Summer Days Linky 5th June
Welcome to another week of the Summer Days linky which I am co-hosting it with Katie from Mami2Five Blog this year. The link with run all the way through the summer and into September and will be the ideal place to share your summery posts and find other to read and hopefully inspire you too!
You may want to add a round up of your week, a photo you would like to share, a recipe or a craft – anything you like that makes you think of summer. Would be lovely to see some family fun outside, enjoying the summery weather, be it on holiday or messing around in your back garden. Whatever you would like to add, Katie and I are looking forward to seeing all your summery fun.
Of course there are a few simple rules we would like you to follow please:
- Link up one of your summer related posts from this year.
- Please comment on at least the two posts before yours. If you want lots of lovely blog karma (it’s a real thing, honest!) then the more you comment, the more comments you will get back – simple!
- You can use the hashtag #SummerDays when you comment to let people know where you came from.
- Please add the badge to the bottom of your post to help spread the word of the linky.
- Have fun – it’s summer!
Thank you to all our lovely linker-uppers last week!
I enjoyed Karen from Mini Travellers photos of their visit to The Lost Carnival. Merlinda at Glimmer of Hope saw some amazing Sand Sculptures. Emma writing at South West Reviews went horse riding in beautiful Menorca with her daughter, and Hayley from Home also shared some gorgeous photos when her family visited Rufford Old Hall.
It was great seeing so much outdoorsy fun. This week has been quite a bit different though hasn’t it?! Thankfully, after a couple of cold, wet and blustery days, it turned back into Summer again for us and we got out to visit The Wild Place in Bristol. If you haven’t heard of The Wild Place project, it is owned by Bristol Zoo, but the focus is much more on conservation. Freyja was desperate to see the cheetahs. We saw one of them quite close, hidden amongst the long grass. It was obviously observing us as we stood watching it. Unfortunately I just couldn’t get a half decent photo of it. Other animals were much more obliging, an okapi (which I always assumed were very shy animals) wandered over to see us, and in the lemur walk-through exhibit one of the ring-tailed lemurs jumped over our heads.
Both girls really loved the Barefoot Trail – a 150m walk through a variety of textures. They particularly enjoyed running through the straw, wobbling over rounded pebbles and then squelching through mud. Thankfully there were taps to clean off feet at the end, and I had bought a towel just in case! The Barefoot Trail was so popular we had to do it three times!
So that is how we enjoyed the Summer this week. What about you guys?
