A week in the dandelions

We just came back from a week in the dandelions. We ran threw them, rolled in them and even ate them. We made necklaces, clipped them in our hair and even made dandelion syrop. Our shoes got stained, our eyes are still seeing visions of yellow.

Imagine this: great friends, amazing food appearing every night, rolling hills of yellow and green, trees in full blossom, kids taking care of kids…  That’s exactly what our week was like.  I was going to say the best part was: xxx but actually it was all “the best part”.  How great is it to be somewhere where the kids entertain themselves all day outside. The bigger kids took care of the little ones, not because anyone asked but because they wanted to.  My youngest hardly put any feet on the ground as she was carried from place to place by the “teens” and had a new hair-style every hour.   In fact, one day when I actually thought about making lunch for my kids, she looked at my and said: “Mo-om, I already HAD a picnic…”. Oh…

Every night someone took charge of cooking & cocktails. Do you know that there are some people that actually love to cook? I was happy to chop and help and was usually provided with a glass of something to sweeten the deal.  For 6 nights, we ate amazing food that I didn’t make myself.  How great is that?

Now we are back and I’m cooking my regular weekly repertoire longing already for next year’s feast…
