When we were at Keukenhof they were celebrating Vincent Van Gogh, and had some cool installations. It was perfect timing because Quinnie had just been learning about him at school (she also got to see some of his actual paintings in person when we went here).
They took scenes from his paintings and turned them into real rooms that you could become a part of…
They were putting in a giant flower mosaic portrait of him…
At the Tulpomania installation learning all about tulips…
Aren’t these Delft tulip vases amazing?!
A poster showing that a handful of tulip bulbs were once more valuable than a house! / A tulip shaped chair.
how the bulbs of different flowers look
of course the girls were all over the computers..
Tulip shaped purse, anyone?
On the way back to our hotel we stopped in Noordwijk to hang at the beach. This is where Simon and I first talked about getting married (in 2000!), so it was especially cool to bring our girls there.
Their first time in the North Sea!
