High Tea

Emma went to her first High Tea with Grandma Peggy and Aunt Kit Kit. We all got dressed up and traveled in to central London. We went to a nice quaint hotel and were the only ones there. Emma was able to explore and try out all the sofas in the lounge. We enjoyed our tea and scones, while watching Emma licked off all the icing from the deserts and eat all the blackberries. She is not to go a sharing blackberries. It was a lovely girls day out, that ended with a little shopping at Harrods.

Amsterdam Trip

Emma and Mommy tagged along with Daddy on a business trip to Amsterdam. We bought tickets for the hop on hop off canal boat. Which is the only way any tourist should ever visit around Amsterdam. It was great, Emma and I toured around Amsterdam on all the Canals and hopped off when ever we wanted to. We went to the Van Gogh Museum together. She was excellent in the museum. We saw the NEMO science museum and the Ann Frank House. While on the canal we were able to see great house boats, the opera house and Amsterdam's oldest bridge. I am so glad we went by canal, because Amsterdam is filled with bicyclist and we would have most definitely gotten run over. On our second day Emma and I went to the Amsterdam Zoo and unfortunately got rained on. Before getting our train to Rotterdam to meet daddy we went to the flower market to make our final purchases. We got our-self's on a train to Rotterdam where we meet up with Daddy, however with only a few hours before our flight we found a great playground to spend the rest of the day at.

First Harvest

Well a couple weeks ago we pick our first veggies from the garden. And since then we have had non stop tomatoes. Let me just say we have found many new ways to use tomatoes in our meals.
