Exciting News Just In Time For Summer...

Fact: We spent all of for all of our three-day weekend out in the fresh air
with the sun blazing bright. 
Fact: My Dutchman has been wanting a boat of his own for a loooong time.

Yesterday afternoon, I was reading in the park, waiting for friends 
and apparently, my Dutchman perused a boat on his way to join me... 
then made up his mind to buy it, right then and here! 
Surprise! We have a boat! 
 An hour later, friends and drinks were rounded up and we set off for an afternoon ride...

Needless to say, I think he was especially inspired after spending the last two days enjoying our swimsuits and sunshine while borrowing a friend's boat.
We kept passing boats for sale, which was really just a big tease.
All together, we spent three afternoons floating in the sunshine,
wandering through Amsterdam's canals, bobbing along the Amstel River
and soaking up every drop of sun with family and friends.
Good thing we did, since this morning looks overcast with rain on the horizon, bummer.

Here are a few photos I snapped from our weekend of boating, enjoy!

Isn't it funny how sitting on a boat- in the sun- for three days feels exhausting once it's over?
I wanted this long weekend to last forever!


 Although there's some some fixing up to do, this purchase comes just in time for summer!
(which pass by too quickly here in Holland)
I can't wait for all the floaty-boaty parties we can enjoy with friends this season, hoera!
What are you looking forward to this summer?
