We are back from Amsterdam and almost back to a normal schedule (almost a week later). We had a fantastic time with our friends in Holland. We hung out in the city, took day trips to a village of windmills and an amazing botanical garden (the tulips are in bloom!) and saw a cheese auction in a small northern town. The weather was cold but sunny (I think that's all you can possibly ask of Amsterdam)... The kids got along GREAT. I was still sick and Alex of course got sick but all in all it was a great trip. It feels like an accomplishment to have taken two small children to Europe! Now... where should we go next!?
36 year old mother to 6 1/2 year old Talia, 3 yr old Alex, and 7 month old Shayna. I retired from Pediatric Intensive Care Nursing in 2007. My family moved from Philadelphia to Madison, Wisconsin in July 07. I love to craft, quilt, cook and read. Spending time with my kids is ok too! In the last few years I've gotten into green living by trying to eat local, compost, cloth diaper and garden. As a family we are enjoying exploring Madison and transitioning from being East Coast people to Midwesterners. (Updated 09/10)
