Summer days

A few things that we've enjoyed this summer.

Bat walk in the local park. We saw plenty of bats although our three year old got rather scared-perhaps three is too young for watching bats late at night.

Teddy bears' picnic are much better for three year olds.

Making a mess with paint.

Picking, and eating blackberries.


  1. Bat walk in the park? Are you in the Austin area, by any chance? I've heard about a huge colony that is a big local attraction there. People spread blankets like yours and wait for the bats to wake up every evening. We've never been there but would love to go someday!

  2. Hi, no. We are in England. There are a fair number in the local parks and woods. There are often organised walks with people with bat detectors although my children say they can hear them anyway! We sometimes see them in our garden on summer evenings.
