The day after he turned one, Lake truly matured in the area of sleeping. Deciding it was time to grow up, go to bed nicely, and stay that way until 9:30 for the sake of his under-rested parents 🤪👍🏻
There were no more coffee beans in the house, so that of course had to be taken care of asap! So, Daddy and Lake hopped on the bike and went to the store to purchase some 😅
Lake is loving his bike rides… or at least, that’s what I hear 😜👍🏻
We had a lazy morning and then went into Doesburg to do a little bit of exploration.
Walking through the streets, popping in and out of shops.
Lake did his best to hold onto mommy’s first purchase 😂👌🏻💗
Struggling with his chunky little hands, to maintain his grasp.
Hans is a little specialty sweet shop we went into, and though the chocolates didn’t grab my attention, something in the front display case did.
A lemon meringue tart. I couldn’t believe my luck at finding one so quickly during the trip, as usually it takes stopping at multiple shops to find one 😉
Mike also purchased a coffee/hazelnut dessert to try.
The style here is really beyond what I can attain, so clothes shopping in the ladies boutiques has never yielded too much 🙈
Ferry Snacks, a snack bar in town, was our ending note. The owner/sever paused in his helping Mike, looking at him before asking if he lived around here because He recognized him, but felt like it had been a long time since he’d seen him. So ensued the conversation of how yes, he was from there, and yes, it had been awhile 😜 We left with a promise to be back again before out trip was over 😉
The main course was nasi ballen, a frikandel and fries, then followed by ice cream with sprinkles 😉👌🏻
Lake was introduced to the sprinkle addition and it seemed as though he enjoyed it, though it’s rare that he seems NOT to enjoy something so ya
Mike ordered and picked up ‘Kapsalon’ for supper, as his mom had worked the whole day and our plan of purchasing kibbeling (fried fish) for supper hadn’t been possible since the fish shop was closed 🙄
Not that we didn’t want to eat kapsalon while here as well 🤓
As I’ve explained all of these dishes before, I’ll refrain from doing so again. So if you really have a question about a dish, feel free to ask in the comments 😉
* I ask that you do your best to ignore any spelling mistakes, as on my iPad the set up is different, and I can’t find an easy way to do a spelling / grammar check. Thank you for your understanding
