July in Croatia~ back home for two weeks

This last photo sums up my two weeks in Croatia this past summer: Total relaxation.

It has been almost two years since we moved back to the States, yet I felt right at home! 
Hopefully I can get back to regular blogging in a couple of  weeks and can share more about our summer. Beli had a blast! And I have more, more pictures to share.
Have a wonderful week my friends!

Pink Flowers and planning a trip to Croatia

A few days ago we invited our good friends to visit us for an afternoon lunch.  She brought these beautiful flowers from her garden!

 It was a wonderful day as we reminisced about their previous trip to Croatia. 

And speaking of Croatia, next week Beli and I will be flying overseas to visit Baka and Dida. It's been over 2 years since we moved back from Croatia and we are due for a visit!

 Beli doesn't remember much about her life overseas. Then again she was only 2 1/2 years old.

I on the other hand, am  overwhelmed with happiness to return to my 
old 'hometown'. 

Everything is going well with my pregnancy and the doctor has cleared me for flying. Only an 18 1/2 hour trip. But  it will all be worth it when we land in Split and I see the crystal blue sea. Ah I really need a vacation! Heheee

Baby tomato plants in egg shells

Looks like winter weather is finally over ( I hope) and 
today should be very warm and  the perfect day to work on my balcony garden. 

A few weeks ago I planted my tomato seeds in empty egg shells and 
I'm still amazed at how fast they grow.

Isn't mother nature amazing?

In addition to tomato plants, I would also like to have basil, oregano, jalapenos and lots of flowers,
I just think being in touch with nature makes you happier, if that makes sense?

Oh, and while we are on the topic of baby tomato plants,
I am too growing a baby.
Beli is super excited about being a Big Sister!
Actually we are all very happy about this new family
member that will be joining us this Fall.
Another reason for being Thankful!

Birthday celebration and lots of cake~

My precious Beli turns 5!
She is in such a hurry to grow up that if you ask her how old she is, 
her reply is, " I'm seven!"

But to us she is still our precious little girl.

We had two celebrations. Last month we traveled to Iowa to spend a weekend with my family.
Beli was confused if it was really her birthday.
Then we celebrated again this past Sunday.

I came across this carrot cheesecake recipe while reading my friend's blog, Loveaffair
and I thought it would be perfect for Beli's birthday.
To my dismay, Beli didn't like the carrot cheesecake, so hubby went and purchased a small cake from the grocery store. 

You can find the English version of the recipe, here

Some days, she is camera shy.

This was in Iowa. 

Showing off some of her artwork. 

Feliz Cumpleanos mi nina preciosa~ 
Happy birthday my precious girl.

Downtown Denver~

This weekend we left the comfort of our suburb community to drive into the city. It's about a half hour drive, (not that bad ) but always fun to say "let's go into the city!" 

Beli asked where we were going and we told her the museum.
Every first Saturday of the month the Denver Art Museum has free admission for residents of Colorado.
As you can image it was a busy day.
Does your city host something similar?

She was not very happy about me taking a picture of her.

We spent most of our time in the Family Fun Center. 
Then the Cafe on the main floor. As Hubby and I  were sipping coffee,  Beli was watching some kids's show on TV of dogs cooking. ( but somehow humans were doing the cooking??) it was strangely funny! You can see a link of the video here. 

  Making a project

Beli wanted to play with the snow, it was sunny but still cold.

And the building below is where hubby is taking a night class. 
Once a week he makes the drive out here to attend a course for this MBA.
We miss him at dinner time when it's just Beli and I.
Beli thinks it's quite funny that Daddy is going to school, because he is a big person she argues.

And that was our weekend.
How was yours?
