Flower fields

Yesterday we drove up to Holland to visit our nephew that turned three and we drove past some flower fields that were already (or just...) in bloom. Normally it is sooner, but because of the cold and bad weather, these are the first we saw. Very nice.
In the meantime, I am crocheting on the happypotomus, alredy 10 hexagons done...

Bought this pattern from Heidi Bears on ravelry. I think it is just too cute. So I can´t wait to make this cutiepie. And I also know who I am making this for, but it is still a surprise...

Circus camp

 Son #1 went to Circus camp during the Easter holiday and he had a blast, he really likes it (it is the second time he joins the circus camp) and I am always impressed how quick these kids pick up al the tricks.
Ok , I must admit, son#3 isn´t really atletic, but he is only 4, but he was allowed a try on the trapeze as you can see, aided by my dad and his big brother.

Nic really likes the trapeze and he always amazes us with his strength on these contraption... I will not repeat these...

New York is a step closer

A couple of friends and I are planning a trip to the big apple. Last weekend, we had a ladies night, OK, except for my boys, but they were in bed by then, we had some champagne, watched Magic Mike and made plans for our trip to NYC.
So, who has some great ideas for NYC? Restaurants we must visit, some hidden musea, craft stores? Just some need to visit places. I can´t wait to get some great ideas from you guys.

Update on budo stage

The boys went to budo stage a couple of weeks ago and now I received pictures of this event. They were allowed to try different martial art forms, like pentac silat, tai chi, karate, etc. This events are always great fun for them, as they can taste what other martial arts there are.

Google has a Belgian logo today. 150 years ago Architect and painter Henry van de Velde was born in my hometown Antwerp.
The G stands for his Pictural period, the O for his graphic work, the second O for his furniture design, the second G for his conceptual work, the L for the Booktower in Gand and the E to a porthole to another world.

Last week DH had an exhibition in Nantes so I took the TGV to Nantes for the weekend. Bought some delicious macarons in Paris on the change from the Thamys to the TGV.
I arrived on Fridaynight and we had a lovely diner with oyster (as we were in Bretgagne, wyou should eat oysters offcourse). The next day we went into town and there was a big fair going so, so we had a lovely time.
I didnt know that Petit beurres are from Nantes...

And as you can see, the weather was fantastic... sun, warm, spring... unlike the weather in Belgium. When we drove back on sunday, there was snow...
