On A Hot Summer Day

A sweltering hot Saturday. Rafael has begun pulling himself around and is so excited about it. It's the beginning of a whole new and a bit exhausting for both of us!

Wishing you all sunshine and someone to enjoy it with!



  1. Lovely Summer photos and colours. I noticed you childs calender toy is in
    German whic prompted a question. Do you speak to Rafael in German/Austrian or in English mostly? I imagine you want to teach him both but was just interested. My parents mostly spoke German at home until we started school. So I learnt both languages before five. Its such a bonus to have two languages and cultures to draw from for little minds isn't it.

  2. Hello!
    My husband and I speak English with each other, and I speak English with Rafael when we are alone. However, when we are with German-speaking family and friends, I speak German with him, out of courtesy to the other people, so that they understand me.
    I hope he will pick up on the English!
    Thanks for your visit. :)

  3. Oh Dawn...what lovely photos,sure looks like you have had a "hot" day. But Rafael sure was enjoying it in the tub.

  7. What a happy little boy you have, love his sweet little smile! Seems like the two of you are surely enjoying summer.

  8. I have fallen out of touch with my favorite blogs twin girls turned one last week!!!...and now I am enjoying catching up on your beautiful summer and charming son. Loved your recent post on feminine curves, important to read after the body changing experience of pregnancy!!! Hope all is swell!

  9. I just love your deck! And your fence is so nice, it looks completely safe for kids. Raffi can roam a little and you don't need to be right behind him.

    Thanks for sharing!
