The Saturday that the Budde's were here we decided to venture to northern Holland to see the tulips and flower fields.  Brent and I had gotten the recommendation that the Keukenhoff was one of the best places to go.  It is a very large garden/ park with both indoor and outdoor flower gardens.  So we rented a car and headed north.  We took the scenic route and we were able to see fields and fields of tulips along the way.   After me being a back seat driver the entire way (because you know I really know the roads in Europe ha) we made it.  The place was insane- insane with flowers and people.  Again, we dealt with on and off rain, but we made the best of it and saw a lot of flowers. WARNING - there are a lot of pictures of flowers, if you don't like flowers, well skip this post :)

 After we left the Keukenhoff we stopped at some near by fields and literally ran around in the tulips.  By this time the rain had cleared up and the sun was shining. I did some jumping in the flowers, Brent did some leaping and Brad did some prancing.  Who knew you could have so much fun in a tulip field.  After the all the jumping and prancing we made our way to Noorwijk and walked along the beach. It was a nice way to end our visit with the Buddes.

Missy and Brad we loved having you guys here and we know we will all be talking about the great memories from this trip for years to come!


  1. Mindy - why didn't your post include a story about nut schmutz?! Or Missy being disgusted by "dirty" rain?! Or the Halloween costumes we saw?! - Brad

    1. Some stories are best for just the four of us! Maybe i'll do a future post on all of Missy's comments while she visited :)
