gelukkig verjaardag...

So it was my birthday while we were in AMS. I warn you that I think very little of my birthday and would much rather forget it. I was very happy to go to blue though. It has gorgeous 360 degree views of Amsterdam and really good brownies. Drinks and Greek food followed plus I got a cuddle from a friendly bar dog. Gelukkig verjaardag! (happy birthday to me!)

making the most of my €...

The last time we were in Europe (in 2008) our dollar was worth .32 euro. It was horrible because we couldn't really buy anything other than gifts for other people and food. This time we could take advantage of the shopping in Amsterdam plus it was my birthday so I picked up lots of goodies!

snow day in ams...

On our first day in Amsterdam we were lucky to see snow. We flew in around 7am and spent the day exploring the city. It was beautiful under a blanket of white.
