July is concerts in the park, non stop swimming pools, learning to ride a bike, park afternoons, beach days, garden visits and celebrating friends.
This year Emma and I volunteered for the Autumn Lights Festival with the bonsai garden. We help set up and also worked the event for two of the nights. Emma was able to explore the festival solo which was very exciting for them.
