First and foremost, I am sorry for being absent from posting for a few weeks. On our trip I was unable to charge my computer and phone so I could only use my tablet. However, that left me unable to upload my photos and all of our adventures went undocumented. Call it pregnancy brain, but bringing a converter for the wall plugs totally slipped my mind. Then Dani mentioned that a lot of times the different voltage destroys devices even with a converter, so I guess it was a good thing my computer didn’t explode. Adjusting back to this time change has been exhausting this past week as I have been working, keeping up with the little babe, and editing photos.
Anyways, here are some shots from our first few days in Holland! I loved it there, and I don’t think Isabella or Andres wanted to leave. Dennis and Dani live in a town outside of Amsterdam called Wilnis and they have chickens, baby chicks, and pidgeons all living in their backyard; not to mention they have a new, adorable Samoyed puppy, so our animal loving family (especially Isa who is obsessed with birds) was in heaven!
The shots above are from the day we landed, so we were all pretty exhausted. I wore this Sundry Clothing Tunic on the plane with leggings to stay nice and comfortable. I really am loving tunics while pregnant. They do a perfect job of covering up my hips, which seem to be widening at an unstoppable pace, plus they are looser fitting and very comfortable. This one is really soft also, so the comfort level is at a max.
Next stop: Amsterdam and the Heineken Brewery! Friday we travelled into Amsterdam and walked around the city. We originally wanted to go to the Anne Frank house, but there was at least a 3 and a half hour wait (Easter weekend is ironically an extra busy time to visit Anne Frank’s house). So, we headed to the Heineken Brewery, or should I call it, Andres’s dream job. This was so much fun! If anyone is going to be in Amsterdam check it out because they have so many fun activities and then you get some somewhat free beer at the end of the tour. They even had fun things for Isa to see and do, so it wasn’t just an “adult” experience so-to-speak. All of the copper that they have inside the brewery where they used to mix the ingredients made me want more copper in our kitchen – sorry Andres we will be adding that to our house soon! It was all so beautiful and shiny!
Stay tuned for more of our European adventures!
