Today it's the birthday of our King, and we celebrate that with Kingsday
Here you see him with his family.
With the complete Royal family they visit every year a city, where all activities are organized.
We can watch it on tv, it's really awesome.
In most towns and city's also all activities are organized.
As the weather men said we would get very bad weather
( last time it was that bad today it was 1985, I was just a baby.........)
So all the programs where adapted, many activities where deleted.
BUT.... we still had a awesome (but cold) day
This morning we had the bicycle parade, normally you decorate your bike and who has the most prettiest bike gets a prize.
The decoration I always use when it gets wet the bike will color to, so I decided with the rain they where telling about not to do that this year.. but decorate our faces
My beautifull children ♥
And also the clothimg is in style.. Red-White-Blue and Orange
In the Parade
For those who don't know my kids are riding one, they are called Space-Scooter.
Bought them this weekend from different people for some very little money, and my kids are very happy!!!
For years I'm telling that they are to expensive... but know found 2 good deals....
Then after lunch we got back and it was time for the jumble sale.
Normally it's very big, but for now, it was small in our townhouse.
Kids every year get a little bit of money, and can buy what they want :O
Kira bought 2 horses and a bracelet.,
Noah a race course and a binocular
Both got 2 euro......
I found a horse puzzle and a reading book, both for 20 cent..
So we had a great time.
There also where games
Collect the balls......
There where so many games, but to many other children in the pic.. but you can imagine they had so much fun.
Tonight it was Playbackshow.
Kira's girlfriend enterd with the song of Frozen. and finished 2nd !!!!!
Kids had so much fun. Next year the wanne enter too
Normally there are so many more actvitie, hopefully next year better weather I will show you more

Last weekend we went a few day's to my in-laws.
We also went to the swimming pool there, but very fast we needed to go to the doctor with Kira.
She fell very hard on the flour, and I know she always falls unconscious after that, she has that from the moment she was little.
Only as she falls on her head.
This time she fel on the front of her head above her eye so hard hard, that after she was unconscious she started to shock..... I never seen that before with her, and holder her in my hands with her shocking her arms and legs. I got so afraid it looked like a epilepsy-attack. We went to the doctor. as it all took very long, we first needed to get dressed, go to the hospital, I already was thinking maybe it was from the fall.
Mostly with in 30 seconds Kira is her old self and doesn't know what happend.
The doctor looked at her, but all was good, when she has it another time, we need to go back.
So it was a strange day
But for the short time we where swimming they had a lot of fun.. Kira now with a swimming diploma, wasn't affraid anymore, run in too the weather, so great to see.
That afternoon, grandma learn the kids how to play the piano
The song Frere Jacques, after 3 times Kira could play it.. :O :O
I made a movie of it, but my phone isn't in the mood to send it to my laptop.
This weekend I'm going to my little brother he plays the gitar, and I asked him if he wants to learn the song to play, so he and Kira can do it togheter..
So great when Kids play the piano
Noah liked hitting the notes more.. hihi
I had a little Keyboard, so as it is May-vacation we had practice some more

Last week we had another day that is was really lovely..
The past 5 day's I only see RAIN, SNOW and HAIL, then some sun.. every hour it repeats again...
My garden is growing like crazy.......
to bad with the kids having 2 weeks of we can't go outside........
But when it was lovely weather hubby and me working outside to make a green garden..
Above you can see the before....
Bad picture, but you can see hubby working... me taking the picture ( also working, telling him what to do.....)
a big empty place.....
And tada.... my green garden.. I needed to remove a few more plants.. and some put on a different place. In teh summer I will see how it all looks , may in the Fall I can replace a few more plants who are to close to eachother.
Also we cut the grass in a straight line.. got a lot of garden back know, and looking so beautifull
My seeds in house are going so fast, that I already put some outside, and new one inside
We can eat a lot... ( when it all survive the cold storm we have at the moment)

I have been working on a vest-pattern from The Velvet Acorn ( the same designer as the Pink Poncho from my last post)
But I didn't like it........
I pulled it out.. and started to try and make one myself...
On the web I found someone who made a vest from 5 rectangles... in a simple stitch..
I went looking for a special stitch.. found one and started.. really hope it will work,
I have THE vest in my mind that I wanne have for years, but can't find one in the store.. ( just a simple one) so I;m going to try and make it myself
Love the stitch... Hopefully it's not to stiff... but we will see..
And when I just started this one, yesterday a blogger posted a free pattern of THE vest I love to make...
So now..... put this one aside and start that one... or finish this one first not nowing if it will turn out, and then start the other............. so hard... what to we crafters have such a hard life, with all the decisions we have to make what to make........
You will see it soon enough what my decision is....
Then I started another Doll
Hope it will be as pretty as the last one I made...
And a new pattern also is waiting for me to start for a doll. and another one in my stash... hihihihi
See so hard being a crafter...
Also my head if full of sewing plans. ........ My godchild has his first communion in a few weeks, and 2 nieces will be baptized... and I wanne make some new clothing for me and the kids for it... you read it good.. sew/make........ and my FIL is going to retire... wanne make something new for that too...
But it's all in a few weeks..... do I have the time, and will I finish.. or even start.......
So hard... so hard......
But I wanne do it all.......hihihi :) you only live ones, make the best of it.....
I think that's all for today.
I need to get some things ready, Kira went sleeping with a friend yesterday, and tomorrow that friend will sleep over with us... so... enough to do..
I leave you with a pic of some Kingsday crafts from the last years
Bracelets and a pin, Noah has one for on his shirt, Kira for in her hair
I wanna thank everyone for visiting my blog and especially everyone who leaves a comment!!
I love reading them!!
Happy Kingsday to you, Annette!! Looks like a lot of fun in spite of the poor weather. I have never heard of Space Scooters before--that is something my sons would have loved when they were younger.
Kira's fall and the shaking sounds so very scary... I'm glad she is okay and hope she has no more falls.
Your garden looks like it is growing nicely. We have planted peas and beans here, but will wait a week or so until we plant the rest.
Sounds like you'll be very busy with all of your sewing in the next month--have fun! You can do it :)
Looks like you had a wonderful time on King's day!! :)
Sorry about Kira's hurt. I hope she doesn't remember much about it, kids learn to be happy very soon.
Your crochet projects are lovely and you sure have so many things on your todo list. So happy to see your hard work in the garden by telling your hubby what to do:) see, you got a lovely garden!!
glad you had a good King's Day, love your garden, I would get Kira tested for epilepsy just to be sure she dose not have it. With so many diseases now a days you can't take the chance with your children. I had problems with my son and had him tested at Sick Children's in Toronto, Ontario when I lived in Ontario. They found out that one chromosome pair was not the same and he almost had Downe's but he is fine just some metal learning problems but he lives in an apartment in Barrie by himself and dose well. Being a mother you always worry about your children even when they are grown. Big hugs
O, wat klinkt dat naar van Kira. Is het wel weer helemaal over? Erg eng hoor. En wat hebben jullie weer leuke dingen gedaan. Jammer, dat koningsdag zo in het water. Wij hebben er nog geprobeerd het beste van te maken. Maar wat was het koud. En ik hou zo van koningsdag.
Another fun-filled set of activities with your and the kids! Except for that nasty blip with Kiras's fall of course. But she's tough I guess and recovers quickly. You all look so cute in your face makeup. Those scooters look like great fun too.
And now you will have a little musical duo in the family! They sure learn fast.
Have fun with gardening and crafting!
Jammer van het weer dit jaar, hopelijk volgend jaar beter.
Maar gelukkig toch een fijne dag gehad:-)
Ben benieuwd naar de nieuwe pop die in de maak is, wordt vast weer mooi!
