everyone.
