I hope everyone had a brilliant Easter! We had a lovely brunch and talked about some of our favourite Easter memories during our meal. I’d like to share a couple with you:
– At our church in Houston, the sermon was centered around ‘He is Risen… He is Risen, indeed!’ Such wonderful words filled with promise!
– Bailey was baptised 2 years ago on Easter Sunday!
The food was absolutely incredible at our brunch and it was set up so beautifully – of course, I ate too much! Here are some of the pictures… Yes, I went back many times. Had to get my money worth, but a free glass of Moët Chandon never hurts for that value! 🙂
I absolutely loved these Madeleines! They had them all over the hotel (it was the Sofitel, after all) and at brunch they gave me Nutella to put on them… So yummy!! For my birthday, I’d like the aluminium pan from Williams-Sonoma to make them on my own! Oh yes, I’d also like some yogurt bowls like what they had. Yes, everything I think and talk about does revolve around food! 🙂
Afterwards, we took a much needed walk and then toured the Heineken Brewery. It was really interesting. However, I think we were the only two that had Diet Pepsi and Pepsi instead of our two free beers each!
This was the view on our walk back to the next adventure!
We saw the seven bridges in a row… Unfortunately, I couldn’t take a picture on the boat tour as I was on the opposite side.
Then, we found an underground park called Tun Fun. It was a ‘ton of fun’… €8, but I know one little girl that would have asked us to pay 10x that for the fun! She was incredibly brave and loved the tall slide that went in to the ball pit.
There is lots more to tell! The next post might be all about food and the scenery of Amsterdam.
The weather was incredible and it didn’t rain until today when we were leaving for the airport… So thankful as that is NOT what the weather forecast said the weather would be in Amsterdam this weekend!
