OUR WORLD - La Hulpe park

For the first time this year we really had spring weather. My son and family had arrived from Amsterdam so we decided to make a nice walk through the park of the La Hulpe castle, near Waterloo.

We didn't go to the castle but rather behind where an old farm has been transformed into a restaurant.

First thing when grandson Toby saw this car selling icecream, he wanted one !

and leaked it off with gusto !

Little ducks were chasing each other

and still "armed" with his ice cream, he walked on mummy's hand towards the restaurant

The old farm house

A young couple had chosen this place for their wedding pictures

A view over the park

For the first time this year we could sit outside

watch Toby playing with other kids and a very friendly little dog

Hungry and thirsty he had a hot chocolate milk !

Then we slowly walked back to the car and returned home

Your son, daughter-in-law and Toby visiting must have energized you. That's a great family outing you have there. How long are they staying?

Your Toby has the blondest of blond hair. I don't suppose it will last.

The ducks are very pretty.

So glad you all could get outdoors. Looks like things are really greening up.
