TGIF, I think not

Well, no TGIF for son #2. He broke his wrist earlier this afternoon. I was called at work to please and come pick him up as he had a nasty fall and they thought he needed to go to hospital, so I left work immediately and drove up to the Speelpleinen and found him sleeping and really looking pale. As he is not a complainer, I took him to the ER, where the nurse said that it was probably nothing, so I asked if the doctor could have a look at it and he send us for x-rays. And yep, he broke his wrist, so 6 weeks in a cast... great way to start the new schoolyear...

Bean stalk

Because it is hot with a lot of rain, our beans grow and grow. My dad blanted some plants a couple of weeks ago and as DH and I are not really green people, I thought this would never work, but look, the plants give a lot of beans. We already ate twice from them.

Family weekend

On Friday we gathered for our annual family weekend, as we were only allowed on the premises after 15.00, DH took the boys to Snowworld for some summer skiing. I had to wrok, so they went with the four guys only, it looks like they had a great time to me and the kids loved it.

I had some difficulty getting there as the traffic was terrible, even though it is summer holiday, but I managed to get there after dinner...

The next day started with rain, but luckily it stooped soon enough and we had a very nice day, it was even warm in the afternoon.

My parents had their 46th wedding anniversary while we were there, so there was cake...

After dinner, the kids were allowed to make smores and they loved it. In the morning they had been making flares.

So son #1 couldnt wait to light one... He couldnt even wait until it was dark...

We had great fun around the campfire with what apping to family that wasnt present, yes, I know, modern day youth... But we spent some family time together.

And this morning we had to clean up before we left, so we also had to get the frisbee that was on the roof, as it was not ours. So DH suggested to just lift one of the boys on the roof. And they did it safe, as he was wearing a helmet...

Farmers market

This morning we visited a local farmers market and one farmer sold differnt sorts of cauliflowers, the white ones we normally eat, the green ones but today he had purple ones, and they made me think of the purple minions.
I know, sometimes, my brain is taking me on weird thinking paths, so we bought one, the kids looked horrified that I mentioned we would eat it... but we already had great fun with it, taking pictures.

Birthday son #3

We already celebrated son #3 birthday on board during our holiday, but today we had a small party for family and friends. His godmother and godfather came ove for lunch, we had some BBQ as the weather was great. As dessert we had plane vanilla cake (his choice), chololat mousse cake, raspberry bavarois and a pear tart. They were all yummy, so I guess everyone had a cake to his liking.
At th emoment we have a thunder storm, so it is raining, hard... luckily, all the guests are on their way home.
