Kijkdagen, Gietenboerke: Oerle

Every spring a goat farm in Veldhoven opens it’s doors for a few Sundays of ¬†goat feeding fun. The new little babies have been born and this is your opportunity to cuddle up with a baby goat and feed it from a bottle, and… Continue Reading “Kijkdagen, Gietenboerke: Oerle”

Aardbeienhof: Gemert

My family calls Aardbeienhof: Gemert ¬†“Strawberry Land” because it is a celebration of all things strawberry. Aarbeienhoff is a really unique play place with lots of things to do. There is an indoor and outdoor play area and strawberry picking. In the summer there… Continue Reading “Aardbeienhof: Gemert”

Maritime Museum: Rotterdam

I really enjoy to the Maritime Museum: Rotterdam. If it were closer I could see taking the kids there on a regular basis. Unfortunately it is about 1 1/2 hours to get there from Eindhoven and that’s just at the top of what I’m… Continue Reading “Maritime Museum: Rotterdam”

Dippie Doe: Best

I have always had a bit of a love hate relationship with Dippie Doe: Best. It’s a fun place and my kids both love going there. In fact, if I ask my son where he wants to go on a particular day he will… Continue Reading “Dippie Doe: Best”

Ballorig: Veldhoven

This is my favorite indoor place to take the kids. We live there (I’m only exaggerating slightly). We are there every week at least once but sometimes as many as three times. There are a number of reasons for this. I live in Veldhoven… Continue Reading “Ballorig: Veldhoven”

Monkey Town: Valkenswaard

I am on a constant hunt to find new indoor places to take the kids. I love living in The Netherlands but I find the winters very difficult to handle, especially now that I have kids. It’s so difficult to keep my two very… Continue Reading “Monkey Town: Valkenswaard”

Kabouter Hunting: Bosschuur de Meren

Every fall, my families favorite place to play outside puts on a kabouter hunt! Kabouter Hunting: Bosschuur de Meren is a really great way to spend a fall day. So what is a kabouter? Cute, aren’t they? Basically they are what we English speakers… Continue Reading “Kabouter Hunting: Bosschuur de Meren”

Hullie Speelboerderij: Uden

A “speelboerderij” is roughly translated to “play farm”. I am always slightly confused about why this is in the name. It isn’t a farm and although there are chickens in a koop at one corner of the property there are no animals on the… Continue Reading “Hullie Speelboerderij: Uden”

Toverland Amusement Park

I love amusement parks. Growing up my family had season passes to a really big one called Six Flags Over Texas. I could never sleep the night before we went because I was always so excited. I get the same feeling when I am… Continue Reading “Toverland Amusement Park”
