Lake Garda

(posted by Elizma)

Leon, Liam and I spent the last 10 days on the shores of Lake Garda, in the North of Italy. It is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. The lakes with the Alps in the background makes for stunning scenery.

We spent some time on Monte Baldo (a mountain peak reached by cable car) and the views were fantastic - a highly recommended outing for anyone planning to visit the region.

As always, the quaint villages of Italy made for loads of hours wandering small, winding alleys. And we ate waaaaaaayyyyyy to much Gelati!

Here is a selection of our pictures. For more, click here.

Gelati - guess which one is mine? ;-) Although, I have to say that I didn't realise 3 scoops meant 3 liters in this particular shop.

Liam's opinion about life

(posted by Leon)

Liam shares his views on life, the universe and everything:


(Elizma here - this is what happens when I put him down for a nap. He chats non-stop. I think he knows if he's cute enough, I'll pick him up again and he won't have to go to sleep... (It ALMOST works!) And for those of you who wondered - believe it or not, he did go to sleep shortly after this.

Apologies for the bad camera work - I need to keep the camera so that he can't really see it as it distracts him and he forgets what he wanted to say... ;-))

Three months today!

(If you are wondering why the photos is always taken on his bouncy chair, it's because we want to keep a log of how he changes over the next year. Not sure yet where we will take the pictures once he's outgrown the chair!)

Liam's photos - August

Here is a selection of photos we took of Liam in August. I will try to post some every month. Some you may have seen before on this blog...

It's a loooooong way to Kinloch Rannoch

(posted by Elizma)

Leon, Liam and I went to Kinloch Rannoch in the Highlands of Scotland for a friend's wedding this weekend. We left home on Thursday afternoon, stayed over in a friend's cottage in Yorkshire and continued our journey on Friday. We only arrived at the hotel on Friday evening and were on our way back south again on Sunday morning - arriving back home this afternoon. A VERY long way to go for one day - believe me! In hindsight we should have flown to Edinburgh and hired a car...

However, the wedding was in a beautiful setting - reminding us that we should spend more time in Scotland. We stayed at the Dunalastair Hotel.

As there wasn't much time for sightseeing, we didn't even take one photograph, so for a look around the area, click on the links included earlier.

Tonight Liam was so tired after the journey, he fell asleep on Leon's lap even before he finished his feed. Poor thing! But he was an absolute angel as ever.
