Sitting with DaddyOn Saturday we went to a very small arts and crafts fair that was being put on in the church plaza, a block from our house. They had the usual assortment of jewelry, noise-making toys, untested medicinal grasses, and some animals. At about 13:00, we got a call from my in-laws saying that the five days since they’d seen Nora had been too much, and that they were coming to visit us. After lunch, we went for a family walk together.

Gummy Candies
Oh, and lots of candies.

Dangly Earrings
Earrings. The sign in the back says that bracelets with your name on them can be made on the spot.

It was a nice impromptu visit, and a generally very relaxed weekend. It’s a good thing, too, because next weekend we go on vacation!

  • i see from the photos that when you say “the in-laws” you mean the whole extended family… aunts, grandparents, great-grandparents etc! did they leave mondra in a convoy?

    • Yep. Five people came. They spent a half hour in a caravana in Bilbao, though, of course. When there’s good weather, the Basques come streaming across the border into Cantabria.

    in my experience the basque only go to your neck of the woods when the weather forecast is better over where you are…sun worshiping as it’s best
    in the case of your inlaws I have the feeling it has very little to do with the weather but a lot to do with a little someone 😉 5 days without seeing her is a long time I guess…like my mother would say…’es carne de mis carnes’ lol
