Summer is always the perfect opportunity for us to get active, warm sunny days and longer, lighter warmer nights it gives us that up and go feeling. I know lots of you will be going on camping holidays (Summer time isn't just for beach holidays!) Abigail has just come back from a week in Devon where she done lots of activities, being in the outdoors is great, for both children and adults. Nice walks in the evenings, especially to ware out the children before bedtime is perfect. Or if you go away without the children and are very active then you will need the right clothes to wear. There would be nothing worse than going away wearing uncomfortable shoes and the wrong clothing.
Here's a list of clothing essentials I've put together for that perfect outdoor trip!
Waterproof Jacket - If you are out on a long walk then you will need a hooded waterproof jacket, the last thing you will want to go is be carrying along an umberella. Something that isn't too padded that you could layer up underneath. Especially if its cold then layers are ideal.
Microlight Insulated Vest - These are fab for the outdoors, and great for layering up to wear under coats, or even if its warmer weather you can wear these without a coat and just add a long sleeved top underneath.
Walking Boots or Shoes - Now this is so important to have the correct footwear. There would be nothing worse than finishing off a nice walk with sore blistery feet so make sure you have the correct footwear. There are lots of great ones available and you don't have to spend a fortune but just make sure you have the correct ones.
Rucksack - Always great to have a rucksack to carry your essentials around in, drinks, food, maps mobile phone etc. Also if you are taking small children then how about a child carrier, they are fab for small children.
