yay, it’s vacation time! vacation changes when you have kids – like you can’t sleep long, you have to think about thousand of things, no long nights and so on but still it is vacation and you get different benefits out of it with kids you might have not gotten with out them. for many years we’ve been going to tuscany around siena in summer, it’s kinda a familiy tradition. it is just so beautiful there, i am really madly in love with it (i mean my husband and i got married there….) and my family from the states come there too every year so it’s so great because we get to see each other and our kids get the chance to bond. i love to have such a great big family so it is not only vacation time but also family time. that’s why i haven’t been here on itmums for some time now cause i am not only enjoying the time so much but hopping from one lunch to the next from one activity to the next. it’s a lot of chill time but also a lot of activity and get togethers. but i’ll try to still keep you posted here.
these are some images of our vacation and i want to tell a little anecdote to the last one where i am jumping into the dagino which is an amazing river in the middle of nowhere and it’s so amazing cause it’s a little piece of untouched nature and you are very private there. so i was standing on top of that cliff and you have to know i have a huge fear of heights but i kinda wanted to jump in there but my knees where shaking and you have to be careful to jump into the deep part and not where the big rocks are. so i’m standing there actually ready to say that i can’t do it but then i look over to my daughter who is sitting on my aunts lap in the little waterfall cheering up : “mama, mama, mama, jump!” so what did i have to do? obviously jump! and it felt so good! and then i did it over and over again cause it was so much fun. so my little two and a half got me over my fear and i just thought it is another great example of showing how much power your little ones can give you and make you do things you thought you couldn’t. so i wanted to share it with you. now back to vacation buisness
