So did Mom!
Between the stresses and emotion of moving, and a little project I had started before our move to San Antonio, I have decided to start writing as a nod to both things. Here you will find updates on our family and what we're doing here, mixed with a journey I've been walking for a couple of years.
Meet Hans Peter van Aarkel. We bought him in the Target dollar alley before our trip. We figured we needed something little, fat, and cute to take pictures with on our trip, and since we don't have a baby......TADA.....enter HPVA. Granted, I wouldn't shove my baby in the bottom of a completely overloaded purse, like I did this little guy, but he was a good ice breaker none the less. This is him on our kitchen counter before departing for Europe
What's that you say HPVA? You're excited about the trip? Me too little buddy! (Why is everything in blue and underlined?? Oh the mysteries of blogger)
Hans Peter was very hungry when we got there and he really wanted to try something different....so we went to Burger King....and he stood on his burger
Here he is with some lovely Dutch "art"
It was quite a bit chillier in The Netherlands than it was in Dallas, so after a long while walking and seeing everything another country had to offer, HPVA decided he needed some warmth and a pick me up. So he ordered a very manly cappaccinoBoy did he get us some looks in Keukenhof! Here he is after escaping my purse and climbing a tree.
