I’ve only somehow gone and completely forgotten to publish our summer bucket list! Opps. We’ve had a super busy couple of months and time has been running away with itself. I’m writing this on a soggy wet tube platform with umbrella collected rain water splashing into my shoes. Great. It’s meant to be August, but I’m pretty sure someone forgot to tell that to the weather. Luckily, we’ve been ticking bits off our list since June! Phewwww. Here’s our summer bucket list.
1. Visit Peppa Pig World
Little Button still adores Peppa. I can’t blame her. The cuteness and simple non-complicated storylines are perfect for summer lazy day watching. I’m secretly thrilled as we all love Peppa pig world. I may cry when she’s out grown it, but luckily Paultons Park promises lots of thrills for when that time comes.
2. A Garden Tea Party With #PeppaPlayDays
Little Buttons was thrilled to be asked to join in with the Peppa Pig #PeppaPlayDays campaign. She’s been spoilt rotten with a huge bundle of Peppa fun to keep her happy and entertained over the summer. We’ve already been scooting across parks on a super Peppa scooter, playing at Peppa Pig camper vans in the front room with a fab pop-up tent and keeping topped up with cool Peppa drinks at the beach. Next on the list is a garden tea party with a musical Peppa tea set. It’s so cute and whisks me right back to memories of Peppa Pig World.
3. Have A UK Summer Holiday Break
After doing lots of holidays abroad, I’m so ready to sit back and enjoy what’s on offer here, in the UK. We have some beautiful coastlines and I’m making it our thing to see as much of them as possible. Wales and Scotland are top of my list! *Update – We went to Wales and it was brilliant!
4. Visit A New National Trust Place
A couple of years ago we invested in National Trust cards and haven’t looked back since, despite not using them as much as we should. As a family who enjoys spending time out and about these cards are perfect for impromptu adventures.
5. London Sightseeing
Mr Button is always saying that we need to embrace the city more. I have a bit of a love/hate thing going on with London, but I can’t not let Little Button grab her fill of it when she’s so keen. *Update – We rode around London on a duck!
6. Fruit Picking
I have fond memories of going fruit picking. The fruit always seems to taste so much better when you’ve picked it yourself, don’t you think? Apart from our home grown tomato success, Little Button has yet to ever try this. Very excited!
7. Beach Hut Beach Days
We all LOVE the beach. It’s a home from home and with Millie’s beach huts a stone throw away from London (in Essex), there’s no doubt I’m starting to think that I should join Little Button in becoming a mermaid hehe! Beach days here we come. * Update – What better way to spend a sunny day than discovering a new beach hut!
Here’s to a gorgeous summer, even if it is a bit of a soggy one. Enjoy!
What’s on your summer bucket list this year? Let me know if you have come across any fab days out!
