Summer, Summer, Summertime! We’ve waited for it allllll year and summer is finally here. We’re off to a rocky and inconsistent start here in Boston – but I’m not complaining. The peaks of sunshine we’re getting in between the rain is more than enough to put a smile on my face.
I get kind of bummed my schedule isn’t more flexible in the summer – I’d love to hang out by the pool with my kiddo all summer, eating ice cream, and getting my tan on. Buuuut that’s not the case – so our weekends are jamn packed with local excursions and adventures outdoors.
I really wanted to make this Summer more exciting for lil mama and I. It’s been a rough year for us, and I wanted us to be able to get out, let loose, and enjoy these months with each other. We’ve had some pretty awesome adventures since June has started. We took our first trip to Disney and had a great time, and just got back from New York on Monday. I’m glad to NOT have to worrying about packing…for awhile. I’ve got some ideas for other trips to take and I can’t wait to experience them alongside my daughter.
Hyundai Santa Fe wants to know what your epic playdate would consist of. If you were to ask my daughter what her epic summer adventure would be, one thing would be a must. Any trip must include water, and a chance for her to go swimming! There is one picture of me nine months pregnant that she loves to look at and talk about. She SWEARS she remembers her thoughts from when she was in her tummy J I was in a two piece (the ONLY time I’ve worn a two piece) waddling around a beach in Maine. So of course, we have to go to Maine. I’ve seen a lot of signs in local T stations marketing the “Train to Maine” and of course it intrigued me! They offer round-trips daily between Boston and Portland. There is so much to experience in Maine, like sandy beaches, world-famous pier fries and a seashore amusement park at Old Orchard Beach. It’s my most epic playdate – and the fact that I can experience this car-free is just an added bonus!!
In a previous Hyundai related post in April I wrote about the chance to attend Hyundai Santa Fe Epic Playdate Weekend and here is a post and below is a video from a blogger who attended the event,
A trip to Maine via train is my epic playdate experience, what’s yours?
