Friday at last! I think it was never more welcomed an end of week, and month for that matter, as this one. Besides that we do have exciting things around the corner for this next September: staycation and my birthday. But we couldn’t start this time off (well, we will stick around the blog, no worries, ha!) without talking a little bit about how our August looked like via our more informal phone snapshots.
August for us meant family time, either in Madrid (we will be sharing our shots in Madrid soon) or at my hometown. But I was also able to have some only-girls tea date (long forgotten), have our yearly date with dear college friends and cultural outings. Also I was working from home meaning lots of girlzz time with my favorite kitten Ms. Juno.
I haven’t been to this wetlands area called “Aiguamolls de l’Empordà” since I was a little kiddo, I thought my nephew would enjoy it, but I think it even had a bigger impact on the adults. A part from the amazing fields we saw deers and lots of interesting birds.
Whenever my mom and aunt are together they are always like this, goofy sisters!. My auntie had an injury in her leg from which I hope she is recovered very soon.
My nephew Samuel is in love with the beach, that leg peeking out from the sea is him!
Here you have a better glimpse of the pedal boat that we rented, Samuel was a little sad to leave it after 1 hour, and kept saying how “the coolest thing now would be to rent it for another hour” :)
Me trying to sneak a picture from the boat of the two boys after using the slide.
Our favorite burger joint had a delish new one: barbecue ribs with toasted corn and marinade onion.
Homemade lemon juice popsicle made out of Monterosso lemons!
We visited Casa Amatller, a modernist house that is next to Gaudi’s most famous house (Batlló). Our friends Lucila and Eduard invited us to join them through the guided visit to the house and then we had dinner together at Shoronpo, a japanese restaurant (thanks Anna+Albert for the recommendation). A really nice afternoon!
The house had lots of details that, indulge me on this, look out of Hogwarts ;)
What were you up this August? Which plans do you have for September? Wish a nice labor weekend for all our US pals! and a nice regular weekend to all the rest ;)
