At Easter, Flora and I had a girls weekend trip to Haarlem. It was so beautiful and so much fun to spend quality time with this girl. She is the easiest, happy traveler. I really love her so much, it’s hard to put into words.
We finally visited the Corrie ten Boom huis. I think this was more fun for myself, but weeks later when we were reading about her with Thibault in the Rebel Girls’ Book, I could see that she was really proud that she had been there and knew who this person was.
Haarlem was beautiful. Tulips blooming, sun was shining, and lunch outdoors. We had dinner one night at a sushi restaurant. Flora was so cute and happy. She thought the place was so modern. These are little things that make kids excited about life and me too. But, the highlight was the kermis. Flora loves a kermis! She’s a kid who cannot get enough of this stuff. She was so happy that we could go on the rides and see Haarlem from high up.
It was a beautiful weekend. I love that this tradition is returning. It really was a spectacular weekend together.
