I hate to say it, but summer weather will inevitably be ending soon (we do live in Canada, right?). I’ve been really pleased by the warmth that September has shared though — it is much more mild than many other years at this time. I’ve even heard that the weather should continue into October — here’s hoping!
We’ve been using this time to enjoy a few things that we can’t do in the winter. One thing we’ve been doing is swimming in a local outdoor pool. Little One, as it turns out, is quite the waterbaby (though she’d be annoyed if she heard me say that as she’d tell me, “I am NOT a baby!”) and loves to play in the pool. Keeping her safe is my number one priority, so the Coleman Puddle Jumper was an obvious choice for her! She was really pleased that it was purple (which is her favourite colour!) and there were no complaints when she was wearing it, so I know it must be comfortable! I like the fact that, with a range of weight from 30 to 50 pounds, she will also be able to use it next summer and the one buckle system makes it easy to put on and take off!
We’ve also been having some campfires in the backyard. We are trying to squeeze in as many as we can because we were under a fire ban for the first part of the summer, so we didn’t get to enjoy our evening campfires as much as we wanted to. So now we are making up for lost time! The girls love cooking things at the campfire so the S’more Maker has been really popular! The girls love that they can help assemble their S’Mores and then watch me cook them in the campfire! And, while we haven’t had a chance to try it yet, I’m looking forward to trying out Coleman’s Popcorn Popper. I think we are going to wait until Grandma comes for a campfire as she loves (!!) popcorn, so will be a great surprise for her!
Coleman has really helped us to savour the last days of summer!
