Pre-baby weekend

Imagine the eyes of the kids when they heard me saying that they can choose what we are having for dinner and I wouldn’t say “no”. And after the dinner they have a tough decision to make: weather we are going to the movies or spend the whole day at the amusement park. Well, I am serious, they had the power of decision for this one weakened – maybe the last weekend before the baby arrives. I was crafting this idea for a couple of weeks. I know many couples are going on baby moon before their *usually* first baby arrives, but we decided to make it a fun pre-baby weekend for all of us! Cause happy kids means happy parents! :D And who knows when will be the next time we can do fun things like that

On our to-do list for this weekend were things like having a cozy movie night at home with popcorn all over the place :), stay up late, sleep in, eat breakfast in pajamas, go for a lunch out, visit Liseberg amusement park (that’s a huge success every time!), order pizza for dinner, you name it. The fact that we won TWO kg of chocolate at the park and then a toy monkey just made the weekend even more exciting! Turns out Lil’ Fil knows all the lucky numbers! :D

Beautiful morning and horses

We spent the last night of our trip in a very picturesc German village at the hotel that also owned horses! Lil’ Fil and I both had trouble sleeping that night – I guess we were too excited to drive home next day. So in order to let the rest of the family sleep, we went for a refreshing morning walk around the village. The morning was stunningly beautiful. Foggy sunrise and horses made the picture even more idyllic. But the most amazing thing was watching Lil’ Fil talking to horses and feeding them apples. He was treating them like they were his friends and this was something I have never seen in him before. ♥

Madurodam

Some of the most vivid memories from this summer come from the city of Haag where we had a stop on our way home. We visited Madurodam – a miniature park with all Holland’s most remarkable sights in one place. Guess if kids loved it there??? :D This is a place where we definitely going next time we are in Holland. It was so much fun for both kids and us.

That day also happened to be J’s birthday. We were not planning to celebrate it. However I found a nice fish restaurant and even made reservations for that night. Which I canceled when I realized that most probably we won’t make it to Haag by that time. But by a very strange coincidence we not only found it but also opened the door the same time we had our canceled reservation. It turned out to be a lovely place and the food was sooo delicious. Hands down – our best dinner during the trip.

Normandy beaches and tides

We happened to witness a very rare natural phenomenon while in France, which neither of us have seen before. I am talking about tides. Normandy happen to have the heaviest tides in Europe. And the reason we learned about this was our second visit to the beach. When we came to the beach the sea was… gone. The beach, which was about 10-20 m wide the first time we were here was now about 150-200 m wide. We couldn’t believe our eyes and we spent the rest of the day trying to explaine this phenomenon to kids. ;D
