Peas in a pod

It started off pretty bad. The playground of choice was closed. Then our parents dragged us to a big rock that claims to be the center of the Netherlands.

image

A rock is no substitute for a playground!

Then our parents stopped at some Celtic fields, a farm that has been built as an interpretation of an Iron Age farm. Pfff. We stayed in the car.

Then we went to a different playground. Now we’re talking.

But the lady working there deflated the jumping castle within 5 minutes.

We put our socks and shoes back on.

image

Miko is getting pretty good at it!

Down the trail we found the climbing forest. And Tarek was tall enough for the kids trail!

image

He had to secure himself and loved it so much he did this trail twice.

Then we stopped at the garden as there were lots of

image

sweet peas and othe goodies. With potatoes from a local farm, only the veggie burgers were from the supermarket.

image

And this doesn’t even show the rucola salad or the amount of andive we gave to the neighbours. And tomorrow morning there will be berries for breakfast!

Testing a playground

Our parents have been keeping busy. They say we will move to a place called Boddegat and lots of other nice people will move there too. We have met many of those people and yes, they are nice. But where the 26 houses will be build is a bunch of trees now so we cannot move for a long time it seems. Today they took us to a place that’s like the Boddegat. They told us they wanted our opinion on the playground so we can get something similar for the Boddegat. We say yes to the homemade sandpit, big trampoline and of course we say YES to a waterpump!

image

We’re not sure our mum agrees because Miko stepped right into the pond that a created pumping, wearing her only pair of proper leather shoes. Pfff. The shoes were old anyway!
After the trip we had an improvised picnic lunch somewhere in Driebergen.

May Break May Break

First thing I did after dad went off to his chess tournament is grab my bike and cycle off. I’ve been doing a lot of that lately so my mum wasn’t worried. This time I stayed away so long Tarek and Maya came looking for me. And they found me where I usually go, this time with lots of other people though.

It was sunflower planting day in the neighborhood and I was helping out.

Fruit ‘n’ veg

Overnight all the dinosaurs became vegetarians.

‘Help me! I’m being squeezed by a giant piece of water melon!’

Another game, another player

After my parents convinced me that snoww is a reason to go outside I really enjoyed myself. Miko used Maya as a pulling horse.

image

The snow was perfect fo building sa snowman which I did almost by myself. Hein only helped after someone deliberately beheaded it.

image

In tthe background there were people dressed up as a Roman and an ancient Dutch fighter as the park is also a place of some archaeological finds.

image

But the most fun was when Rens came home with us and he, Hein and me played a game together.
