Mom in Holland

Once again, too much time has past since the last blog. But we have been on lots of adventures in the interim and have hundreds of photos to choose from! My mom came to visit last week, Sunday through Friday, and we did so much traveling and sight-seeing!! These next few posts will be a bit disjointed, as I have so many pictures and not enough time, but here are some initial highlights:

We went to Delft, home of famous, and slightly-too-common china, here is a nice old building in the main square:

We also went to Den Haag and saw the Peace Palace. This beautiful building is home to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and, had they not been in session we could have toured the interior: (I will go back in a few weeks)
We went to the Keukenhof, one of the most famous gardens in the world. Luckily, they opened on March 22nd for the season, the day before Mom was to leave. Beware, I have about a million pictures of tulips and may inundate the blog with these!! I will dedicate more to the Keukenhof later:

We also just hung out and had our pictures taken: Me and Joe letting our tongues hang out!
At the forest. Here in Holland, country-side is country-side, very little sprawl:
There was an old woman...!
Nap time
