We have quite a few photos of the girls, which is nice – but feel like there’s not enough videos of them. Although images are great and you can capture a lot of memories in them, videos show so many more nuances and emotions – and so much more life.
The sun was shining yesterday so we left the house earlyish before Matthew’s driving lesson and headed to the good old Botanics. I’ve replaced our old buggy with a second hand Bugaboo Cameleon so that we could fit a Bumprider buggy board at the back of the pram for easier transportation of my babies.
Anyone who’s got kids knows that you won’t feel comfortable going to just any restaurant for a meal anymore – it needs to be a place where you and your children are made to feel welcome, where there is a kids’ menu, where you can fit a buggy in and where there is some entertainment for the little ones. Baby changing facilities are important too!
Last Saturday we were supposed to visit Edinburgh Castle for free for St Andrew’s Day, but as we were already at the gate it turned out my booking had never gone through and there were no tickets…So instead we decided to finally visit Camera Obscura – a building consisting of five floors of optical illusions.
It’s crazy to think that this time next week there might be four of us! Fingers crossed that will be the case as ever since Saturday I’ve felt so much pressure that it’s difficult to walk and I’m wondering if I’ll make it to the due date (28.10)…Either way, thought I’d do a quick blog about our possibly last Saturday as a family of three!
As I mentioned in my last blog, my twin brother, his wife and Lana’s 2-year old cousin visited us last week for four full days – so that obviously requires a blog post! They’ve been planning to come to Edinburgh for a long time, but having recently built a house of their own I can totally understand why it’s taken a while!
On Saturday I reached 30 weeks in my second pregnancy and it all feels a bit surreal to think that there will be four of us in just 10 weeks…Eeek! I haven’t even started thinking about what we need to prepare for the baby…Anyway, on Sunday we decided to do something outdoorsy as there was no rain in the forecast (for a change) – so we got on the bus, got some amazing cakes and other foods and headed to Holyrood Park for a picnic.
Don’t know if it’s the terrible weather or me being pregnant and not having had the energy to venture into town on my own with Lana, but the Edinburgh Festival hasn’t really felt like a festival as much as in previous years. We have been to the old town and soaked up the Festival atmosphere during the past two weekends though, so I thought I’d take you with us on our day out on Sunday!
