Open Campus Day

On May 19th there was an Open Campus Day at PVH. PVH owns brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. It’s also the place where Adri works. So it was a nice opportunity to see a little bit more of the company itself and the things they do. Truly a well organised day for young and old. With a Ferris wheel, face paint and lots of food and drinks. A live band playing and a visit to the top with a view over Amsterdam. I can see why Adri loves working there. ­čÖé

Received a lot of presents during the week. And got pizza and cake as a birthday dinner. Here’s to our 5 year old!

Sinterklaas

This is blog post number hundred! One hundred blog posts! ONE HUNDRED! 100! Can you believe it? I certainly can’t! It’s quite a milestone. And what a better way to celebrate it with the arrival of Sinterklaas and his Pieten. Last Saturday Sint-Nicolaas arrived from Spain. And that’s always a big festivity here in The Netherlands. Children (and parents) are excited about the toys and candies he brings. Iv├ín and Simon dressed up as Piet for this special occasion.
