Fun at the Beach!

Justin also wrote about our time at the beach on his blog, but I am giving you pictures!!  We had a ton of fun!  I’ve said it before, but we are having so much fun getting to know the people of CAI a bit better!  Almost every night in the Hague has been spent with friends!!  So we went to the beach last night because countries were competing against each other in fireworks shows.  The first show was pretty pathetic, but the second one was great!!  Maisie fell asleep for that one of course, but oh well! Here is our journey of the beach trip! Click on picture to enlarge!!

Waiting at the bus stop!  A good time for a photo shoot! 

These are some of Maisie’s favorite people in the Hague! Katie (in the blue sweatshirt) is AMAZING with kids! She is such a good little babysitter!  Jeanie (in the brown sweatshirt) is one of Maisie’s favorites and it is obvious by the way Maisie runs up to her, waves at her, follows her around and plays with her.  Pretty cute stuff.  Then there is Kevin (Jeanie’s little boy who is on her back).  Maisie LOVES Kevin and actually says his name almost perfectly!  “Tevin”.  She tickles him, cuddles with him, laughs with him.  It is great!

Justin played a little volleyball with some of the kids we were there with. To the far left is Jeanie’s other son, Kyle. Then next to him is Bobby and then the three Bos boys, Judah, Joel, and Joshua. Cute boys, eh?

So I notice that the way I put these pictures in that it cuts people off! Sorry Kathy and Rogier! These are the other fun people we spent the evening with! Left picture is Daniel and Kenny.  Middle picture is Sophie (amazing woman) and then Elizabeth and Al. They are newly weds and sooooo sweet. Far right picture is Kathy and Kevin, then Eric (married to Jeanie) and Rogier (married to Sophie).

Jeanie and me! The next picture is a better one of Rogier gazing at the fireworks! Then Maisie and “Tevin” sharing a blanket while watching fireworks!  Soooo cute and cuddly! 

I will end this post with one last picture.  

This is a picture of Justin using the public toilet!!!  OH NO HE DI-INT!!!!

    Ummmmm, WHAT!?!?! No door on the john, whatever, but why the spotlight??? OH, I am so disturbed!

    Whattt??????? Are you serious?? Do women have to pee on that as well? Like everyone watching you wipe and stuff??!! Oh my gosh! Seriously, that is one of those nightmares where I have to go to the bathroom so bad and end up peeing the bed (well, not anymore…but when I was little) because I was dreaming I was on a toilet. But always in my dreams, there was never a door on the stall and I was in a public place. This brought back those nightmares. That is hilarious!

    hahaha! No, those are only for men (I think)!! But better than them peeing on the streets and whatever like in Paris!!

    Yeah, the spotlight is sort of weird! I guess it is to see your “stuff” and make sure your aim is ok??? I don’t know!
