Today we were going to bring son #3 to my PIL, but I decided it would be fun to first visit a museum, so we visited Museon in The Hague. It is sort of a general museum, with all sorts of displays, dinos, human body, sience, nature, etc. And it is very interactive for kids, very handson, so the boys like that sort of museums.
The boys were allowed to take part in a workshop to make a disco robot. OK, our youngest needed some help, but they all enjoyed it.
The guy that explained everything did it very well and the boys listened, so it all worked out well and they all went jome with a working discobot.
OK, this way it doesnt look like much, but the disk was attached to the brush and when you turn the bot on, it dances on the brush and it has lights...
And here it is, OK, it was to fast to capture on pic, but it looked great. My only though now is... what will they hack next?
And we received news tonight that son # 3 lost his last front tooth...Well lost... he hit it against his toy truck...
DH and I planned a day off with a nice breakfast, but it turned out that the kids also had a day off, so we reserved breakfast for all off us and decided to turn the day in a family day. We chose a small restaurant that served breakfast at the Vrijdagmarkt.
This is a market where they sell stuff that was confiscated. It is sold by bidding, and it is fun to watch the proceedings and I wanted to show DH and the kids.
Our oldest asked if he could go out and watch the proceedings... We gave him one euro if he would find something... I was convinced that they wouldnt sell to kids...
Well, look on the pic below to see what he bought with one euro...
In the bag were two pairs of rollerskates, and he is sitting on a small side table... OK, he had fun, we had a laugh, and all of that for one euro.
In the afternoon we went to see the new Lego movie and we finished the day with MacD... So the kids had a great start of their holiday.
Today is my birthday and I was pleasently surpised when I received breakfast in bed from the boys. We were still sleeping when the two youngest shoved a drawing in my still sleeping face and the eldest brought me breakfast: a glass of water and yoghurt with muesli.
So I learned a wise lesson, learn the boys how to make coffee and place the coffee in a place where they can reach it :-)
But as Always, it is the thought that counts and this was a very big surprise. Thanks you boys.
Today Joop (son #2 hamster) passed away. Our au pair called me and showed me that she passed away, but she didn t dare telling the kids, so I piched her up and showed the kids.
We put her in a nice box on a soft little bed, with some food, so tomorrow DH will bury her with the boys.
