Photo story: Celebrating Mother's Day

11 May 2015



Dear friend,

This week has been challenging. A messy house, pain and bored kids to entertain. My injured arm meant I had to have total rest and the kids were on holiday. I'd been dealing with a lot of mummy guilt! Mother's Day was the tonic I needed and when given the choice; it's your day we can do what you want! I was tempted to make a run for it. Perhaps a nice spa, secluded beach or wine bar, one can dream. But no, I chose a family day out...



The day began with English breakfast in bed. The perfect start.








The boys made me some beautiful presents at school.



We went to Groenendaal.


It was like walking into a fairy tale, the toadstool was so cute (it's actually a toilet).


It was a beautiful day for all the family to walk in the woods.





The boys loved the children's farm.  


The playground was great! Lots to do and the kids were fenced in so it was safe.


Boys will be boys. Sun and water, always a great combination. 


Feeling like a giant on papa's shoulders.

The day ended with dinner and drinks at Oma's house. 

A beautiful day and fun for all. Just what the Dr ordered.
