Summer wish list

Now the weather is warming up, i am getting excited about all the wonderful outside days we can have as a family. The bluebells will be out in a week or two and every year we go to a wonderful little secluded woods out in the country. I am really looking forward to going this year. It will be the first year that Mia will be walking and i cannot wait to see her little face as she walks through the woods. 
We also go to three or four vintage steam ralleys during the summer also, the first being next weekend. We have done these steam ralleys for years and years and its so much fun to go and they always have an old fair ground. To some people, these might seem quite dull days out but it is something that means a lot to me. I thrive on creating memories and keeping traditions. I am so excited about documenting our summer days here on the blog and just making memories with my family.

I made a little wish list that i would like to do this spring/summer.

Steam ralleys
Bbqs by lake
Setting off wishing balloons
Kite flying
Bluebell wood picnic
Family photos plus lots of me and my boy
Taking a walk along the river by Stevington windmill
Strawberry picking
An afternoon at the bell pool
Bike rides
Evening walks around the lake
Car boots

There are so many things i want to do. I just sometimes wish that our hotter weather lasted longer than just a few months before it starts to cool off and become artic again! Do any of you have any family day out traditions that you do every year? I am just excited to make these traditions for the girls and for them to grow up and hopefully want to do the same with their children.


  1. I don't know what a steam rally is but everything else sounds perfect..

    1. Oh its wonderful. Its in a big field and the field is packed full of old steam engines and an old fairground and antique stalls x

  2. Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?

    I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd
    like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

  3. I have such fond memories of walks through bluebell woods from my own childhood. We would have a picnic around a tree stump that we always called the picnic table. I'm just waiting for the bluebells to appear here so I can take my children to do the same thing, we went on a practise run last week but no little blue flowers as yet!
    Your list sounds lovely and I'm sure you'll make some amazing memories. x
