With only a week left until the kids are back to school we've been trying to cram in as much last-minute summer fun as possible, fitting in all our favourite field trips and outdoor activities just one more time before we're back to the daily busyness of work and school and schedules.
Bike riding and playing at the park are among our favourite and most frequent summer afternoon outings so I thought we'd make a whole day out of it - a park hop!
We have a dozen awesome parks with playgrounds within a couple of kilometres of our home - in addition to the one just outside our backyard gate. I mapped out a route that covered most of them and packed a picnic lunch. The boys hopped on their bikes and rollerblades and we took off for an all-day neighbourhood park hop.
What a great way to spend a summer day and turn something as everyday as a trip to the park and a picnic into an adventure!
