My dad already gave a brief introduction to this marvellous weekend. Of course, he forgot to mention the more essential parts.
It was my first trip abroad!!!

Upon arrival, there was a whole new territory for me to explore - how exciting.
Eileen showed me her little garden house her grandfather had built for her and said "Feel at home!"

I took this a bit too literally and redesigned the interior by removing everything that was inside. Now there was room to move :smile:

There were swamps for Mom and Dad but I prefer the little creeks to play in ...

That big river was very tempting. I would have dearly liked to jump in but Mom took care I didn't ...

.. something I could not agree on because a rafting tour over these fine cataracts a bit further downstream would have been lot of fun.

Being out in the wild for such a long time makes hungry. The maternal catering service worked perfectly so I decided to have a little picnic in a small forest glade.

And, there's nothing against a little afternoon nap.

While I was asleep, Dad made a shooting with model Eileen. Wait till I am old enough :biggrin:

On the evening of the last day, Dad borrowed a lens from Michael, something like a 105 DC or so. He told me something about the special rendition in portraits but I don't care as long as I look good. Now that I see the results I have to admit it would be nice if he got that lens for himself (although I know that Mom would not be happy about another piece of glass).
Anyway, I never knew that I am so pretty (or do the credits go to that lens?).

Dad obviously liked that lens very much, that's why I forgave him when he, for a change, captured Mom instead of me.

I hope you enjoyed my little travelogue.

Harry, these are wonderful.
I loved your travelogue through Nadja's eyes.
She's getting to be quite the young lady.

You and Michael may be bad influences on each other.
I remember how you tortured me with all your wonderful glass!

BTW, Now, I guess you'll have to build Nadja a playhouse too.

What a lovely post, Nadja!

It was a real experience spending these nice days with you and your Parents. :biggrin:



BTW:
I think I've discovered why your Daddy experiences his "decreasing" hairstyle.....

Oh dear Harry, you are going to have a big problem when Nadja reaches her teens.

She is beautiful, her parents are pretty good as well.

That gift is sensational - reflects a normal situation in a father-daughter relationship
I have watched the interaction between father and daughter for ages and it takes me back 41 years to when my own 1.1/2 year old daughter used to do the same to me. There is something wonderful about witnessing/experiencing the unconditional love that a child will give to a parent, and sometimes one forgets and therefore needs reminding again. This hits that spot with a vengence.

I can hear her squealing out with joy.:smile::smile:

Pat-a-cake, Pat-a-cake, my daddy's the man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Prick it and pat it and fill it with love.
As I am a present from heaven above.

LOL Bob and Pam
