Man, it's HOT around here!
It's been hot for the last 3 weeks or so.
Every morning we wake up to a blue sky, hardly a cloud in sight and by 10 am when I take Annie to school, it's already 25ºC outside.
Makes me wonder what it's going to be like by the time we are in August!!
But it's been a good weekend. Last night we had a picnik supper, consisting of "make your own pizzas" (mine was anchovy, artichoke, capers and blue cheese, Annie's was her traditional "cheese and black olives", Cisco's was his traditional...meat whatever ;)
...and we watched--for the second time this weekend--"Arthur and the Minimoy". What a great film that is. We'd seen it before but I think Annie was younger and didn't enjoy it as much. If you have kids and haven't seen it, it's well worth the watch. And even if you haven't got kids...your inner child would have a blast.
Here's a link. And you'll recognize several of the voices, I am sure!
Today has been a hang out at home day. Cooked a nice meal for lunch (the bigger meal of the day in Spain)...Annie's two cousins came over to play in the paddling pool on our deck. They had an absolute blast, and were wet for a good 3 hours. Good way to keep cool. Cisco was even in the pool with the 3 of them at one point!
The girls were rolling around like mermaids.
Which reminds me, I wanted to share one of Annie's drawings, on her favourite topic. She's become quite the expert on drawing them, very systematically.
And when she plays dolls (or barbies, which are mostly mermaids anyways!) she usually plays out the stories of Ariel, or Alina...
Pretty good rendition for a 4 year old, eh?
Cracks me up...and makes me smile.
So here's to believing in mermaids...and fairies...and princesses...
And enjoy your Sunday!
