I love the summer! The long sunny days, the smell of freshly cut grass, and the delicious BBQ dinners fill my soul. And since having kids, summers have become more memorable (and exhausting) than ever. Here are my top 10 things that I love to do each summer with my kids!

10. Gardening – While gardening and weeding do take at least 5 times longer with kids, I enjoy the time together exploring the dirt, talking about worms, and watching the fruits of our labour grow throughout the summer. Family favourites are cherry tomatoes, basil, and mint!

9. Sprinklers – the pure and uncensored joy of kids running through sprinklers on a hot summer day is impossible not to enjoy! A close second are water balloon fights.

8. Hikes and walks – Walks or bike rides through the neighbourhood or the woods are the perfect after-dinner activity that we love. We look for animals, new plants, flowers, and our neighbours!
