Amsterdam, was not really on the list for the weekend, but we both wanted to see it! Loved it and we are going back (without the kids next time). We went to a restaurant filled with noise and you couldn't even hear our kids! I loved the energy, the youth, the laughter, it was straight out of a movie. We sat next to a table of guys getting ready to go out for the night and every other word was an "F" bomb. For some reason I thought it was so funny! When other cultures say it, it is not offensive at all. I have no idea why.
Aside from their lively pub scene, they have amazing old buildings!
You knew I had to get the door picture!
After a day of exploring the city of Amsterdam, we headed to the seaside.
We stayed in a small town on the Nordic Sea and the tulip fields were a 15 minute drive. The actual park that we visited is called Keukenhof. I know that to some of you, tulips sound a bit lame, but this park even turned Jaylee around! At first she just wanted to "drop mom off". She has been drawing tulips ever since. So, yes my family was not thrilled to see the tulips, but they did it for me and I'm so happy that they did.
There are days that I would like to ditch my job as full time mom. There are days when I love my title. These are the times, when it is just us, that I am reminded how lucky and loved I am. Thank you Brandon for making this Mother's Day so special!
