We are having guests!!!! Menu Plan Monday #58

I am so stinking excited! After a great weekend in Italy two weekends ago our friends have made their way through Europe and their last stop is Amsterdam!!!! I am super excited to show them around the city. I hope this is just the start of more visitors...hint, hint-especially to my Mom & Dad ;)

Anyway, this past weekend we had a great mix of busy family time and family down time.

Friday we started off by meeting the hubby at his work and we went off to Kermis at Dam Sqare.


This is  a super fun little fare, very small as it fits in just one square block, it sets right in front of the palace.

There are about a total of 4 rides and a fun house. There are tons of games and food. Now, I am not going to lie. Ya know how in the US you can got to a fare and get a bracelet to ride a bunch of rides for like $25? No, not here...you pay per ride. 


Yes folks, I said per ride. You would think initially this is a decent deal, especially if you only want to ride one or two rides...but no, there rides are at minimum €5 and go up to €7! I was shocked. Especially with as cheap as the Dutch tend to be I thought they'd be somewhere from €.50-€3...so, if you go, as these run I believe about once a season or so have the money ready!

My kiddo and her friend did have an absolute blast though so it was completely worth the cash we forked out! Plus while they were riding rides the hubby and I got in some nice date time walking around and enjoying all the lights and music.

Saturday we relaxed. Hubs got in some quality video game time and I slammed through a bunch of projects I had been wanting to get done.




Sunday was of course Cheer Day.


My kid is so awesome and I am so proud of her for doing these stunts...she went from level 1 to level 5 this year...at least stunt wise (cheer is really different over here lol) so I am super happy she is giving it her all and really hitting these stunts!

Once we got home we all relaxed together and did some reading and writing.
