I still am not quite myself probably due to the temperature difference, it can't be a jet lag because there is only one hour difference and one hour had never bothered me. But I never experienced coming home from 30°C to minus 6 °.

Nevertheless it had been a nice weekend because my son and grandson came to visit us, but they stayed over night at my son's best friend's house because the two little boys wanted to play together of course. It also had snowed and they have a big property with a hill, where they could ride down with a sleigh.

After that they came over for lunch.

They played with dinosaur and built barns for them. From the slide ride they were quite hungry and had a real  good appetite

Mr G. had bought Easter eggs and Benji had never eaten a colored egg, it was really funny when they broke and pealed it.

Then they posed for Mr. G. with his Ferrari helmet and an Alpine hunter hat from the first world war from his uncle who was an Italian mountain soldier. I think Mr. G. had more fun then they had but they were very cooperative.

Then they returned to more interesting games letting fight the dinosaurs.

He also tried to make the same face as me

and we laughed because here he looks almost like me. When they were gone I played a little bit with this new appliance my son had found,

I made myself to a Hollywood star

and to a serial killer !

On Sunday the visit was quite short, my son slept a bit he was tired probably with too much chatting with his friend, not only women are chatterboxes.  Toby and I watched TV amongst others "Mr. Bean"

At 3.30 pm they returned home to Amsterdam and we to our TV !

I used to find that returning to our winter after being in a hot country, my blood was warmed, or something like that and I did feel the cold so much. Maybe Toby will look like you when he is older.

Goodness, isn't he getting tall! He will be taller than you before you know it!

I always find it hard to come back to the cold after so much heat. Your Grandson is growing up so quickly.

Perfect family visit. Fun to watch Toby grow... and he really does look like his grandmother! That is a good thing. That face app thingy seems like it would be fun. Isn't it amazing how kids take to technology as if they were born knowing all about it (I guess they almost were).

Well, I hope you're over the temperature difference and feeling more like yourself. It looks like you had lots of fun with your grandson.

Tamago said...

Sounds like you had really nice weekend! That face app looks so much fun :-)

Looks like those boys get on really well and have a lot of fun together. I hope it's getting warmer for you. It's much better in London this week.
