Aidan has found his independence so we’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately, giving him plenty of room to do his own thing and explore. The last week or so has been really hot during the day and I know the coming summer is going to be a sweaty one.
Today I dragged Aidan’s highchair outside and we had a lazy afternoon tea of watermelon and strawberries. I stripped him off so he could get all messy and covered in juice. The perfect cool treat after a hot day full of adventure.
When Aidan was younger he loved frozen pureed watermelon. I’d put it in a mesh sack and he’s gnaw at it for ages, it was really soothing for his teeth too. I’ve bought some icey pole molds and I make my own fruity blends for Aidan to munch on, Pineapple and Raspberry is a favourite. I’ll be sure to post recipes in the future for you to try with your little ones or even just as a healthy treat for yourself.
If icey poles don’t take your fancy then maybe you need something else to keep you cool during summer… Panasonic have just launched new range of air cons with Eco Patrol Sensors which adjusts the power to match the activity in the room reducing power consumption by up to 10%. Panasonic also has a nifty E-Ion Air Purifying System which detects levels of dirt in the air and catches more than 99% of household dust, virus or bacteria. The 2010 Panasonic Air Conditioners have a mild dry cooling feature which keeps the air moisture while maintaining the set temperature so the air is less dry… not to mention it’s pretty slick looking!
Panasonic is giving one lucky reader from the participating blogs, the chance to win a brand new air conditioner + installation, just in time for summer! Panasonic also have a FREE iPhone/iPad App (that you can download right now) that helps you choose the best system to suit your requirements, has a local store locator and other gadget goodies so have a play now, submit your answer to the following question and then cross your fingers and toes!
