random shots from our holiday, half-way through.

kiddos by the pool.

At Jameos del Agua. More about that in a later time.

The landscape here is stunning. Lunar. The wine is fan-tastic.

grilling!

those baby-lead weaning weaned babies sure love their food.

Our lovely finca.

day 7

Posted by sol in images, my sons are smarter than me

Michele went to France a week ago and I’ve spent the last 7 days entertaining my kids 12 hours a day. It’s been kicking my butt and that to-do list with all the things I was supposed to make and do after putting them to bed is there, untouched.

 

This morning we challenged the *sweltering* Sterzing summer (12°C, no shit), and we went up for a ride in the cable car. We got there a tad early for lunch, so we stopped to pick flowers.

Then we had lunch. Some folks are serious about their love for pasta.

I, on the other hand, was happy to skip lunch and go straight for dessert. Don’t be fooled by the three forks. My kids saw none of this loveliness.

In the afternoon, after a 3 (three) hour nap that saw both children and mother involved, we headed to the flying field. My kids might be the luckiest alive. They love tractors and they live in a place where tractors (and cows, and flies, and dung) abound. This one here is a relic, bought second hand by my husband’s grandfather more than 30 years ago. Damiano gets to drive it.

A geometric display typeface with whimsy details like open counters and pointy corners. Named after the town I live in.
