The Groningen Redemption

For those of you who have been reading my blog for the last few months you know that I have been spending a lot of time in Groningen lately and that, over all, I am not a huge fan. It’s a lovely city with… Continue Reading “The Groningen Redemption”

Hullie Speelboerderij: Uden (Updated)

Hullie was never my favorite place to take my kids. I know that everyone has different tastes and that just because I don’t like a place doesn’t mean that it isn’t someone else’s favorite. Not that I don’t like Hullie, but to be fair… Continue Reading “Hullie Speelboerderij: Uden (Updated)”

Keukenhof, The Netherlands

I was asked yesterday (I think though maybe it was two days ago) why I have never written a blog about The Keukenhof. I have to admit I didn’t have an answer. I have been many times while living in the Netherlands and generally… Continue Reading “Keukenhof, The Netherlands”

Pompoenerie Best

Yesterday my kids and I went to a pumpkin patch in Best. I didn’t know what to expect, honestly. I have never been to a pumpkin patch in the Netherlands. In the US, Texas at least, visiting a pumpkin patch is a must do… Continue Reading “Pompoenerie Best”

Herfstvakantie: 2018

The fall break starts in 2 days for most kids in North Brabant. That means a whole week entertaining the kids. Luckily there is no shortage of activities and places to let them run off their energy.   Within the center of Eindhoven the… Continue Reading “Herfstvakantie: 2018”

Hoeve de Nachtegaal: Wintelre

As anyone who follows me on FB or Instagram knows, we spend a ton of time at Bosschuur De Meren. It’s a great nature reserve in Wintelre with a water pump, sand pile and lots of nature. We love it there and go generally… Continue Reading “Hoeve de Nachtegaal: Wintelre”

Klimbim: Waalre

Klimbim: Waalre is a great little park. It feels very mishmashed but I think that’s why my kids love it so much. It’s like they started with any and all playground equipment they could find and went from there. The stuff ranges from vintage… Continue Reading “Klimbim: Waalre”

Gouden Woud: Liempde

Gouden Woud: Liempde is a cool place for indoor and outdoor fun. We spent a great afternoon there last week. At first glance it’s not all that exciting, honestly. There are bigger play places around. I knew my kids would have fun, but they… Continue Reading “Gouden Woud: Liempde”

Sterren Strand: Eersel

Sterren Strand: Eersel is a water park located on a camp ground. My kids call it the “indoor beach” because that’s how it feels. It is a shallow pool with sand and things to climb on. Although my kids have always focused almost completely… Continue Reading “Sterren Strand: Eersel”

Billy Bird: Hemelrijk

I rarely come across a place that I know we have to have year passes for but Billy Bird: Hemelrijk is one of them. We also have year passes for Dierenrijk: Nuenen, Toverland Amusement Park, and Ballorig: Veldhoven. Seems like a lot but they… Continue Reading “Billy Bird: Hemelrijk”
