This morning we took off for the market, and the bridge was up: we actually got a kick out of that. Hey, we're on vacation....then Mark and I went to the little bakery around the block, got some food to go, and then behind Cari's back we went to McDonalds so Mommy could get a diet coke. Yea, we did it. Sorry Cari: Mommy and Daddy love you, but Mommy wanted a drink and she wanted it now! I got a kick out of the 'I'm loving it' on the cup. The young lady who waited on us sure wasn't loving in. Not one smile, and I'm sure Ronald McDonald would be very sad at this. Oh well, Mommy got her diet coke, or should I say coke light? We took our food and contraband coke light on over to a bench by one of the canals and we sat and watched the many and many boats that went by. So many boats!! It was a HOT Saturday and folks were taking advantage of it. Then we went back to Cari's, hung out for a while, and then rode the bikes over to a cafe on the Ansel River and had some really good beer and some bitteballen (don't sue me over the spelling....sigh...). Cari had told us about this so we gave it a try. It's gravy that's breaded and fried. Yep. Gravy. Breaded. And fried. Different. Oh so different. We then rode the bikes around since it's our last night with the bikes, and when we went to the park by the Van Gough Museum we found that for the upcoming Queen's Day that a crown had been placed on the 'I Am Amsterdam'. We tried taking some pictures, but as you can see we didn't do very well. We're going to go back tomorrow and give it another go in the good ole daytime. Happy upcoming Queen's Day everyone!!!
