I would like to think that Summer is not over yet, needless to say, I can already feel the cold breeze in the air. Anyhow, before we welcome or should I say DEAL with Autumn and Winter season, I still have one more fun memories of Summer this year regardless.
The weather has been quiet unpredictable the last few days. It’s sometimes rainy, cloudy, windy and even chilly. Suddenly last Sunday was really warm and sunny. Finally, a visit from the sun, Yippee! After going to the church and in the supermarket for our weekly shop in the morning, we were a bit on the loose end in the afternoon as we had no plans to go out either.
It has been a while now that these little kiddies kept going on about paddling pool because they had not played with it since Summer started. I felt a little bit guilty though because every time they asked me to put it out, I always refused to do so because it was not hot enough. However, with the lovely weather that day, I thought why not, we need to take advantage of this sun as we don’t often get to enjoy it and not for much longer.
After our lunch, their dad had put out the paddling pool which had not been used since we bought it as we were just waiting for a good weather to come. I think that Sunday was absolutely the perfect day for it.
Paddling pool been pumped up and filled up in time after Ruby’s afternoon nap. These two got changed with their swimwear on and with plenty sun cream too. And here they were having an outdoor fun. Splashing on the water with sheer enthusiasm in their faces. Reimer who always find adventure in everything, had used his wit by dragging the trampoline closer. He then took the pleasure of jumping from it which made a big swoosh on the paddling pool.
I would have liked to join in too because the two kiddies kept calling me to jump in, however, the paddling pool is rather too small for the 4 of us. I’m avoiding it to burst so it can still be used next time around. So I just left them to it, although I was tempted.
Halfway through, I’ve made some fruit salad for the kids too as they’re complaining that they’re hungry. I’ve cut off some apple, orange and banana and poured some double cream on it, an excellent snack for the kiddies.
For dinner that day, of course it had to be BBQ which we had bought when we went grocery that morning. BBQ and sunny day seemed like an impeccable combination. My husband who is always in charge of cooking BBQ prepared mostly the food. We had some Lamb Burgers for a change, soy and ginger marinated boneless chicken thighs which was really scrumptious. We also had some Greek salad, a little bit of potato salad and coleslaw.
To sum it all up, it was certainly a fabulous day at home. Enjoying the weather and at the same time, having bonding as a family.
How do you spend your weekend on a hot sunny day?
