Our Memories of Summer

As the warm weather turns cooler and the summer begins to fade, I have been looking back on what the summer holidays have meant to our family. Last summer was my daughter’s first summer holiday from school. But as I fell down the stairs and broke a toe one week into the holiday, it was not the summer I had in mind. But we made up for it this summer. Husband took time off, we had day trips and visited the in-laws. We lazed about at home and visited friends and family. We went to cool events and festivals. We ate copious amounts of ice cream.

This summer we made so many wonderful memories. We had six weeks where we didn’t have to worry about the school runs, clubs and homework. Dubz had his first splash in the sea. Moozles learned to sew. I didn’t break any bones. We made millions of loom bands. Dubz went from speaking 20 words to well over 100. Moozles can now do a forward roll in the pool. I haven’t fallen down the stairs once.

Summer 2014, you’ve been fab. Thank you for all the memories!

  1. Fabulous memories, and definitely all the better for no broken bones 🙂 Love all your photos, you really have had a fun packed holiday! I’m so glad that you have so many good times to look back on. And, you can never have too much ice cream 🙂 Thanks so much for linking such a happy post to #ThePrompt x

  2. Looks like some lovely memories and summer days! Was nice to read someone really enjoying summer actually!!! Gorgeous pics xx

  3. Wow you really have made the most of the time! I think that will be the big fear with school holidays – not squeezing enough on and wasting the time. It’s tricky with work because I do have restrictions on annual leave – especially during summer when everyone else wants to be off too – but at least I’m only part time. I’m looking forward to when my two are Moozles age and older because there’s so much more fun stuff they will be able to do. X #theprompt

  4. Aww I DID fall down the stairs and render myself immobile this summer. It was crap! Here’s to summer 2015! 🙂 glad yours was better than last year!

    Ps I’m buying a bungalow so I definitely can’t fall down the stairs next summer!!!
