Spring Sprung in Amsterdam

The weather has perked right up over in Amsterdam, along with the bloemetjes. To celebrate the arrival of Spring and warm weather, we headed over to Amstelpark at the weekend. It’s been a few years since I was last there, and now I wonder why its taken us so long….it is such a cool park for kids!

There’s a large play area with climbing frames, slides and swings and it’s divided into smaller sections, so you can choose age-appropriate activities. There is also a petting farm, midget golf and a cool retro-looking train going through the park.

Lola’s uncles, Marcel and Ramiro, have been away for a while – Marcel and his girlfriend were travelling in India and Ramiro was spending quality time with his family in Uruguay. So an afternoon at the park turned into a chill family reunion, with a lunch of homemade tortilla courtesy of Marcel’s girlfriend Patri. Gezellig!

Pure Markt will take place at Amstelpark over the Easter weekend, so if you haven’t had time to check out Amstelpark yet and fancy an afternoon of organic delights, pop over there on 8 April and combine both!
