Spring at last!

Hi all,


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.



Lily showing off another of her birthday gifts: a fairy costume, complete with magic wand.



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.



Lily checking out the daffodils which are sprouting up everywhere in our back yard.



A couple of times this month, it has been warm enough for us to soak up some sun in the garden.





Action photo mid-corner, just before tipping over...



Faya prefers to have the pushbike all to herself.



The girls using their creativity to colour the pavement with chalk ('stoepkrijt').



That's all for now... Till next time, much love from
Sander, Myrthe, Lily & Faya.
