Summer has gone by so quickly this year, I didn’t even realize that the kids are already back to their final week before school already. We were working on doing so much this summer and as always with time flew by quicker than we expected. While we didn’t get to do all we wanted we did get to spend some time outdoors with the kids and our youngest got us to take him bird watching. Whenever we are heading outdoors one of the main things we make sure we do is have lots of water so no one gets dehydrated. We have been even more careful this summer due to the air quality of air due to the Canadian wildfires. Those same wildfires is another reason we are careful when heading outdoors as well, we teach out kids to be responsible for cleaning up after themselves when outdoors.

Tips For Planning a Quick Trip Outdoors
When planning to spend time outdoors it’s important to make sure you’re doing everything to make sure your trip is enjoyable, and that you’re taking care of yourself and the environment as well. Here’s a few tips that can help make you enjoy your trip more:
- Make a check list of all the things you’ll need, even if it’s a last minute trip or a quick one for just an hour. It’s better to make sure you have all you need instead of finding out you’re missing something you need.
- Make sure you have lots of water with you when it’s hot outside, even when the weather gets cooler take water with you. Harmony water bottles from zak! are a great option for your water bottle choice, it can be used with or without a straw and it comes in two sizes, 14oz for the kids, and 32oz for adults.
- Take bug spray and sunscreen, our quick adventure we totally forgot our bug spray when grabbing our sunscreen. We were gonna take a quick hike but our stop for a quick photo before starting was a great reminder that we weren’t prepared for our hike at all. We all got a few bites in that short two minute window.
- Clean up after yourselves, it’s easy for wildfires to spread when people don’t make sure they take the proper precautions to clean up after themselves. Leaving trash behind could also hurt the native species in the area your exploring as well, be sure you’re being kind to nature so we can all enjoy it when we want.
- Enjoy yourselves, regardless of what happens on your trip be sure to take focus on the great memories and fun you had on the trip. The more you enjoy the trip the better your changes are of making more plans to head back outdoors for more fun.
