Stopping by to leave you a treat:)

Hello peeps! How are you doing? Can't believe it's again been two weeks since I posted the last time! Time flies...We've spent a wonderful vacation in Normandy! The weather was crappy, most of the days rained but the place had a climatised pool and that was saving the days:) Even if it was raining the kids could play there. We only did one trip while there because Amaia was sick and tired of the car after the long drive that we didn't want to punish her with yet more hours in the car seat. So we only did a one hour drive trip to Utah Beach which is known from the WWII (the U.S. forces landed there as a part of Operation Overlord). The rest of the time we were just hanging around the house. Well, house...a castle! We had a big backyard for the kids to play (when it wasn't raining or wet:)) Anyway, they were quite entertained indoors as well. There were 6 kids in total. We were lucky with the ages - a boy not even one year older than Amaia and another girl just over a year younger than her. Then a boy of 14 months that was playing with our Eneko of 10 months. And the youngest one was just 11 weeks. The older kids we competing in taking care of her:) And surprisingly the older kids didn't have any problems in understanding each other. Two of them spoke Spanish and Amaia picked up very quick. And since she was most of the time with the older boy whose father is Argentinian she ended up with a very cute accent:))) I've got SO many beautiful photos that I decided to make a full album for us and our friends. I've already made a cover page that shows the house:

And first two pages (3rd one almost finished) - one of Ines and her dad in the pool (I just adore that picture of her, don't you?!) and one of me and Eneko on the Utah Beach:

And I've also made a monthly report of my little man this week. He's learned quite a lot and during ONE week he's grown THREE teeth!

Been busy this week:) Although I didn't quite feel like doing anything because it's been raining for 5 days in a row and I haven't managed to get the kids out of the house at all!!! This afternoon it's finally started to pick up!
