Opa en oma

Druk druk druk

We had a busy weekend. So busy Maya forgot to take photographs for most of it.
We started Saturday with a discussion on dilemma’s. Then we quickly made plans and acted on them. First to the pool where we met two of Tareks former classmate and a former colleague of Maya.
One of Tareks friends is called Maud. She is super sweet and caring. Miko talked about Maud for the rest of the afternoon (‘Mau Mau Mau’).

After a quick shopping spree we went home to prepare for the rest of our day: Maya ran off to Amersfoort for dinner with Nanja while the rest of us drove to Wekerom to spend a very long evening with Verla-Norah, Norther and their parents. Great fun, a late night and thus…
We treated Hein and Maya to a lie in! Happy happy joy joy.

Sunday there was another bbq party, this time with Tareks new classmates. We cycled to Lunteren.

After some lovely food,  a lot of playing, ice cream and chatting with new friends Hein decided on a detour. He saw some interesting things on the map.
Zo kom je nog eens ergens.

Miko was happy to be able to run up a hill.

Back at home it was time to Skype.

We were tired but not too tired for….

Opa and Oma!

Weekend getaway

image

Hein and Maya picked us up early from afterschool playgroup so we could drive to Opa and Oma. But we didn’t stay in their house, we stayed on a field close to their home. And Rens, Thomas, Sam and Gijs also came with their parents. They stayed in the blue tent. And did we have fun?

image

Lots of fun.

image

Loads of fun.

image

Tons of fun.

image

So much fun that even Miko joined us in the pool.

Reunited

As if we weren’t having enough fun already, Opa and Oma arrived today! Even more fun to be had. Starting with a splendid dinner in the evening sun.
My brother got so excited he could hardly sleep. He has declared he wants to stay in Portugal. I still miss Ma (Max), Pétje (Peter) and Mam (Juf Martha). But Opa, Oma, Hein and Maya aren’t too bad to hang out with. And Tarek is my safety net…  whenever he enjoys himself, I have a pretty good time myself.

Out and about

Christmas break would not be complete without a visit to Opa & Oma. The weather was windy,  the museum was closed. It didn’t matter because we had a great time regardless.

image

Building a hut (and eating our oliebollen in there!).

image

Going on walks despite the weather.

image

And consuming lots and lots of Opa & Oma made treats!

By the time we returned home we were absolutely exhausted.

Our holidays

A refreshing walk/cycle before the guests arrive.

Picking some fresh herbs for tonights dinner.

Getting ready for some good food at a beautifully laid table.

A lovely dessert.

The next day we went to Amsterdam where we met up with some more members of Mayas family.

Quite some more……
