3. Sunday, we went to a village call Tuindorp that celebrated their 100th years. We bought this food because it looks strange and we never eat that before. So... we would like to try it. I forgot the name and it was SO delicious. Too bad, we bought in small bag but next time we see it again, we definitely wants a big one.

Jason's first holy communion

Sunday, 17 May 2015

Jason's first holy communion. We arrived at the church around 9.15 am, the ceremony started at 10 am. We had to be there more early because the photographer was going to take a photo group. I was exploring the church and took few photos.

Around 9.35 am, all the parents had to go the seats. Just quick photo before we were heading to our seats. They supposed to be eight children.  Too bad, one girl was little bit late.

The parents were not allowed to make any photos during the ceremony, because there was a special photographer who made all photos during the ceremony. So, few weeks after now, we will all get a CD with all the photos. We didn't have to pay anything extra cost for that.

After the ceremony, we had a quick photo with a priest before we went home.

At home, we had lunch with few of family members and closed friend. These are some of food that we made that day. The rest, I forgot to make a photo. Too busy with preparing everything.

Around 2 hours after lunch, we ate this delicious cake that we ordered to complete this special day.

We were thankful for everything that made that day was SO special for Jason.

Blessed during our trip to Legoland, Germany

1. The boys had a good attitude during our long 8 hours trip with the trains, especially Matthew. We knew he had tired but he keeps smiling. These photos were taken from our 1st train, I hold a camera and he asked me to make his photos ^_^.
2. We bought our train tickets online, it said if we traveled with 1st class we didn't have to reservation our seats. But in real life, you could not get a seat without reservation. It was not easy for all of us during our trips from the Netherlands to Germany. But thanks God, there was a woman helped us gave seats to the boys. 

When we arrived in Germany, hubby direct book reservation seats for all of us back to the Netherlands. We had to pay extra cash for these reservation. 

I will tell more detail about how the reservation seats work on other post. 

3. We got on time for our last bus to the cottage. 

4. First day at the Legoland park, hubby almost lost his backpack. Thanks God, someone called me to remind about his backpack.

5. Train's personnel (Deutsche Bahn or DB) were having a strike. We knew that when we did arrive in Germany. The hotel's personnel said the  strike will take 5 more days. I was stress when we knew that, I pray lots those days and it was work.

6. We wanted to buy something for the boys while we were there. They might to choose one Lego with certain of price. Only Matthew didn't want anything. He said, "I do have lots of Lego at home. You don't have to buy me any Lego." In the end, he choose this lunch box. It was really cheaper than Lego toy ^_^.

6. On the day we were back to the Netherlands, from the cottage we took a taxi to the station. We went early, because we didn't want to miss our ICE train. They were in the middle of strike, remember. A day before, we asked the hotel's personnel to call a taxi and we asked the price. It said around 45 euro. In reality, we were really lucky because we paid only 50 euro instead of 90 - 100 euro. 

7. We arrived at home safely, faster and easily. Thanks God.
