David is officially Dutch - in the last 48 hrs he has accomplished the following: riding his bike while carrying a suitcase...and riding said bike while carrying three bags of groceries! I think one of our favorite past-times here is to sit on our balcony and watch people: 1) riding bikes while carrying bags and children, holding an open umbrella, and talking on cellphones all at the same time 2) watching people in boats traveling down the canal right outside our place and ducking so they don't lose a head while crossing under a particularly low bridge.
Anyways...we managed to secure and cart home a freshly baked baguette, so eating cheese (and Queen Victoria plums/lingonberries) on the balcony catapulted to being our number one dinner option. Hoping for more sunny, beautiful days!!
