We took a long train ride through Delft and Rotterdam to the small town of Barendrect where my mothers father, Adrianus Barendregt, was from.
We cruised the local cemetary and think we found a few ancestors
Just a small sampling of the tulip fields that were all across the countryside - I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
If the wooden shoe fits.... a rainy day in Zandaam

We had the best weekend with all the grandkids. We took the Grand Canyon Railway from Williams, Arizona to the South Rim. We hiked down the Bright Angel Trail before the rain (and not very far)
Disneys Christmas Carol train is touring the entire US this summer to promote their new movie coming out for the holiday season. It was fun to see how they do this new form of animation. We even got to see a sneak preview of this Jim Carey movie. Look for it around Thanksgiving.
Red was our favorite cowboy entertainer on the train. Have Snyd play her harmonica she won from Pops for you!
