Barcelona and a wedgie

When our friends arrived we had a lovely dinner of local meats and cheeses, fresh bread from our local bakery, plus the local Cava - or champagne. The Catalans drink this at the drop of a hat. Oh! It's the third anniversary since I bought my purple bikini! Lets have some Cava!

This bottle looks uncomfy though don't you think?

It didn't have the usual cage, instead this is the ultimate wedgie.

*cringe*



We also went off the the Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera with our buds, we brought drawing books. This is one of the guest's efforts from the top of the Pedrera...



Eldest was inspired by all the lizards and dragons on the Sagrada Familia....



Youngest's oevre from the top of the Pedrera....



And a photo of the roof for you from the bumph we got so you can compare.



It's an amazing place. If you get the chance to go, it is well worth it.

After having finally seen your artistic talent in your previous post, I now realize where your daughters got their talent.
Wonderful sketches.

(And, yes, that looks like the ultimate wedgie on the wine bottle. Ouch.)
