Water fun and BBQ

Su 22-Jul-2012: Since last Friday Danique has 6 weeks summer vacation. The past weeks felt like fall, with temperatures just around 15 degrees. Sometimes even less. But since yesterday temperatures were rising and today we had 22 degrees. Rein, Deborah, Tessa and Mitchell were visiting and we asked them to bring their swim suites. We pulled out our inflatable swimming pool, the water pistols and the rocket water fountain … water fun for kids. In the afternoon we served a bbq dinner. See pictures below, click on each of them to enlarge.

A little bit of summer

Danique’s first school trip

Th 05-Jul-2012 08.30-14.00: Danique’s class went on a school trip to camping Woensberg in Blaricum. The class had to walk to the destination via the animal farm. They had to bring their favourite toy or doll and a blanket. So they could sleep in the tents. Their activities were blindfolded tasting, tree climbing, camping and … eating ice creams. At the end the kids were all picked up by their parents.

At the Laren fair

When the rain showers had disappeared, we enjoyed the fair in Laren with lots of prices for Danique.
