Birthday Adventure

Hello lovely friends! I hope you all are doing well!!

If there is a terrible blogger award out there, I totally deserve it! Lately, it has been so hard for me to find time to sit down and read all of my favorite blogs, as well as write about our daily adventures! So this post is definitely overdue and REALLY LONG!

Last Friday we hopped on a red-eye at 1:15 a.m. and finally left the middle east to return to our lovely home in Germany! We arrived at 6:30 a.m. back in Frankfurt, grabbed a cab, and made it home in not so record timing because we managed to grab the slowest cab in world history... but we made it home safely nonetheless.

We showered, did a load of laundry, ate breakfast, and were back on the road by 10:30 a.m. YES WE'RE CRAZY! We set out for HOLLAND! I had been wanting to see the Keukenhof Festival in Holland since we moved to Germany, and since it was my birthday weekend, that's exactly what we did. My awesome husband found us a lovely hotel on the beach and made my birthday weekend so special!

Here are LOTS of pictures from our trip. I took over 400, but I'll spare you and will only post 100... just kidding. But if you don't like photographs, you might want to skip this post.

Our hotel

Since it was the tulip festival, they had a tulip parade and it passed right by our hotel. Here are a couple of the tulip floats.

After the parade we headed for the Keukenhof Gardens.

It was an incredibly beautiful day at Keukenhof, we couldn't have asked for better weather. The flowers were amazing! I've never seen so many flowers or people for that matter, in one place. Jon said it reminded him of the crowds at Disneyland. We had such a wonderful time! But that's not it... I'll be back soon with more pictures of the rest of our adventure to Holland. Stop back by on Monday for photographs of the tulip and hyacinth fields. Here's a little sneak peak.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully there is lovely weather where you are and you can spend the weekend outdoors!

I love the pictures! I have yet to make it to Holland, but would love to go and see all the tulips. Can I just say how tan you look? So jealous! Your hair has gotten long too! I love it!

Great pictures!!! I wanted to go to Holland for my birthday (in a couple of weeks), but the husband will be gone. Boo! I'm so jealous! Can't wait for the rest of the pictures!

The hotel looks so nice!

How fun! When we went to Amsterdam, it was in the spring, too. Loved it! Beautiful pictures, as always :)
