Animal cards with letters

I don’t know about You, but in our family slicing a pumpkin means dividing it between all family members and friends (without taking “no” for an answer) and looking for new recipes how to cook it tasty.

4 quiet activities #1


What do you do during baby’s naps? Clean your home? Cook? Or you are smarter than that and you take a nap also? Workout, make a manicure, read a book, watch your favorite tv-series… I want to say, that most important is to do something for yourself, whatever it is.

Mini Zoo / Camel and Llama farm “Rakši”


Few weeks before the first snow we attended one other mini Zoo – camel and llama farm “Rakši” near Cēsis.
