Boerbert: a dutch farm fairytale

also the beginning of spring break, 2012:

we arrived at the farm a little early, but we were welcomed with smiles. our apartment is adorable. (i'll make sure to get some pictures)

we were invited to roam about freely. my children are beside themselves. we were also invited to watch the cows milked at 5pm.

i fixed up a quick lunch, then forced everyone out to find this alleged "dutch target"...as in Target.
we found it next to this-
are ya kidding me!!!!

i'm in photography heaven....and yes, HEMA is everything i was hoping for and more!

i am totally infatuated with this place. the canals, the architecture, the people, the general vibe...

i really want to buy a house here. or a farm. seriously.

here are a few pics upon our return for the "milking"-
