Spring time trips to Tõrva and to the beach

During the spring break we visited my dad and grandma in Tõrva. There is a cool tower to jump off from. This lake is 5 minutes from my grandma´s house. I spent every day there when I was younger. Like literally lived there. Even when there were thunder storms, rain. That is where I became a pretty good swimmer and diver. 

Visiting relatives is always difficult because there is so much pressure with little kids. Like if I discipline them right according to ....... (add your own standards and habits and ideals). Sometimes people forget, when they get older and there are not many new babies born and not many kids around all the time, that kids are energetic, crazy, busy and move constantly, trying to touch every single possible item even if you have told them 25 times that they cannot do that. I just wish there are more kids around so that mine do not stand out so much. Lately I had a talk with a mom about how every parent thinks that their kid is the most energetic one, their kid is the most aggressive one, their kid has the most issues with behavior etc etc. And no wonder they think that because people around us do not say often that it is OK, that is what kids do or been there, done that. So my point is - people should take it easy, be supportive, be encouraging instead of judge-mental, especially in their own family. 

The kids love to climb, especially now when it is not freezing cold any more. Man, spring comes late here. It just snowed today and has been snowing past week, like every day. It melts fast but still. Super cold wind too. Yesterday was nice after a nasty rain pour and we went to the beach.

Here are some of the beach photos:

Our kids were just rolling on the ground like they have never seen it. But if you think about it then that is true, it has been nasty cold and muddy and wet and snowy for the past 6 months.

They were playing horses:

The younger one was sitting on the rock, contemplating. Love this photo:

And finally a forest shot, sun setting on the trees:
