WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of April 7, 2012.
On Saturday I had finally finished the Easter decoration to take with us to our son in Amsterdam to celebrate Easter with little grandson Toby.
With his 15 months he is a little to young to understand but he loved the colorful basket and the Easter bunny.
We had a nice trip to Amsterdam without any traffic.
We spent the afternoon playing with him and in the evening we went to a nice restaurant. Toby behaved very well, as you can see he even studied the menu card.
On Easter Sunday, we hid some plastic and fabric eggs and bunnies and he went around with a little basket and was happy when he found something.
Very proud with Nonno and Nonna and yellow Easter eggs.
Then we had a brunch sitting at a nicely decorated Easter table.
Toby tried to break the plastic eggs with a felt hammer and found it very funny when they jumped away.
In the afternoon we made a nice excursion to a small but beautiful and very touristic village Vollendam, which was packed with people from Germany, UK, Italy etc. Despite the quiet cool weather people were even sitting on the terrace.
A shop made photos with people dressing them in typical Dutch costumes, I took a picture of them as a paparazzi (as usual when it is not allowed) and fortunately I did because when we came back they couldn't find the picture ! So we got the money back and returned home.
In the evening we had a nice Easter meal with special Italian tortellinis filled with cheese and nuts, eggplants and tomato sauce and as dessert a typical Italian Easter cake, called "Colomba di Pasqua" which means Easter dove, tomorrow we will return home.
