Moments | Welcome Spring!

We woke up to a bedroom full of light, and giggling as someone was preparing something in the kitchen. It was Sunday and Father's Day, and my best guess was that M was up trying to arrange a breakfast for her Dad. I looked at the clock on the bedside table and it glared back tiredly at me saying 7.30. Ugh! Too early, and probably not a good time to surprise the heavy sleeping Dad with a breakfast ala 7 year old. I must have dozed off again because a few minutes later I woke up with a jolt only to find M staring at me from about 3 cm distance to my face. A concerned look was on her face and she whispered that the milk was out. I sleepily walked out into the kitchen to see a tray filled with all sorts of fridge left overs. Mmmm... mandarin mixed with olives,  a bowl of slightly soggy cereal, a plate with some ham spread across, a bowl of peanuts topped with two cheezles eyes, and a glass of orange juice. The pride beamed clearly on M's face and I didn't have the heart to tell her that perhaps this wasn't the most appetizing morning meal. Instead we snuggled up in the couch and waited for the time to approach a more reasonable waking hour for Dad. While we waited I put the coffee on, threw  some croissants in the oven and added it to the tray (the rest he would have to pretend to eat ;) 

The morning continued with a bed breakfast for Dad, some exciting Father's Day presents from the kids and a discussion on where we should celebrate the day, which were shaping up to be a really nice and sunny day. We decided to head to a little bay not too far from us, which we had found a week earlier. There we had found some lovely cliffs, amazing little beaches and wonderful green hills. We bought food to bring, packed a bottle of rosé wine and lemonade and off we went. It was such a good decision because we had wonderful day there. For the first time in many months the kids could wear summery clothes without being cold and it truly felt like Spring has arrived for real. To celebrate the warmer weather the kids jumped into their new summer gear from Minti. I couldn't resist these outfits from their latest collection which I found at Buckets and Spades, and it truly was the best Sunday outfit!

We can't wait to have many more sunny weekends and hopefully the warmer weather is here to stay... I hope all of you who celebrated Father's Day out there got a good chance to spoil the Dads and have some special family time as well, we sure did.
