Yay!!! It's Summer time!!! Isn't just the right time of the year? Peeps.We awaited a long time to pass over this gloomy, sulky rainy days and yes, finally we are catching some sunshine. Put on your shoes, get out of the house and grab a lot of Vitamin D. Hoping that this is just a late start for this year and much more warmer days ahead. So stay calm! Summer is full of activities and with kids around it is evidently exhausting. Back in my school days, I spent most of my lovely summer days at my granny's house which is barely ten miles away from my home in Coimbatore. My brother and I used to pack our clothes in huge bags before even we completed our final annual exam. And on the last day of our school, we somehow managed to dodge all the ink spraying kids in the school and reached our home spotless and left to our granny's house in no time. Those memories are etched in my mind for a lifetime. It was a sort of story book childhood which is truly a reminiscent of loving people and touchy events. My second most favorite thing of summer is water melons. This ancient fruit gives me a cool and refreshing thought. Did I say ancient? Yes, It is an ancient fruit dated back to the Egyptian period somewhere around 4000bc. This amazing fruit with so much water content and high antioxidants, carotenoids and low calorie fruit can combat heat so effectively. I surprised my DS with this delicious water melon popsicles on a hot day. He loved it so much and I think you should also make it for your little ones to beat the heat.
