The Perfect Day

The sunny days in the Netherlands are few and far between, especially on the weekends it seems! But yesterday was the perfect day it was about 75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!  I caught some much needed rays in the backyard while Jackson slept and then we were off for a perfect little date night. (Jackson included)

We went to a nice little steakhouse in Grubbenvorst, we of course didn't have steak because nothing can compare to steak in Iowa. But the food was good and we got to sit out and enjoy the great night! 

Grubbenvorst also has an ice cream shop that has been voted the best in the Netherlands. So of course we had to check it out!  The place was amazing.  Some of the coolest (literally) desserts you have ever seen :)

We stuck to just a basic ice cream in a cup since we were stuffed from dinner. Josh had his usual vanilla- he says this way he can make a good comparison :) or maybe he is just not adventurous?!? My chocolate chip was great while Josh says the vanilla is better here in Asten.

Back at home we went for a nice long walk to enjoy the weather and after putting Jackson to bed had a glass of wine!  Pretty great day if I do say so!! Lets hope for more sunshine in the week to come :)
