Country mice! I couldn’t avoid this Modern Family reference for the title of our family gathering post this last weekend at Dani’s auntie country house.
While Dani’s family are quite a city crowd, her auntie Silvia is the lovely country gal instead. Long ago she decided to leave Barcelona for good to establish their lives on top of a mountain, with the company of vietnamese pigs, goats, trees and the stars. Big thumbs up for her, right?
Silvia’s husband works making props & sets for tv commercials & movies, this one was an African tent that he couldn’t get rid of and brought it back to their home.
Once a year the family has a countryside barbecue at Silvia’s place where we get to enjoy the lovely views on top of the mountain and some slow feeling (& goat smell!). We get to spend time with the family that are quite a crazy bunch, the little girls (isn’t Alba, Dani’s little cousin, a gorgeous Rapunzel?), doggies (they are definitely big dog lovers) and summery vibes. This time we had a secret mission, take portraits of every member of the family to make a photo album as a present for grandma’s near-ish 90th birthday – wooop such a milestone!. Although we are including here just a few bits, we managed to take them with the help of our conspirator partners.
This is Silvia, our hostess for the day, with her daughter Yasmin
Enjoyable views from the hammock.
The frog fountain & flowers reminds me of Andalusia, have you ever been there?
This is Dani’s brother with her beau Sara, cute couple!
There are currently only 2 dogs in Dani’s dad-side-family: Kala, the white & black frenzy and Negu a super calmed boxer.
Speaking of cute! These two will shortly make another appearance in the blog with a photo sess ;)
Here is Negu, the boxer, with his loooong tongue.
Silvia’s Vietnamese pigs are called Gus and Peggy, and are huuuuge. Do you know if this is the normal size for Vietnamese pigs? ha!
Our little Rapunzel was more than amused feeding the goats with the freshest green leaves.
Alpha male just doing his territorial pose, he had a strong character!
Hope you enjoyed this countryside post, we had a very hooooot day but nevertheless an amusing one. We are glad to introduce you some of the family!
