Compte à rebours avant la rentrée / Countdown before going back to school

Plus que quelques jours... et un tas de choses à préparer. Alors avant ça on en a profité pour faire une journée de détente à Cigoland qu'on ne connaissait pas
Only a few days left... and lots of things to do. So before D Day we had a fun day at Cigoland (litterally Storkland) - a park we didn't know about

(C'est Laure et moi qui sommes dans cette cigogne ! That's Laure and me waving from this stork !)

Puis une promenade avec les cousins au château de Leymen où nous étions déjà avec Ray (c'était assez long, il faut descendre à la partie après l'anniversaire d'Elise) ; voici une autre perspective

Then we went for a walk with Elise and Laure's cousins and grandparents to the Leymen castle, where we already had been with Ray (it's a long post, scroll down after Elise's birthday); here is a different perspective on the castle

Laure ne veut pas qu'on la prenne en photo / Laure doesn't want to have her picture takenSauf quand elle est portée par sa cousine / unless she's on her cousin's back
Mais pour Elise, qui est plus grande et plus lourde, c'est moins confortable !! / But Elise being taller and heavier, it's less comfortable !!

Nous avons également tenté différentes dispositions pour la couverture de bébé, avec l'aide d'Elise. ... and we tried different layouts for the baby quilt, with Elise's help
Voici nos différents essais ; here are the different things we came up with La nuit portera conseil et demain je verrai ce qui me plaît le mieux. I'll sleep on it and tomorrow I'll make up my mind as to which I like best.

Hi Carole!
It is a pretty quilt! From all the ideas you both came up to, I like the second one. Thanks for the comment about the bag! The wrist pincushion is attached (sewed per hand) to a band. Maybe I should take another picture of it so you can see it better. If I could I would send you a lot of time!....Have a lovely week!
