Back Step Ice Lollies {The Ordinary Moments}

Since LP was old enough to walk we have had a tradition. Each summer the children would have ice lollies on the back step and although our house is now different and our back step has changed, this is a tradition that continues.

Back Step Ice Lollies {The Ordinary Moments}

The children have been coming in from school on hot days, sitting on the back step and having an ice lolly. We have a freezer full of them in the summer and they each have their favourites – a birthday cake Fab for Little Man and rocket lollies for LP.

They love to sit there, together, watching the world go round. They watch the cat rolling in the sun, chat to each other and plan the rest of their day. But in that moment they are as still as they get, siblings in the sun, passing time with an ice lolly.

I love this tradition of theirs. Side by side, sitting on a step just enjoying the summer. I have taken photos of them on the back step, year after year and it’s so nice to see that nothing has changed – another year, another step with LP and Little Man, right there, side by side, eating those ice lollies.

It’s only a few short weeks until the holidays and I can’t wait. There will be many more ice lollies and so many adventures but they all start here. At home.

  1. This is lovely, really lovely. It is these little everyday things (well maybe not everyday in this country!) that you will remember when they are older – as will they. #ordinarymoments
