Antwerp, Belgium: August Visit

Another non-blog post vs. a photo dump from Facebook album download.

We had a nice time visiting Soren’s Pake & Beppe in Antwerp, Belgium.  Soren was 19 months old – not walking on his own and I was just pregnant with Maebh.

 



Long story short is that I IVF and was not yet sure if I was pregnant and this time round, I couldn’t help but to take a home test – over the moon when it showed JA – two stripes!!

It was quite hot this trip so we bought a green pool and put it on the roof terrace.  You could see this pool on Google Earth years later!


 

 

 

 

We used to live in the top two floors of the apartment building on the left.

 

 

 

 

We traveled up to Amsterdam to visit Nils’ sister’s new baby girl, Vaughn, stopped in the Apenheul (zoo for only monkeys) and saw some friends and other family members.

 

 

 

 

 

And that is where I saw the tallest Dutch girl in my life – she was taller than Nils at 6’8″.  I had him walk by her for the photo.

 

Yes there was a man wearing WOODEN shoes at the Monkey Zoo!

And spotted a guy wearing REAL wooden shoes around the zoo – I thought I saw it all.

 

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
