The Sunday Post #27 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you toΒ Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

I promised last week to share some vacation photos, so here are a few:

As you can see, we had a really good time, the food was amazing everywhere we went, and we had mild weather, with a little wind. I think what I enjoyed most of all – apart from the seaside – was the fact that all four kids were with us for a whole week, that doesn’t happen all that often anymore! And if someone has the time to teach me how to make those photos align correctly, I’d be very, very happy! I spent so much time on this, and in my edit post window, it looked great, but in view post it looked weird… Oh well, at least there are pictures, right?

  1. Glad you had an awesome vacation and a safe return. I’m in some serious envy at those pictures. I absolutely love being near water like that. So beautiful.

  2. I imagine Ashley would tell you how to get the pics to line up or you could download a gallery plug in. They are all lined up for me though. In html you could use a table format with margins and padding the same in each row and column; check www3 for the syntax.

  3. Sea and great food and family. The best combination! I had family in the past couple of weeks and had a grand time. It is hard to get everyone together. Looks like you had a fabulous time!

  4. Welcome home – that’s great you were able to have all the kids with you and had a lovely time. The pictures look great; I would love to get away somewhere nice right about now. πŸ™‚

  5. Lovely photos, I can see youΒ΄ve had a good time πŸ™‚
    Her i BrΓΈnnΓΈysund har vΓ¦ret vΓ¦rt litt bedre, sΓ₯ i dag har vi vΓ¦rt pΓ₯ fjelltur. Ønsker deg en flott kommende leseuke, klem fra Anette πŸ™‚

  6. I don’t think they lined up bad but I can see it taking a long time. If I remember tonight I will send you the CSS I use and the HTML for popping in pictures like I do with my books on my site. If I don’t send it remind me πŸ™‚

    Love those pictures it looks like such a great place to relax!

    Have a great week Lexxie πŸ™‚

  7. Oh all that food looks delicious! And it looks like a great place, great pictures! The look pretty nice to me, how did you plan to align them? I usually use code to align them, like class=”aligncenter” or you can use alignnone and then they go next to each other like you did now I think. It’s nice that all your kids were able to come with you on that vacation. Have a great week!

    • When the post was finally live, the photos aligned the way I wanted them to… but when I checked the post before it was published, they were all over the place πŸ™
      The food was so good! I can’t wait to go back this summer – but I need to make sure I’ll get some workouts included in my vacation too, if not I’ll come back home and not fit into any of my clothes πŸ™‚

  8. The food pictures are mouthwatering, but oh, that blue blue sea !!! Those pictures look aligned to me, at least now ? I had given up aligning pictures when I was on Blogger. Anyway I’m happy you had such a wonderful time with your family in such a heavenly place. It’s good to see you back, though πŸ˜‰

  9. Oh, that pictures are lovely, Lexxie. Thanks so much for sharing little of you vacation. πŸ™‚ I don’t look forward to the day when not all my kids vacation with us but I’m sure it’s coming sooner than later. We had a grand time shopping for dresses on Saturday. Berk needed one for Continuation so we shopped for that dress along with the prom dress. I’ll send the photo of Sky in her dress. πŸ™‚

    Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start! **BIG HUGS**

    • Yeah, those darned kids growing up so fast! It’s so strange that it’s a treat now if we’re actually all together for holidays, and at the same time, I guess it’s just normal.
      I can’t wait to see the pictures of the dresses πŸ˜€
      Only 29 more days! *BIG HUGS*
