Definitely NO Stitching but FUN!

We had friends who came over from the mainland last FRIDAY and stayed till MONDAY!
Four adults and two kids. One family stayed(slept)in the tent at the backyard while the other couple slept at the playroom, the only extra room we have but atleast big enough for two.

Saturday, we went to "Garnalenvissen op de Waddenzee " (shrimp fish on the Waddenzee). Took some pictures of it but now i can see i haven't had enough, still waiting from my our friends to email some of what they've taken.

Here, we are waiting to take off, while my son Chris complaining that it's a boring trip and so on....(he's been here a few times)

The young couple!

Here's where they let down the fishing net. Sorry can't get a good picture of it.

We were able to see some seals too on the way back

After the fishing trip which was ended at around four and we were able to bring home some shrimps already boiled, we sat down and started eating them.
After half an hour, i had to quit to prepare the Barbeque! After i've taken this picture and sat down myself it started getting dark and within 10 minutes it started raining so everyone had to go in. It was a mess!!! At least we could all sit at the kitchen table, 10 people in all!!

The next day SUNDAY, it was dry but a bit cloudy and windy. Still they wanted to go to the beach(they are from the city) so we went. Oh well, they find it really cold to go in for a included. But DH, Grace and Chris been to the water!

You can see Chris here, not afraid at all!! But i was, as it's near the danger zone, we really have to keep an eye of him.

A view of the beach, not busy at all because of the bad weather!

Finally, here's a picture of the 'Hamster' in his cage! This is of sister-in-laws daughter and asked Grace to take care of while they are on vacation in GREECE for a week.

MONDAY came... after breakfast i had to leave for my work so they had to cleaned up a bit before they went home!

It was quite a fun weekend! Now, my two days work are over and was really busy....more about it next post!!!

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by especially to those who take the time to leave me a comment.
I know i am way behind on blogs and yahoo groups but i am so sorry, just don't have time to come online.

Wow, you've been busy lately with friends and family. No wonder you haven't had time to stitch much. Your earlier post of your Christmas ornament was lovely, it will make a beautiful Christmas ornament.
