We finally made it to see the tulips in the Netherlands. It was a long drive, but the Keukenhof gardens are gorgeous and we had a nice afternoon there.

it's been a busy week

I have a car! After sharing Eric's car for the three years since we got married I finally have my own :) It's a 2009 Ford Escape with plenty of room for the kids and all sorts of buttons for me to figure out someday when I have time to read the manual.

We drove to the port to pick up the car so while we were so many hours from home we went ahead and made a long weekend out of it and visited my uncle near Hamburg, bought some pretty marzipan in Lubeck, and wandered Berlin and Potsdam. The weather was gorgeous and we all had a great time.
