Visiting

|
Well, part of the long silence has been due to our long awaited trip to Britain. Philip and I have not visited family and friends in Scotland together ever (I know, that's shameful isn't it?) and since we have a little girl, we thought it was high time we got ourselves over for a visit.

We drove all the way over with my parents... yes, that was a little nuts, but at least we got to see my grandfather, aunts and uncles and as many of our friends as we could squeeze into our short visit.


Rafaela loved meeting all sorts of new people and even though she was exhausted, I think she did benefit from it... OK so she probably didn't benefit from the lollipop someone gave her...



Philip got to enjoy a brief paddle in the sea



While Rafaela napped on the beach


We went to Loch Lomond with friends


We have loads of pics of Rafaela sleeping in different places, here are a couple of our favourites..

The beanbag nap


The Luton Airport nap

When we got back, it wasn't long till her birthday. Rafaela was 1 year old and decided it was the perfect time to start walking. She's been walking a week now and she's realized how much more convenient it is than crawling. It's really fun to watch he go. We'll post pics soon.

Happy belated Birthday to a beautiful birthday girl! She's so cute:-)

good to hear you've had a great meet-up with the realtives. Somehow it seems even more important to do that once you get children...

Well Happy Birthday to the big girl! How exciting - sounds like a wonderful trip. I've never been, but supposedly I have distant cousins. I'd love to go.

Love the napping pics - especially the bean bag! HA HA!

It is too long since I looked at your blog - my computer is waiting for you to show it how to behave - but today I spent time and had a Rafaela 'fix'. It was lovely to see my littlest grandaughter (and her Mum and Dad) - thank you!
I have the urge to make my friends look at your blog but it is probably more diplomatic to wait 'til they can meet you all in person. Lots of love.
