Wurstelprater!








Images from Rafael's first trip to the Viennese amusement park 'Wurstelprater.' His eyes were wide the whole time. It was almost too much. We didn't stay long. But he loved that we went with his aunt and two cousins. 

I loved eating cotton candy again after years! 

It was such a perfect way to say farewell to summer. The most amazing summer I've ever had, because it was shared with my funny, sweet little boy!

Thank you for reading....I read and appreciate every comment. There haven't been many lately, and I wonder if it's because I'm so bad at responding. I hope you all know that I really love hearing from you, and if I don't answer, it's because I often check on my iphone...then I'm not signed in, and can't answer without being signed in, so then I always think, "I'll answer later when I'm signed in." Then days go by and I realize I once again haven't communicated to you how happy I am that you stopped by. 

So I'm saying it here: I am so happy that you stop by and take part in this journey of mine. Watching my little one grow up, sharing in my love for nature, comforting me through hardship and rejoicing in my blessings. Thank you! You are appreciated!

  1. I was so happy to read what you'd written today! It made me feel a tiny little personal connection with you, and even though your comments weren't directed at 'me', your words still created a link. So, "Thank You"! And after a long absence, there was a photo of you and Rafael together. You both look beautiful and radiant! I AM so happy for your happiness, Dawn!

    1. We would have loved that too. His favorite part was riding on the Lilliput Bahn.

  4. I've been reading your blog for some time now. Even though I don't comment--I enjoy your lovely photographs of your corner of the world. Your son is growing into a beautiful young man! Enjoy your last days of summer.

  5. Sorry for not having commented much. I have had so much tragedy in my life lately. Nov 10 I lost my husband of 35 years, 2 months ago a dear cousin who was like a brother to me died, and 3 weeks ago my lovely niece died at 36 years old leaving her 5 yr old daughter. It is so sad for that to happen.
    Raffi is grown so much and I can imagine how much he enjoyed all the new sights.
    I, too, LOVE cotton candy!

  6. There is so much for little ones to take in that is in the world around them. The amusement park is full of color and movement, quite appealing to a young one such as Raffi!
    Hugs,

  7. Thank YOU for your posts Dawn.
    They always leave me feeling happy and content.
    I've so enjoyed watching you evolve as a mama (and individual) ... your posts, whether they are about your walks, your recipes, health, happiness, country life... they make me happy.
    I'd love for you to write a bit about fashion and what you like. You always have such great style.

    Please do not worry :)
    We are here......still reading your blog :)
    I am also a mom of 20 months + baby boy. He is so naughty that i can not manage time to surf internet. I used to read all your posts, before being a mom. But now sometimes i just look at your pictures for not having so much time. Everything in your world is lovely. I wish to read all the missed post someday again when i will be able to manage some free time, you know it is tough ;)
    My love to Raffi.
    You also take care.

    Bye

  11. So nice to see a photo of you and your son together! Looks like you had a great time. I know what you mean about the comments ... I have a wonderful (small) group of loyal followers who always take time to leave a note and it means so much to me! Sometimes I do wish I'd hear from some readers who stop by but never leave a comment. I just have to know in my heart that there are many out there enjoying my blog. You should feel the same because we do enjoy reading your posts and looking at your great photos.

  12. Hi Dawn, so glad Rafael had a great time, it seems that both of you actually did :) I always come and check up on you guys, and I might not leave a comment, but wanted to let you know that I am always here, and that I love to see your little boy getting so big and handsome. Hope Fall brings you great memories as well, can't wait till next time.
