23 April 2014 in Holland

We spent some time in the nearby market town of Weert today. I have been here so many times looking around the somewhat lackluster shops but have never paid much attention to the buildings. They are actually rather beautiful.

The church clock tower

We bought the children some presents and subsequently spent the whole afternoon obsessively making Rainbow Loom bracelets. How amazing is the iphone 5S camera by the way? I miss my Blackberry for everything else, but the camera is fab.

Holland is getting ready for Koningsdag on April 26, a national celebration on the birthday of the King. Holland's cheap and cheerful home store HEMA has boas in national colors to show our support for the King (or more likely for his popular Argentinian wife Queen Maxima).

After dinner we paid a visit to the award winning ice cream shop in the town next door. 

This is what the best banana and melon ice cream in Holland looks like.
