This summer is all about fun outside. When Coca-Cola sent me a summer moments pack I knew I wanted to take it outdoors to the park. This isn’t just any park, it has a duck pond that is stocked full of fish….and even turtles!
First important thing to remember when heading out during the summer is to fill water bottles! You have to stay hydrated. Luckily Coca-Cola hooked me up with a really nifty one to use. My daughter threw on a Coca-Cola hat and my youngest son put on the glasses. We grabbed a bag of bread crusts (I made homemade uncrustables the day before, so it was perfect timing) and we headed to to visit the wildlife.
We had to much fun watching all the fish swarm up to steal the bread from the ducks……THEN, a turtle showed up out of no where and was stealing from the fish!
As the turtle got closer, we noticed it was a red ear slider, like some we used to have years back. We decided this was one of our old turtles (that just quadrupled in size) and we called him Ziggy. The kids were screaming for Ziggy to come back and play.
It was a great time and we love going out as a family and doing things like this around town. You don’t have to spend a fortune on going to amusement parks or anything else. Look for local treasures, like Mariposa Park in NW Albuquerque, and you can create fun memories for your kids!
