When he's between Wim & Bart, Marc doesn't look tall
We'll have to try this again in a few years

Westland and surrounding areas



Typical Westland picture - Green Houses-

Knot willows

Domkerk De Lier

A lot of trampolines were low, dug in.

Sheep & Lambs

Look at the rectangle eyes

It's the season for lambs
this one is so small it has to reach for milk

M&M Margreet & Marian
went with us to look at the newborns

They are cutely speckled

The older ones are allowed outside

Rounding them up for the night

The next day when the weather was nice the lambs went on pasture

When you bike around there are sheep and lambs everywhere

spring is beautiful

Home Again

I will put some more picture up from the Netherlands later
but for now we are home again
As usual our car was the dirtiest in the parking lot
I washed it before we left last week

I forgot to make a picture of the Dutch gas stations
