On our first holidays as a family Part IV

Here are the "non-portrait" pictures. I thought at first that it would be a good idea to put all of them in different parts, and hesitated for a while.. I'm not sure it is such a good idea anymore, what do you think? Shall I do it like that again next time or just mix them?

Anyway, South of France is one of my favourite place, it is just amazing!! So so so pretty!! My dream always been to have a holiday house there :p  How nice that would be... Having our little home down there and to be able to go once or twice a week....

Here are a couple of pictures from Grasse, such a lovely town! Too bad we didn't have such a nice weather. My grandma is literally living down this hill where Grasse is, and her friends and her always say "You want to know where Grasse is? Look at the clouds, Grasse is always the only place around with big clouds". Well, we experienced it very well this time when we went there xD  We even had thunder while on the bus back, which sounds much louder and scarier up there!
The thing I found quite funny there is that everything seemed terribly far to my grandma and others. If we were asking until where we could walk to get a bus from there and make it easier, the answer was "oh no you can't walk, it's too far, you can't catch a bus on the way". Which actually made us loose quite a lot of time at the end as people kept telling us to go aaaaall the way to Cannes, where we had to wait for 45 minutes before a bus arrived - with a real jerk for driver! Nothing do with the one on the way back - and have this bus that was for about 50 minutes... On the way there we realised that we could have stopped earlier from the first bus, but we'll know for next time ;)

I've always been and still am completely in love with those things on windows!!

I've been also really surprised by the beauty of Nice! I don't why at all but I didn't think I'd love it that much. I probably thought it would like centre of Cannes, which I don't like that much to be honest.

Very very unfortunately, those two pictures are the only ones we got from Monaco :(  That is such a shame because it is craaaazily pretty!!! We could have stay there for a whole day I think but couldn't stay longer than half hour to an hour. And my camera's battery died exactly 2-3 minutes after we came out of the station... We had my phone, which was lucky as I wasn't using it over there cos no internet or anything, but I couldn't put the pictures on my computer yet - no more space on it after 3 years :o

And here are a couple of picture from Le Chateau de La Napoule which is on my favourite beach around my grandma's place, and the beach where we were going every two days at least.

Oh dear South of France, I miss you so so much already!! See you next time ;)

On our first holidays as a family Part III

I am so sorry it took me forever to finish this post and finally finish it about our holidays - I'm sorry you probably don't wanna hear about it anymore, especially since we came back 2 weeks ago already... I have been working on a little project for my mum and grandma to thank them for receiving us there and squeezing in this tiny flat, as they didn't want us to pay for anything over there we thought a nice photo book with all the pictures from those holidays would be a present they'd love. But holy cow! It's taking forever! 

Anyway, we took Chloe for the first time to the playground and actually got on some of those swings etc, and she loved it :)  It was adorable!! I can't wait to go more often and seeing her playing for real - The Olympic Park is opening in about a month, yeeeeaaaaaay!!!!! I can't wait!!!
Here are some pictures from our 2 last days.

Her first meal at the restaurant, she's been sooo good!! She is such a perfect well behaved little girl wherever we go, fingers crossed she'll stay like that :)

Such a cutie smile to her Grandma <3

On our first holidays as a family Part II

Hi everyone! We are back with a new post with our pictures from our holidays and a bit more of our adventures :)

That little girl adores her daddy. And gosh I love them both

Doesn't she look so happy on the beach? :)

So here she is, our baby girl, going on the sea for the very first time. Apparently some are scared? Well, she was not at all!! We kind of had a hint of how much she loves water with her bath, but I mean, sea is not a bath! And that could get a bit scary with all the waves, the fact that the water is much colder etc... But not her! She was even very happy as you can see. One of our last days I even sat her down in the water and she loooooved it!! We then went a bit further down in the sea and put more of her body in the water and she really enjoyed it. Sadly, we don't have any pictures or videos as we went just the 3 of them to the beach and as I went first by myself those were she was sitting could not happen. I then asked kindly to someone on the beach near us if he could keep an eye on our staff, but same thing, we were all in the water so I didn't wanna risk my camera...
Anyway, I can't wait to start our Water Babies classes in September, I am sure that she is gonna love it and have so much fun :)  I'll make sure to let you more about it once we've started ;)

V and I went to spend a day to Nice. I've never been there before and it totally worth the price from Mandelieu or simply to visit, it is so pretty!! We also went to Monaco as our train tickets allowed us to travel the whole day anywhere in the region. I haven't put any pictures from on my computer yet as I needed to use my phone - no more battery in my camera exactly when we came out of the train :( - but it is MA-GNI-FICIENT!!! We completely fell in love with it!! The view, the city, the people - for what we've seen in about half hour to an hour xD  We now just need to get extremely rich and famous to get our holiday house there as I think V would rather have it there than anywhere else in South of France - from what he's seen for now.

Those pictures where taken during a visit of castle on the La Napoule's beach - my favourite one by far in my grandma's area. The view from the castle's garden, and it's gardens are sooo pretty!! And it actually was the day we've sat Chloe in the sea xD

Having a picture of the 3 of us is actually quite rare and difficult..

And that's what that young lady was doing while V and I were visiting: enjoying some time with her grandma and Boushka (my grandma) :) Going to the park, having walks, going shopping or just chilling in my grandma's appartment.
