Paul and the boys were very tired when they arrived as they had also found it hard to sleep on the plane,
but they were determined to last the day.
We all had breakfast together as mum opened her presents, which she loved. She got a jacket and a Cd from me (Amy Winehouse, horrible), perfume and a belt from the girls, a beautiful watch from Els and Wim and some new boots from Oma.

We all had some lunch and then headed into Hoorn to do some shopping and have a look around. We had planned to ride in but the weather was horrible and was raining so we managed to all cram into the car, with the boys in the boot, and set off.
It was also Andre's birthday so he popped in later in the afternoon so we could all say 'Haaaaappppppyyy Birthday!'
That night we had a birthday meal of chips, croquette and a few other deep fried, unidentified meat products that i had absolutely no interest in trying.
After tea Remy, Harry, Lisa and I rode to her work at Betje Wolf Plein, which is the shopping plaze where both Lisa and Emma work, so we could rent some movies from Lisa's work. In our excitment of the day we actually forgot to bring the movies home with us, which we all realised once we got home, so we hoped back on our bikes and rode back to pick them up.
We were supposed to be waiting for Andre to come back from his brothers house so him and mum could have their birthday cake but he ended up running late to we all decided it was best just to start on the cake
