Growing up with a Swedish mother whose family stayed in Sweden, I was lucky to experience travel abroad from a young age. I’ve been fortunate to be able to do the same with my own kids, bringing them back to Europe to visit family and friends in the summer. Among the places we’ve visited, France’s Loire Valley figures as one of our favorite spots. Rich with culture and natural beauty, it’s a great place to take kids.
Enter our weekly gift card giveaway below!
Here are Marc and Marielle in the gardens of one of the Loire Valley’s chateaux or castles. Notice the grapes in the background!This herb was called Melissa!While visiting our friends in the Loire Valley, our kids had a much-needed dose of downtime. For days on end, they played in the garden and did simple things like the swing and the slide. We heard no complaints!Whether you’re traveling or home this summer, spending time outdoors with your kids will bring you closer as a family. Take a walk, a hike, or a bike ride. The fresh air and exercise will do all of you some good and the kids will remember the time you spent together.
Happy end of summer.
