Summer is the favourite time of year for many and it’s not hard to see why. The smell of barbecues and the thought of warm summer evenings on the beach are enough to make you stop what you’re doing and head outside.
If you have some bored children there’s lots going on to keep them entertained.
- The South Show on 10th – 11th August
- The West Show on 15th – 16th August
Come and see us! We have a tent with competitions for the children and goodie bags to give away!
- The Donkey Derby on 18th August
Keep an eye out for our Sarnia Mutual sponsored donkey - he might even win the race this year!
- The North Show on 22nd – 23rd August
And what about those of us with animal children?
If your dog is a water fur baby and loves to splash around then turn your garden into a private water park.
Grab a sprinkler or hose, set it up, and encourage your pup to play fetch through it. I am going to try this with my 2 year old Chihuahua, Jesse
Now, moving onto summer food, check out these fun summer recipes:
If you have a sweet tooth like myself check out this recipe for Quick Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches
Bake peanut butter cookies and blitz frozen bananas with cream and vanilla to make this impressive speedy dessert – the children will think they’ve hit the jackpot!
And now something for the adults; Gin & Tonic Ice Lollies
For a twist on gin and tonic, these alcoholic ice lollies are a grown-up treat for hot summer days and they’ll keep in the freezer for up to 2 months
