For our half-term break, we went to a Center Parcs in the Netherlands with my parents. It wasn’t the same park I wrote about in this post. That was De Eeemhof. This time, we went to De Kempervennen.
We did a lot in just a few days, but I was awful at remembering to take my camera out with us!!! In some cases (like our visit to the pool), this was probably a good thing! So, I’ll show you what I can of our fun little trip.....
It was the JUBILEE while we were away. Good old Mom had scoured the shelves of Asda and Wilko’s to source us plenty of flags and bunting and other Union Jack bits and bobs. In fact, one of the two suitcases they brought over with them was half-full of all her patriotic purchases!!! We decorated our chalet with it – inside and out. We even decorated our bikes!
It was nice to see that lots of other Brits staying there had done the same! Maybe it was because they knew that Her Majesty and Prince Philip were ACTUALLY going to BE there!!!
My two favourite bits of the holiday were hiring out a pedalo.....
..... and visiting the little farm. There was a cute little Bambi there:
Here’s Simon getting bored of waiting for me to have enough of the cute little Bambi and his friends:
But, I was glad I stuck around, because the Bambi let me stroke him:
Although these photos make it look like the weather was okay, it rained cats and dogs for most of the time. So, we spent a fair few hours in the jungley ‘dome’, drinking the most delicious hot chocolate EVER.....
..... and watching Prince Philip on the 50 cent merry-go-round:
The weather was so awful one night that we lit a fire in the chalet:
Despite all the rain, we had a super time and lots of laughs. Mom and Dad, thank you for a brilliant week!!! And, Dad, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY for tomorrow!!! XXX
I’ll be back soon, to tell you about my holiday crafting.....
