There are so many everyday wonderful things to experience for the first time with J. Below is our wishlist for this year. There are also lots of things on our family bucket list, which I will share at a later date, but these activities are possible with J as a toddler.
My 2016 family wishlist
1. Go for a family bike ride.
2. Go for a family picnic.
We went for picnics last year but J doesnt eat yet (even though he is over a year old) so Im looking forward to a picnic with all of us enjoying the tasty treats.
3. Make iced biscuits.
This is one of my happy memories icing biscuits and decorating them before eating them all up.
4. Go on a train.
5. Sing Christmas carols together.
Of course this is me presuming that J will be able to talk well enough by the time he is 2, but even if it is an attempt!
6. Build sandcastles.
7. Go to the paddling pool.
8. Eat fruit from a farmer’s market.
9. Watch fireworks.
10. Pick strawberries.
11. Build a fort with boxes, pillows and sheets.
12. Decorate the Christmas tree together. (I think I may regret this one…)
13. Visit a farm park.
We are going to do this one for Mother’s Day, as long as the weather is kind…
14. Feed ducks.
We’ve now crossed this one off our list. Check out Winter Walk to read about our first time feeding the ducks.
15. Collect leaves for artwork.
16. Splash in muddy puddles.
We had a great time ticking this one off and breaking in J’s new boots. Read all about it in Winter Walk.
17. Collect shells at the beach.
18. Go out for a family dinner.
We managed to visit Nando’s in February and J did sit in the highchair while we ate (quickly) but I’d like him to eat too to really count this one… finger’s crossed!
