Lentefeest son#3

Today son#3 had his birthday and was seriously spoiled. And he like it... :-)

Even with all the rain, the kids had a great time in the inflatable pirate cave.

He wanted an ice cream truck, so he had one stopping.
I scream,
You scream,
we all scream
for ice cream...

And of course the traditional picture with teh au pairs who were able to make it this time. So thank you everybody that was there. You made son #3´s day.

Real Mother's day.

Made some Beurre salé to go with the apple-nut cake I made for tomorrow. I had to ask a favor from co-workers, so they deserve a cake for their troubles.
For those who want to make it themselves:
- 60 g butter
- 110 g crystal Sugar
- 120 ml heavy creme
First melt the butter, then add the Sugar and let it melt, don't stir too much. When everything is dissolved and the colour turns brown, add the creme. Be careful, the mixture will rise suddenly.
Keep stirring et voila...
Son #1 gave me this cupcake for Mother's day. I was quiet impressed by the shape, they never turn out this way when I make them.
Turns out, their teacher bought them... :-)

Long weekend

We had a long weekend, some of us, already since Wednesday afternoon, someof us since Thursday, but we did a lot. We finished the new dressing. It looks great. Fridaymorning we went to buy the floor and hubbie and my dad placed it in the afternoon. Great work.
Yesterday the kids wanted to have breakfast at the market so we went there early, wonderful breakfast, we walked through the city before heading home when it started to get crowded.

And now we are enjoying some off time in the garden.
