Brown and blue

Well last weekend we went on another little adventure.  We went to the town of Utrecht.  It is the oldest city in the Netherlands as well as the 4th largest city. The city dates back to 50 AD so you can imagine the history there.  It has brick roads which look really neat but are terrible for pushing a stroller.  Jackson probably felt like he was on a rollercoaster. It was a workout just keeping the stoller going in a straightline! 

Utrecht is also know for the Dom Tower. It is the tallest church in the Netherlands at 368 feet high. It was amazing to see! The tower was originally part of the church but is now free standing because the church was never fully built due to lack of money and the part connecting the tower to the church collapsed. 

The city has a river going through the center where you can take a boat ride and see the whole town.  We will have to do that next time when Jackson is a little bit bigger!!

There was tons of shopping and lots of places to eat.  You could get 40 roses or 40 tulips for only 5 euro.  We couldn't believe it!!! We had ham and cheese calzones which were fabulous!!

Next time we go we plan on taking the boat tour and will hopefully climb to the top of the Dom Tower.  I guess we will have to flip a coin to see who gets to carry Jackson :)
