Happy Mothers day

For all you girls who are mums: Happy Mother s day! Let the kids take care of things. Hubbie got fresh buns and croissants and some nice coffee and the boys gave me these nice artsy things.

The best part was, that when I opened the present of son #2, it turned out to be someone elses painting.... So he will change it tomorrow...You should have seen his face. Precious.

So last week, we left for the wedding of our au pair Marie.

In Berlin was a temporary exhibition of Amplemännchen, so the kids liked it.
While walking to The Branderburger Toren, we met our au pair s future husband, who came out for lunch with us, while his bride had to work.

In the afternoon, we visited Lego Discovery Center in the Sony building.

Even I was impressed about the built lego statues inside. Great place to visit, but you can only visit the center with kids.

DH had to have his picture taken with Star Wars lego, of course...

Unter den Linden... really under... eating an ice cream as it was very hot during the weekend.

And then the big day... The wedding:


The bride and groom were gorgeous, and we had a fantastic day. The location was great, the food was great, everything was perfect.
Last day in Berlin, we took the bike taxi from Unter den Lidnen to Check Point Charlie with a stop at the piece of wall were there are chewing gums stuck. The boys wanted to stick one of them themselves.

We went to the panorama deck at the Raddisson Hotel, great view, fastest elevator in Europe, the boys were inpressed.

 We then took the double decker bus back to the underground, to go back to the car and leave back for home.

but not before I bought myself some donuts. As we cant buy them here in Belgium.

And was this a sign about the weekend, when we drove back home, we saw two rainbows over eachother.

Easter weekend

Easter weekend and start of the Easter holiday here in Belgium. The boys did very well at school, so now they have a deserved holiday.
This morning we invited my parents over for Easter lunch and DH hid some eggs in the garden.
The hunt was on, and in no time all the eggs were found. Son #1 thought the hunt was rigged and that his younger brothers knew where they were hid...

Bobbie hunted... not for Easter eggs, but for our goldfish...poor fish.

Happy Birthday son #2

Happy Birthday! Wishing you a wonderful, happy day.

He didnt know what surprise he would get, so I put ribbons all across his bedroom. The pic doesnt do it justice, but the whole room was filled, and he loved it when he woke up.

Turns out this is a water balloon filler...

Weekend - Boys will be boys

Son #1 got a rugby ball for his birthday and it had to be tested...

Dont know if this is the meaning of the game and of course did it result in tears...

Even Bobbie thought it was strange and kept her distance from all that boy force...
