School Holiday Activities: 42 Days of Summer

Little man has just started school last year, so this summer was his first ever school holidays. Until now, he would spend the summer at nursery, while I would be at work.

This year, we spent summer having lots of fun and creating beautiful memories together – and I must confess, I loved every minute of it!

Together we went to the park, fed the ducks, played in the swings, climbed the frames and had a great time together.
