Water, Wind and Waves

We went to Water, Wind and Waves, an exhibition about Dutch maritime art in the 17th century.

We were a little early and the boys had a lot of energy so I parked at the Federal Reserve and we went for a long walk along Constitution. It's 1.5 miles from there to the museum so they had a change to release their energy.


To the County Fair

This morning we went to the Arlington County Fair, the kermis. Jaap and Mieke walked, I took the kids with the bakfiets. That was a lot of fun, the boys in particular liked crossing the highway on a bike bridge.

We spent most of our time at the playground, and the boys did two rides. Adrian didn't like the first ride ("ik wil dat jij bij mij was") but they both enjoyed the train ride with Opa. We brought sandwiches and water, which was smart since they 'were getting hungry' at 10.30 am, they said. We also met Ginny, who was working for the Arlington Library.


A boy and his Opa

The boys love the attention they are getting.

Here are Jaap and Adrian reading a book.


Jaap's birthday

We celebrated Jaap's birthday together, a nice milestone. In the morning there were gifts -- mostly of the literary persuasion. Later in the day Judy and Ginny joined us for coffee and home-made apple pie.

We went for dinner at the Silver Diner, much to everyone's delight -- it was a fun day.


Protected bikelane on Quincy

This week Quincy a part of is being repaved and it's getting a real protected bikelane, very cool.

I took this route to and from the office, just to try it out. It's probably a little longer than my normal route but it's just so cool to take a real bikelane.


First week with Opa and Oma

Opa and Oma left for New York City yesterday. They took the train. They're planning to visit the Metropolitan, the 9/11 Memorial, Central Park and a few other things.

We've had a great first week together. The boys were a little bit shy, but quickly got used to my parents again, especially when Oma started reading a book.
