Five years ago, on March 4th 2006, we arrived back in Holland after having been away for three years. A lot has happened since then!
This is one of the last photos we took during our big trip from Down Under to Below Sea Level: Peter's beach bar, our favourite hangout in Goa.
Blue skies this month in Utrecht too, but slightly less tropical temperatures... After a long and gloomy winter, the trees and plants in our back yard are getting ready to bloom.
Especially the nights are still very chilly. This is a photo Sander took of the frozen windshield of our car, early one morning.

Naturally, Faya couldn't stay behind, and insisted on wearing her princess dress.
Luckily for Sander, the times our girls are 'pretty in pink' are few and far between. Usually, they're kitted out in sensible clothes, safe for use at the daycare centre or in the garden.
