It’s my mum’s birthday today. We went to the allotment to pick pumpkins and sunflowers.


The pumpkin you see is one of three that will be converted into soup.

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.


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.


Miko is getting pretty good at it!

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


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


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


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!

Permanent residence

See all the holes that have been filled?


See the first residents? Tareks craftmanship is being appreciated!

Long weekend pt II

On the second day of the long weekend, Tarek ran off to spend the day at a campsite with his friend Jasper and Jaspers family. Dad, mum and I were outside all day in the garden and on the allotment. Spinach for dinner, lets go home!
