Keukenhof (Post #2-Exhibitions) Lisse, The Netherlands

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).

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.
