Did you play with Lego as a kid? My brother and I certainly did back in the day. It's a hit with Abner too. We managed to fit a fair sized bag of it in our luggage and have been making up designs most afternoons while laying in the sunbeam in the lounge.
We're lucky to live in a part of town with easy access to great trails and parks. Abner and The Dear Sweet Husband head out after dinner some nights to explore the paths and check out the views of the valley. The other day they came home stuffed with fresh picked berries and telling tales of all the cool things they saw, like a bird's nest which had fallen from its tree.
Of course, not all of our exploration has taken place on foot. We recently got Abner her very own scooter and she's taken to it like a fish to water. They're very popular here with kids and are far more affordable than bikes, so we bit the bullet and got her one even though it's not her birthday - it's pink (ugh). Requests to "go for a scoot?" have been heard almost daily since.
And that's the week that was.
