A summer list with H – part two

b-flowers

My lovely niece came round last weekend and we crossed some more things off the summer list.

Here’s a reminder of where we’d got to – stargaze, go bowling, ride in a boat, make s’more, visit a beach, pick berries, fly a kite, make lollies, feed ducks, visit a museum, eat watermelon, paint rocks, collect seashells, make ice cream sundaes, learn a song on the piano, make pizza from scratch, blow bubbles, ride your bike to the park, have a picnic or 3, make lemonade, get ice cream from the ice cream man, play rounders, make cupcakes, play giant jenga outside, write a story, pick and arrange flowers, listen to music outside, take photos and make a summer album, write letters to Mel and Gav about you Portugal trip, make a flower headdress.

So in round two we picked and arranged flowers.

Visited a museum.

We picked the National T.V and Film Museum in Bradford. Which was really good. Full of interactive exhibits like making a stop motion film – in the shot above – and a timeline of technology which was displayed in a very creative way.

And after all that fun a cuddle.

That wasn’t on the list but I’ll take one of those every time.

She also picked berries. There is a very unruly, wild blackberry patch out in the wood so we attacked it and gathered a harvest.

We also had a game of giant Jenga. I just love that she went to get the little stool, not to offer me it mind, to use herself. And Buddy getting on with whatever it is he’s doing in the background. Thanks Gav for capturing a perfect shot.

And finally make ice cream sundaes. (sorry about the appalling photos.)

I should also mention that a few items got crossed off while she was away on holiday with her family. So the list stands like this right now.

stargaze, go bowling, ride in a boat, make s’mores, visit a beach, pick berries, fly a kite, make lollies, feed ducks, visit a museum, eat watermelon, paint rocks, collect seashells, make ice cream sundaes, learn a song on the piano, make pizza from scratch, blow bubbles, ride your bike to the park, have a picnic or 3, make lemonade, get ice cream from the ice cream man, play rounders, make cupcakes, play giant jenga outside, write a story, pick and arrange flowers, listen to music outside, take photos and make a summer album, write letters to Mel and Gav about you Portugal trip, make a flower headdress.

I think we’ve done pretty well but have extended the deadline by two weeks just to see what else we do…..
