Last Tuesday Iván turned 4. 4! Can you believe it?! The weekend before we celebrated his and my nephew’s birthday together (who has his birthday one day before Iván). On Tuesday we had another little small party at home. Four candles already. I just can’t wrap my head around it.
Last weekend we finally managed to go to the Efteling again. The weather was a bit cold at times. But overall nice enough to be outside for a couple of hours. It was pretty busy so we skipped the long queues and just had a walk in the Fairytale Forest and enjoyed the merry-go-round. Just being there already brings a smile on our faces.
When we came back from Girona we decided to have a (500 meter) walk to the beach and have a look. We only passed it by car but didn’t actually put our feet in the sand yet. With so much water around we knew Iván wouldn’t stay dry but seeing that big smile on his face was priceless!
We planned visiting my cousin in Spain since it had been a while. Looking in our agenda’s we eventually came up with October. Instead of visiting their house they offered using their apartment in L’Estartit, which is a small town and seaside resort on the Costa Brava. To make things easier for ourselves we also rented a car. We had visited Barcelona a couple of times but hadn’t seen much else of Catalonia. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and decided to visit Girona on Friday. The Catalonia independence situation luckily didn’t cause any problems.
Again, I was falling behind with editing the photos. But I’m slowly catching up and that means I have some more images to show as well. I haven’t been shooting much lately either unfortunately. Life is busy! But life will always be busy. 🙂 And actually that should be an extra motivation for picking up that camera. Something to look back at and keep track of all the things that are happening.
Last time when we were in Hungary we booked an apartment at lake Orfű. Just to get some of that holiday feeling and spend some time with just the four of us. The apartment was great and had everything we needed. A swimming pool, a playground, bicycles, games (badminton, fuzboll) and more. Plus a stunning view over the lake!
Adri’s brother works in the army. During our holiday in Hungary there happened to be an open day at the base he works. So when we were asked to have a look there we couldn’t refuse. There were a lot of kids activities organized as well. So this would be a nice day to go out and bring Iván with us.
Holiday finally arrived! Unfortunately when writing this blog post it already ended again and we’re back to business as usual. Hungary was great and we fully enjoyed our time as a family there. We went by car and arranged a sleepover with friends in Vienna. It had been 6 years since our last visit to Vienna. So we were excited to visit the city again and more importantly catch up with our friends which we also hadn’t seen for a while.
