Simply Weekend


The cyclist, le cycliste, syklisten, o ciclista, der radfahrer, biciklist, 骑车人, ο ποδηλάτης, il ciclista, el ciclista...

Let me just take a moment to celebrate that Spring is coming to this side of the world, I'm certainly so excited I can't even type properly. This weekend the sun finally peeked through the clouds and we're currently enjoying a nice warm breeze...
I'm super happy because now I can share outdoors activities with my kids that they seem to enjoy so much, specially when it comes to biking.
Déjenme tomarme un momento para celebrar la Primavera que está por llegar a este lado del mundo, estoy tan emocionada que apenas puedo "tipear" propiamente. Este fin de semana el sol finalmente se asomó entre las nubes y estamos disfrutando de una agradable brisa cálida...
Estoy super contenta porque ahora podemos compartir las actividades al aire libre que mis chicos disfrutan tanto, especialmente si se trata de andar en bicicleta.



And this Saturday Luka faced a major challenge riding his bicycle without those small training wheels for the first time. Fortunately, his dad, brother and me were there to support him (or catch him!) so it all turned out okay.
Y este sábado Luka enfrentó un gran desafío montando su bicicleta sin ruedas de entrenamiento por primera vez. 
Afortunadamente, su papá, su hermano y yo estuvimos ahí para apoyarlo (o atraparlo!) así que todo resultó perfecto.



Esteban, aka "best big brother of the world" helped with the proper encouragement and demonstrations, and me...ME? Ok, I was terrified!...I could't let him go!...there wasn't too much help from my side...(and yep! it is very difficult to maintain the hairdo while running behind a bike!)
Esteban, alias "el mejor hermano del mundo" ayudó con los adecuados estímulos y demostraciones, y yo...¿YO? Bueno, ¡yo estaba aterrorizada!...¡No podía soltarlo!...no hubo mucha ayuda de mi lado...( y ¡sip! ¡es muy difícil mantener el peinado cuando estás corriendo detrás de una bicicleta!)




As you may have noticed, it was a huge deal but luckily Luky managed to master this skill (with some tiny difficulties but who's counting?)
Como habrán notado, fue un gran desafío pero afortunadamente Luky consiguió dominar esta habilidad (con algunas pequeñísimas dificultades pero ¿Quién está contando?)

Going for a walk around the neighborhood or riding the bike on the beach are one of the things that I most look forward for the warm afternoons next month. 
Salir a caminar por el barrio o andar en bicicleta por la playa durante las tardes cálidas son algunas de las cosas que espero con más ilusión para mes que viene.

"Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving." Albert Einstein
 " La vida es como andar en bicicleta, para mantener el equilibrio, tienes que seguir adelante." Albert Einstein



Ready for September?
What are your plans for the next month?

¿Estás listo/a para Septiembre?
¿Tienes planes para el próximo mes?


Big hugs!
¡Abrazos!

  12. Sounds like a stressful day indeed. You remind me of my own mom - she can be a little tense about things at times. Anyway, it's so cute of your family to support your son. Hope he gets better with biking! Following on Bloglovin too. :)

  25. Uh-oh, that means autumn is on it's way here (and I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer yet)! You have such a beautiful family! I remember the day that my training wheels came off, I face planted straight into the tar, it's no wonder I ever got on a bike again! Congrats to the little one for getting through this milestone!

  26. Always a little scary when those little wheels come off! Cute photos. I've just been reading the Einstein quote in a book I'm reading at the moment!
