Girls with Rick! So cute.. our first church service..
Many things have happened but i will tell you the best as well as i can.
So after England we moved on to Brussells Beljum... We got there late at night and found a hotel.. it was good fun. We met someone and had some good conversation! Wow is it ever nice to talk to people when it is just the two of you. We love meeting new people traveling. Brussells was kind of dirty though.. men whistling.. yuck not what we like.. but great shopping! hehe.. Got some shoes. we missed a couple of trains to Amsterdam because we were shoppin so much. haha So we went to Amsterdam the next day! We got there around 7:30 and found ourselves a hotel.. once again no reservations just figure it out as you go.. it seems to be working very well! We love it. We came to the hotel which looked out over a beautiful canal beside brick roads! So beautiful i love Holland. Mom and I were on the 2nd floor and we were like ók'but low and behold the stairs were like straight up and down i was wearing high heels and our bags are small but have gotten
The women are so beautiful!! And the babies were so cute! ...
heavy.. We started laughing and laughing and couldn't stop! We had flights of stairs to walk up.. quite the time.. We took pictures the following day taking our luggage down!
So the next day we went on 'Mike's Bik's' TOUR! Oh my goodness! I loved it! Biking around while finding out history of Amsterdam and history you actually care about hearing.. Well spoken.. about 30 of us were biking around Amsterdam very large group! I think that is one of my favorite things so far! Biking in Holland! I love the feeling! After this we went to Amsfort Vanhorst. We are Visiting our cousins at the moment! We surprized Gretta. our cousin but more like and Oma (grandma).. it was her birthday yesterday! What a great surprize. We spent the night there and will tonight! A beautiful house! She had to move from her old Farm House which was to the T huge! And decorated so nicely! You would love her house now! She transplanted everything.. her house is filled with trinkets and all sorts of old farm house things! So cozy! We love it here... We are constantly playing scherades! (don't know how to spell that) Acting our words
The women are so beautiful once again! this is at the Nursing School! this is their praise and worship... they had to wear white @ Chapel
because Gretta speaks more dutch than anyting.. not much English. The rest though, Grettas daughters and everyone else speaks enough english to have great conversation. Today we went to the country side and stayed at one of her daughters houses.. she has a coffee shop on her land all farm style! Very nice! Beautiful land... all farm and bicycles everywhere! I love it here. .. Spent this day visiting with the children making neclaces (gettings in dutch) jewelry and all... We are lauhging and teaching each other our languages! It's great fun! We love you all and pray you are enjoying yourselves! Let us know how you are.. Send a message
