Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays! Been spending time with my family. Since Latvia is in lock down – we couldn’t meet my mom and brothers family this year. But we had nice Christmas Eve and beautiful white Christmas day. Christmas Eve, we started with an outdoor picnic together with Jānis family and huge campfire filled with potatoes, carrots and beets. It’s a thing […]

First picnic this year

This year’s first picnic was yesterday! It was windy and not at all sunny, cold and terrible… but I love nature and how it gives us energy! Our picnics are spontaneous, quick, environment-friendly, almost sugar-free and short. I don’t cook for hours and we don’t enjoy sitting in a picnic spot for hours. Also, I’m not sure if we ever […]

Saturdays Bike Ride

If there is a sunny day we have a bike ride. And those sunny days are rare this summer here in Latvia. My mom visited us and we decide to go for a small bike ride before dinner. Girls asked for a picnic and that wasn’t a problem, as usual, I packed in few minutes. We were ready for the […]

How to travel with kids

Now I have my head full of ideas what we need to pack, how we need to pack, what we need inside the car, what in the caravan. Where to go, how much km we can drive in one day, how to relax and how to entertain 3 kiddos. But when I’ll get home – I’ll get into “normal life” […]

Day 2 at Leidersbach: Laundry and Walk

We were woken up by bells of the church at 10 am. How do you like that!? At 10 am! We stayed for one more day in Leidersbach. The weather was so nice – not hot, not too sunny, cool and partly cloudy – not raining. That playground and horses I wrote about yesterday weren’t in our sight. Today we did […]

How to Pack for a Picnic in 5 Minutes

A spontaneous picnic is the one I’m talking about. Can you pack for such picnic in 5 minutes? All you need is quick, free from cooking, cutting and mixing lunch box ideas! Grab and go! Usually, we have our picnic in the nearest forest (only 10 km away from home & people) that belongs to Latvian State Forests. They restore forests and sometimes […]

Long day…

Today was a long, long, long day. I woke up at 7 am and went outside to catch a sunlight while girls were sleeping. After 20 minutes I went back in to check if Helmī is up and she was. Smiling like a sun from her crib! Good morning! After breakfast, we discovered that our car doesn’t have the right towing hitch! […]
