We're going on a tadpoles hunt !

We wrote a brand new book yesterday ( for those who knows the book ) . We started by a classic barbecue full of good food and great weather !!!

I took advantage to take a lot of pictures :

But the real fun started when we went on our big adventure It's not far away from my mom's house but for a kid, if you have to take your bicycle, it's like going to a long hike And let me tell you , they were ready for some actions: the night before, they had prepared a towel to go to the river and a landing net. My parents joined us as well as a neighbor's kid.

Here is Chuy trying to catch some tadpoles:

We got one! Can you feel the excitement? Emma trying her luck:Esteban trying to have his dad take a bath

If you put your face into the water, do the tadpoles go to the landing net by themselves?

We got lucky !!! Let's go home with our treasure:

The tadpoles new home:

Pierre even catched a fish with the net!

I decided to weight myself on mondays and today, I lost 800 grammes (1.76 pounds) That's the proof, exercising does really work because I was watching what I eat but not extremly carefuly ... It's a small lost but a great start for me

I still working on my yellow curtain. It's getting boring even though I like the yellows. I try to choose one color and stitch 2 or 3 threads of it , then change for another one. Next to the yellow curtain, there is also plenty of dark colors so I try to alternate soft and dark colors. ( but I'm getting bored anyway )

I stitched during Steb's nap yesterday at my mom's. I had brought my Vera the mouse by Lanarte (my special small project)

Today is the last day of our small vacation thanks for the holidays !!! we are getting used to It was a little vacation before the summer vacations in july. And let's not forget how lucky we are to have had a summer like weather

Wonderful photos Chiloe:) It looks like everyone had a great time.

Nice progress on both your pieces.

Congratulations on your weight loss. I wish I could loose some. I get quite depressed over it. I started yoga a few weeks ago and now I haven't done it for a week because I started to feel sick and off balance and haven't dared try it again since. Feeling a bit better today so might have a go at just a few moves.

Wonderful pictures Chiloe, it looks like an amazing day.

Love the tadpole hunt, what happens when the turn into frogs?

Your stitching is progressing really well. Know what you mean about getting bored with the one colour. I'm feeling that way about my blue border.

Those pictures are so pretty Chiloe and I am so glad that you had a good time catching Tad Poles...that looks so much fun to do too. It's always fun to do something like that with your family.

Your WIP's are looking so beautiful...that is what I do...I switched between light colors and dark colors or I change areas and that way I don't get so bored. Mind you I am still stitching away on Noah's Sub. I have a updated progress picture of Noah's Sub on my Blog.

Take care & Happy Stitching
