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.

We are back from our summer holiday in Greece, we went sailing with DHs parents, whom have a sailboat. As you can see, the weather was great.

Last year we saw Dolphins, but this year thay really came close to the boat, and they were big... Much bigger than I ever thought .

We rented a car and discovered Corfu and found some really nice places, beaches.

And offcourse son #3 turned six during the holiday. He wanted a cake, so we went to local bakery, but they didnt have any, so we went to search for a plain cake... And we found some. So he had a great birthday on the boat.

In one of the harbors, there was a cat family, mum with three kittens. They were really hungry, so after feeding the table scraps, son # 1 went fishing for the kittens and he caught 23 fishes... Those by the time we left the next morning, the kittens and mum were well fed.

We had great weather, but on our way back from the Mainland to Corfu, we encountered a storm, so it was quite the trip back.

But all well, that ends well, so we had a great day at the swimming pool on our last day in Greece. Great holiday, sun, sea, great food, we had a wonderful time.

Last day of school

Last day of school: as you can see, they were happy and she should. Their report cards were very good, so they had every reason to be proud of their achievement and they have earned a nice holiday.
I heard that the school gave them all an ice cream so they really celebrated the last day of school. It was Rubens last day in kindergarden... Another milestone achieved!
Tonight, I also got my diploma for my evening course French.
 We all can be proud of ourselves.

Cake cones

Yesterday, son #2 was taken to the bike shop by his godmother. She and his godfather were bying him a bicycle for his Lentefeest (communion for lapsed Catholics) :-)
He chose a white mountain bike typed bike, really nice and he was soooo happy. When we arrived home, he jumped on it to have a go with is brothers, only to return crying :-), he apparently fell off the bike... But he went back on it and biked until it was 9.30 pm and he had to go to bed. great success, thank you very much.

Tomorrow, son # 3 will celebrate his birthday in his class, because he has his birthday in July and school is already out, so tomorrow is his day at school.
He wanted cake cones, so I did my best, I guess they turned out alright...

Yesterday we spent the day at the beach. The weather was not great, but OK, it was warm, but not very... But we stayed at the beach, even if it was cloudy.

When we decided it was enough, we left the beach, and he moment we arrived at the car, it started raining.
The boys were done for:
