Things I’m Loving


A few gems I’ve loved this week…

❤ Watching my daughters and dear ‘hubbie’, on a Sunday avo at a local school field, being active, having fun and keeping fit together (and eating pizza together al fresco).

Family fun at the school field

❤ An afternoon visit to the marina and maritime museum in Santa Barbara with my three daughters.

❤ Loving seeing Miss 4 master motor skills like cutting and stapling (got to celebrate the little things!). She made me a cool hat at the museum. Also love how encouraging and supportive her older sisters are.

❤ Miss 4 is starting to write and read too, as well as continuing to draw pictures to make her own ‘story books’ for her home library.

❤ Yoga on the beach. That was how I started my Sunday morning. Bliss. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photographs – not easy to multi-task a downward dog with a camera!

❤ Swimming in the rain (rain is so rare here in Santa Barbara that we get extremely excited when it falls!).

And finally…

❤ Zachary Levi and Sesame Street‘s Bert team up, with a song for the summer, that has an important message about turning off the gadgets – because, as the chorus goes…

The Bees are always buzzing ’bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don’t miss my little screen, because
The sky won’t need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely
sunny day.

Take a watch of the full song… and take a walk on a lovely sunny day :)

  • Family fun in the sunshine and lots of exercise outdoors – lovely. Let’s hope Sesame Street can inspire families to leave technology behind for a while and enjoy the great outdoors. Thanks for linking up and sharing your sunny photos with Country Kids.

  • Absolutely glorious photographs, the warmth from the sunlight is almost tangible. I used to teach in a school which had an outdoor pool, and the children could never understand why they continued to have swimming lessons in the rain; they’re wet anyway so what different does it make?
