2 Amazing Things

Today is a great day.  NOt only are birdie and bryguy here (woohoo!  photos to come), but 2 other things are going on..

1. Super Rory just won the UTMB.  This is major, like a really really big deal.  We wish we were in Chamonix right close yet so far.  Such an inspiration...ahhhhhh...too cool!  I heard her time was a record for females on this crazy course.  She crushed it.

2. Chicago outlawed butts.  You know that I wish it was PDX (and Amsterdam), but it is so cool to see any major city take this step.  There is hope in this world, hope that soon jackasses won't flick butts least not in chicago.

Funny Confession #230

I loved the colors so much I had to share. Sorry.

Vacation Tastes The Same Everywhere

Final Hollandays, Until The Next Hollandays Vacation

Beaching it all week was tempting, but we brushed off the sand and rounded out our trip with some culture and traditional Dutch stuff. We hit up the Alkmaar Cheese Market, Zaanse Schans (windmills, cheese and cocoa making, clogs), and the Fierljeppen National Championships.

We spent a week away without going more than a few hours from home.  This country is full of adventures to be had.  We will definitely plan a few more Hollandays trips.
