Mini Vacation Part 1

We took our first mini vacation as a family of 4 last weekend.

We visited Gyula a small city in south-eastern Hungary.

We went to see the Castle Spa:

Blackberry #2 was brave enough to slide down this huge slide (in his Daddy’s lap ofcouse)

Blackberry #2 had his first spa experience. The water is brown, because it is thermal water that contains sulphur.:

Blackberry #1 rode a Harley, a must for all men:) :

Did you have a mini vacation somewhere nice this summer?

 

 

 

August 20th

August 20th is the foundation of the Hungarian state by Saint Stephen, celebrated as a National Day in Hungary.

It also means 2 things: fireworks and the debute of the cake of the country (each year they choose a new one).

This year the choosen cake is: a honey-walnut cake.

Image

Ofcourse every year I have to taste the cake as soon as possible:) I have to say this years choice is a real winner!

We also went out for pizza.

Blackberry #1 loves lemonade.

and pizza.

Image

After pizza we went for a long walk and saw a yurt, then we had to jum-jump on the bouncy castle.

Image

ImageWe waited and waited for the fireworks at 9pm, but it was cancelled because of the strong winds:(

What is your favorite national holiday?
