Holland: Day 5 (December 21)

Daniel loved his sled ride yesterday. It took about 15 minutes to walk through the snow to Oma's house. We decided to just drop off her dinner and return since it was getting close to Daniel's naptime and there were a lot of layers to contend with if we went inside! On the walk home, we passed a petting zoo with deer, sheep, and even kangaroos!

When we got back home, I finally figured out how to post pictures to Facebook, so that kept me busy for awhile. Since we don't have our computer here, it was a little time consuming. I'll try to add more as I can.

Daniel was pretty tuckered out after his ride (and looked SO cute!) so he went down for his nap without much complaint. Opa quickly followed, as he seems to have caught a bit of a cold. He feels so bad because he wants to spend time with Daniel. (Fortunately, he seems to be feeling better today)

While the oldest and youngest boys were sleeping, the rest of us watched the movie, Oorlogwinter (War in Winter), a Dutch movie about a 13-year-old boy who joins the Resistance during WW2. It was very well done, and in fact, won several Golden Calf awards, which is the Dutch film award...and funny to me, if you know about the Old Testament story about the Golden Calf.

to be continued...
