Things To Do With Kids – Traveling

Last month my children landed in Moscow wearing a perfect shade of San Francisco Pale on their skins. These city kids were raised where outside requires constant adult supervision, they had only minor encounters with nice weather, and were yet to experience a water or electricity outage.

In 3 weeks they were completely transformed into tan Russian-speaking sun-loving kids who had a bite of freedom and lots of bites of freshly grown produce right outside of their great- grandmother’s house!

Their only swimming experience up till now was in a heated pool. I don’t quite get it, but apparently swimming in a river with cousins, fish, ducks and frogs is much more fun!

 

Grandma’s garden was an endless source of entertainment and nourishment. Apples, cherries, currant, strawberries – and that’s just the begging of the list. The kids had a blast playing in all this lusciousness!

They even found it cool to be washed outside with water heated up by sun.

Though, you should have seen my son’s excitement when he got back home and went to the bathroom: “Есть вода!” (The water is on)! Hmmmm….

 

Here are some Instagram favorites from the trip. Enjoy!

2011 Instagram Favorites – Lil’ Jem and the fam

In a fruitless attempt of realizing some unfulfilled dream of his, my husband is growing Lil’ Jem’s hair.  He declared himself the sole person responsible for Jem’s Hair Plan.  

Mr. Big Hair Man.  Oh, little did I know that those days would go down in history as “short hair” days…

2011 Instagram Favorites – baby Pea

My baby girl changed so much this year from this little bundle of lovin’ to the cutest toddler on Earth (coming from the most unbiased mother).  I guess this was the year of hats!.. or the year of mostly bold… ;-) Smooching my laptop screen right now!
