|July 2012 - Family Day at the Beach|
Yet, right now, those long hot days of summer past seem like a distant memory. My son Matthew has a mid-summer birthday, which we always celebrate with a day at the beach - it is one of my favourite days of the year.
With the heat and warm lake temperatures record numbers of people flocked to the beaches last summer, which also resulted in several tragic drownings. It is not just smart to always put a life jacket or float suit on young children when around bodies of water, it will also help with their confidence in and around water. Konfidence is an online retailer which offers brightly coloured float suits for children aged one through five, which are absolutely adorable.
My family really are a bunch of water babies, who love to play at the beach. It is a wonderful way to spend a hot summer day. Though, we always need to be diligent and remember water safety, and keep children in our sight and within an arms reach.
So, are you longing the return of summer beach days, or do you love that crunch of snow beneath your boots?
