Lucas is almost 16 months old! Having a toddler in the summer is really fun because we can spend lots of time outside. Especially here in Alaska, we really have to take advantage of the summer! We try to be outside as much as possible. Lucas is a pretty active and easy kid. He is happy just walking around outside. He sill doesn’t really play with any specific toys or objects- he just likes to move!
Here are a few of his favorite activities!
1. Walk Bubba
He loves walking… he could walk for hours probably. His favorite thing to do is hold the dogs leash and walk with Bubba the dog. Aren’t they so cute?!
He LOVES swimming! It’s so fun to take him. We usually go in the evenings (the only time there is family swim time actually!) after dinner and before bed. It’s at in indoor pool (no such thing as an outdoor pool here!) but it’s still fun. We go about twice a week right now as a family and it’s such a great time. This is a picture of his daddy and him going down a fun slide at a water park!
3. Visit the polar bears at the zoo.
We have a great zoo here. Lately the polar bears have been really active, playing with each other in and outside the water. They are such huge animals, it’s so cool to watch them.
A great indoor activity is finger painting. It also makes great art for your walls! Check out Lucas’ painting he made for our kitchen wall HERE!
Lucas also loves going to the indoor bounce house (which we try to save for winter time) the library, and he loves playing in his room. He loves pushing the cart while grocery shopping, sitting on top of the dog, walking around the house carrying his dads tools and occasionally I’ll catch him playing with blocks or his trucks and my jaw drops. That doesn’t happen very often, if at all. Sitting still is boring!
What do your kids like to do in the summer? Also- how hot is it today? About 70 here- nothing hotter please!
