On Saturday we drove to the Netherlands! We went to Kinderdijk, a small town about one hour south of Amsterdam. At Kinderdijk (pronounced Kinder-dike), we walked along a small canal which had 12 windmills scattered about. Later in the day, we went to Madurodam. It is series of models of "Dutch towns on a 1:25 scale, composed of typical Dutch buildings and landmarks, as are found at various locations in the country." Enjoy!
It rained a bit but the kids did great.
Eventually it stopped raining...
...but Jane was already a 'bit' wet...
...ok, very wet...
But it didn't bother her a bit.
The sun came out.
...and I and Jane dried off.
...and Charlie caught some air.
Yay--a picture of all of us.
Charlie and Jane loved the trains that zipped all around at Madurodam.
This is my brother's band, John Brown's Body, rockin out at a festival.
