Birthday Shopping

It had been a while since our last visit to the Efteling. So we thought taking Ivรกn there would be a nice present for his birthday. Something we all would enjoy. And we most certainly did! It was a calm day and the weather was really nice. Couldn’t have planned it any better. And as promised, he could choose a couple of more presents while we were there. ๐Ÿ™‚

Monkeys, Apes and Primates

Back on the road with the Canon for a change. Time to try out the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens some more. One of the reasons for buying this lens was to have a little more reach than what I was having. A Zoo is one of those places where those extra mm’s come in handy. A perfect place to see what this lens can do.

All Those Colors In Black And White

A funfair, right in the heart of the city. Last week we were in Breda to visit the carnival. I expected this post to be in color. After all there’s plenty of color to be seen at a funfair.

Either way, here are some photos of last weekend.

A JE TO!

I still enjoy watching Pat & Mat and seeing them solve their self-made problems. It’s hugely entertaining to me. We like them so much that we even went to the cinema and theater to see them. We are clearly in that phase now. ๐Ÿ™‚

A Sunny Day In The Efteling

Blue skies and sunny weather. Last Sunday was mother’s day in Hungary. We thought it would be nice to take my mother in law to the Efteling and show her this magical place we’re always talking about. Especially nice this time of year because of all the flowers that are blooming.

We were a little afraid it would be really busy due to the school holiday. But luckily it wasn’t that busy and we could even do all the rides we had planned. Happy mother’s day!
