Is there anything better than kids and water on a long lazy summer holiday day? This day will stay with me for a long time, it was perfect!
We are lucky enough to have friends in our town with river access and a canoe in their garage. The boys hauled it across the garden and down to the water.
Jumped on board
And set off on an adventure
I waved them off and grinned happily to myself as I heard Bonus Boy laughing off into the distance
When the boys returned, having diced with death on the town weir ‘We did Mummy, we almost DIED, it was fablious [sic]’ They all messed about a bit
Then the girls set off
They were gone for quite some time and returned with handfuls of treasure, they had been ‘beach combing’ further upstream.
It was time for dry clothes and refreshments in the shade of the pear tree.
Children and water, a perfect combination! It is the simple stuff which childhood memories are made of.
What are you up to this weekend? How will you be marking the end of summer? Will you be sad when the long lazy days are over or delighted to see the school gates open?
