Cousins, Camp and Castles!!!!

This past week was a week of hanging out with cousins, visiting castles, going to camp and having fun.  The "big kids" got to go to camp this past week and during camp they played games, did crafts, went on a field trip to an amusement park and very nicely told us moms to NOT pick them up early because they didn't want to leave.  Meredith and the "little ones" did a few day trips and we signed them up for 2 days of hourly care - aka camp.  We have eaten  Belgium waffles, tons of chocolate and even be able to see a few historical sites.  Today's adventure was Eftling - the Netherlands version of a fairy tales amusement park.  It was AWESOME!!!!!  The lines were not to long, the fairy tales were not just the few we are used to and they did not have many restrictions on the rides so we all got to ride them together.   One tale we got to see a "show" of was The Emperors New Clothes were they had a very large unsightly mannequin parade in front of you in nothing but his birthday suit - yep no clothes (that was fun to explain). 
Please note the pictures did not upload in any order and I am to tired to go through and fight to rearrange them.

Watch out crazy drivers.
They might have stopped the ride after I encourage my nephew to drive like a maniac - whoops.
