Lets go fly a kite

Hasn't the weather been dismal this week? I mean it is so grey out, no clear skies and fluffy clouds, just a layer of thick grey stuff and a whole lot of drizzle, showers and heavy downpours thrown in too. I have been thinking about a lovely afternoon we had on the common on weekend a few weeks ago when it was scorching hot and the sun was out.

What the Little Ones wear- Joules dress

You all know the girls love dresses, given the choice they would not own a pair of shorts or trousers but sometimes they are more practical for my outdoorsy girls, however, more often than not they will be in a dress.

The current favourite for Little 2 is this one from Joules, perfect for this mixed up summer weather. A lovely lightweight cotton dress with a double layer skirt, pink and white stripes on the top with gold shiny spots and a blue skirt.

School's out for summer

Today the Little Ones finally broke up from school, I think we may well have been one of the last. It has been a long term and all three children have been particularly grumpy and tired in need of the summer break.

The Little Ones are VIP wildlife explorers at WWT Slimbridge

For those of you who regularly read my blog you will know that we are members and regular visitors of our local wetlands centre WWT Slimbridge, Gloucestershire. We have visited in the depths of Winter and the heat of the Summer, and we have had hours of fun jumping in puddles, and exploring the centre too already this year.

We were recently contacted by Slimbridge and asked whether the Little Ones would like to become VIP Wildlife Explorers for a day to road test their summer activities for them. We had already spotted the adverts for 'Dusty's Wildlife Explorers' when we were last there and having planned to go at the start of the holidays anyway, we were certainly willing to be the first to try them out.

Cooling off the Little Ones

The weather has certainly been warm lately and we have all been feeling it here at Loving Life with Little Ones, the girls have been coming home from school all hot and flustered and Little 3 has been tossing and turning at night.

MOKURU stick- the new fidget toy?

Hands up if you like to keep your fingers busy or if your child has a fidget spinner, well fidget spinners are so over... we have a new fidget toy in our house- the MOKURU stick and it is pretty addictive.

Out and about- Growing in confidence

Getting out of the house at the weekend is a must when you have three children, some days they might just spend most of the day out in the garden or spend an hour at the local park but we try to take them out and about at least once each weekend. There are lots of places to go near us in Gloucestershire for a walk and to explore and plenty of places to go and burn some energy close to home too.

The one about fruit!

Fruit, One of your 5-a-day right. Well, there is certainly no trouble getting this stuff into the Little Ones, in fact I am actually worried that they eat too much of it, can you actually eat too much fruit?
