Photographs are not just pictures of a place and time or the people in them. Photographs are a way to be transported back to a time when those photos were made. The way she continuously giggled. The way he kept watching his big sister, wanting to join in on the fun. The way they smelled […]

10 Tips to Enjoy Local Splash Pads and Summer Safety for Kids

Summer is arriving soon and when the kids and I need to cool off we LOVE spending time outside. One of our most favourite ways to enjoy outdoor time is to hang out in our backyard. I set up a kiddie pool and a slide that sprays water and we can spend hours being outside. […]

Thanks for the tips. Can I ask what sunscreen you use? I spent SO MUCH time researching last summer, and I just got so overwhelmed because the reviews were so mixed on some sunscreens! Thanks so much! ~Sarah @ MePlus3Today.blogspot.com

Fantastic tips, thank you. I always use swim pants that are kind of like a diaper. You can wash them like fabric diapers and use them again. Great for the environment!

Clare Swindlehurst -

Amy these are brilliant tips – I love the one about water shoes, I used to wear them to water parks a few years back and never thought about getting some for my children. I’ve added them to my shopping list! I think the only thing I’d add to your list is to keep the kids out of the sun between 11 and 3 because that’s when its hottest and to wear SPF swimwear for added protection. #supermommyclub
