Saturday Sept 17th –
To the beach! But not before Mike found a cafe selling our favourite macaroons to stop at before hand 🙈
I must say, starting the day with a fresh, pistachio macaroon could get super addicting😏
We made it to the beach and loaded up before trekking through the sand to where the rest of the family was situated.
Not a trek you’d want to take more than you have to so good thing we fit everything in one trip.
Or not 😜
Our beach mat and small Italian soccer ball had been forgotten in the trunk 🙄
Luckily Jesse had another trip to make back to the cars and he retrieved them for us 👌🏻
The sun wasn’t shining but the wind wasn’t blowing either so it was actually nice weather considering the coast has been freezing cold every other time I’ve been there 😁
30 Hagenouw/De Jongs and their partners gathered together for the yearly beach trip to have family day/celebrate the grandparents anniversary.
Soccer, family photos, eating, visiting, drawing, exploring for beach treasures and napping…
Of course the only beach I get to be at for hours and hours, covered in shells… is one that has only about two kinds of shells 🙄 😏
They are pretty shells for sure but hundreds of them, aren’t something I need.
(Never thought that would be something I’d say about shells 😜)
I did find ONE unique one 🐚
Also, I finally got a chance to use the beach blanket Mike got me, on a beach and not as a light summer blanket in the car 😋👌🏻💙
Where I got to try my carmel coconut popcorn! Which was a bit of a disappointment and not very coconuty at all 😔
Sunday Sept 18th –
Up and at er early so we could drive to Germany and go to church there and then it turned into lunch as well, at a Greek place with some friends/cousins.
Hopefully we aren’t sick of Greek food BEFORE we actually get to Greece 🙈
It was an early morning to get there and the same drive back so once we were back it was prime time to lay in bed for a while 😁
Sarah was a darling and sent back my favourite poppy-seed bread from Germany, for the second time within a week.
I think she has an evil plan behind the nice giving… fattening perhaps ? 😏😜
