Get ready for another avalanche of photos from yet another family day trip! This time we got on First Bus 27 that took us to Jupiter Artland in Wilkieston – a huge outdoor park dotted with the most interesting artworks. I was so excited to finally be there as I’ve been wanting to visit for ages!
This morning I took Lana to a local playgroup with only wooden toys that she likes going to. Today was not her lucky day though as she got scratched in the face by a little girl and then by a little boy and we ended up leaving the playgroup with a Lana who looked like she’d been in a fight. Kids can be so brutal! Luckily she didn’t seem too phased about the whole thing (I on the other hand felt like slapping the two kids)!
A few weeks ago we visited a pop-up expo consisting of pavilions designed by five different European cities. The expo was a part of the Scotland-wide Festival of Architecture that is celebrated throughout 2016 with various different events, exhibitions, tours and walks. Whilst there I realised that my outfit reflected the earthy colours of the wood, so I asked Matthew to take a few photos.
It’s finally happened; summer is here! Well for only one day for now as it’ll be raining all day tomorrow according to the weather forecast…But I’m grateful that we’ve had a much needed sunny and warm day on the beach – I actually think this has been the warmest day I’ve experienced during my 3+ years in the Burgh! (+25 degrees haha)
We usually take it pretty easy on weekend mornings, but last Sunday we were out the door at 9.30am! We were picked up by our friends and drove to Lauriston Castle, a 16-century tower house just a 15-minute ride away. The weather wasn’t great, but at least it didn’t rain (I’m starting to be really, really sick of this non-summery weather here – the other week I had to get out Lana’s winter coat because it was so chilly)!
One of my highlights of our Mallorca holiday was visiting beautiful Alcúdia Old Town. It was such a peaceful and quiet place in comparison to the busy beach, with gorgeous terracotta buildings and interesting old doors and windows. We walked there from Puerto Alcúdia, which took us around half an hour – but there are also buses.
Matthew’s watching the Euro 2016 final (which he says is the worst game of football he’s ever seen btw), so it’s a good time to finally do a blog post about our holiday in Alcudia, Mallorca! This was our first real family holiday if you don’t count all the trips to Finland we’ve made – pretty exciting in other words.
