A little warmth and sunshine is SO welcoming to us here up north. I've almost started to build a depression because of the horrible summer we're having this year! No sun, no warmth. And it's so desperately needed after long and dark winters. Well, enough with the complaining! Al least today we had a taste of summer, just have to enjoy it while it lasts!

D looks skeptical here, it must be the strange, unknown, bright thing in the sky!
Oh, by the way- my hair is red now! Just like my sis and my boys!!

Milo Dakota Donatello

We love this little man, but when summer and vacation time comes, he creates a little problem for us. All of our family members (the grown ups at least) have become allergic to him! It's itching all over and sneezing, runny noses and eyes. So in order for us to have a vacation, this fella needs to stay in a hotel for cats. Luckily there are a couple not too far from here. But any hotel isn't good enough for our precious Milo. We want him to be a happy cat at the end of the summer! Thankfully we've found a nice place where they genuinely love cats. He gets his own room (not a cage) with a cat door that leads to an outdoor area just for him, with branches and grass, and he's able to see the other cats as well. Also he gets cuddled at least a couple times a day. So we leave him there with a clear conscience, knowing that he is well taken care of!

sweet darlings

The other night Abel and I went to visit my sister and her boys. They have a jacuzzi, so the boys decided to take a nice bath! They have regulated the temperature, so the boys were in there for quite a while! And Hauk brought with him his favorite toys.

This little guy has an obsession with elks and reindeers and animals with big, gig horns!

A tiny cake

Yesterday I brought the boys to a cafe in town called Fairytale cupcakes. Yes, it is just like it seems: Pink, girly and sweet! But they have the best cupcakes! Falk was a little sceptical about all the butterflies and the pink and purple interiors, but we enjoyed ourselves a lot!

Sister <3
Met up with these two lovelies last night. The sun was shining until 11pm, we drank wine and laughed and talked. Loving those long summer nights...

Turning two!

This little wonder of a boy just celebrated his birthday. It was a fine day with lots of grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousines! We had a great day eating good food, jumping on the trampoline, walking on a line (difficult!), talking and playing. Just as a birthday should be!
Birthday boy! Love!

This was difficult!
