I’m aware I have already posted so many photos (and a video!) of our Amsterdam adventures, but I had so many lovely, colourful photos of this beautiful city that I took on my phone camera, that it just seemed a shame not to share them. Amsterdam is full of inspiration, colour, prettiness and exciting things around every corner, and I could have taken photos all day long.
Here is Amsterdam as through the eyes of my iPhone…
Our flight with KLM left at 6am meaning that we were in the air for the most beautiful sunrise.
Everywhere you looked there were beautiful crooked buildings and quaint little streets, we could have walked around for hours just looking in the shop windows and waving at the boats.
Love this photo of myself and LL- she was in her element exploring and running about.
We went to Pancakes! Amsterdam for some pancakes (obviously) and the waiter very kindly took a photo of us all.
As a family we all have a little bit of a thing for pancakes so queued for an hour to get in- they were definitely worth the wait.
My little lady checking out the tulips.
A cuddle with my big girl in Dam Square.
Waiting for the ferry on the second day of our adventures.
We went for lunch at Pllek, a cool bar/restaurant made out of old shipping containers. The girls loved the fact that we weren’t sat at a table, instead we snuggled up on cushions.
I had falafal, Mr E had a burger and Mads and LL had this weird sandwich which the waiter translated as ‘brown sugar.’ We still aren’t quite sure what they were eating but needless to say it went down well!
After lunch we checked out some of the colourful street art, the girls loved running about in the big open space.
Posing. We just loved the colours of all the graffitii and art.
We hired bikes and had fun exploring the city. I would love to say I had the bike with the girls in front, but in reality I did it for about two seconds before deciding it was far too scary, and letting Mr E take over.
Another colourful street, honestly it was just such a family friendly place and we could have walked around for days without getting bored.
We love you too Amsterdam. We are definitely planning on coming back very soon.
You can definitely tell they are not the milkman’s. How alike do they look? 😉
Another cute little street.
Is it acceptable to take your children down to breakfast in their pj’s? Probably not, but that’s what we did. It was delicious and Mads became obsessed with these weird chocolate sprinkle things that you put on bread and toast- nice and healthy. We *may* have smuggled a few home in my bag.
Taking a photo by the canals on our third day. Our girls certainly aren’t angels all the time, but they were so well behaved all weekend.
Eating a waffle in Dam Square and watching the world go by.
Bye Bye Amsterdam, thank you for all the adventures!
