Daughter was on adventure today. Together with me and the Man she went all the way to Amsterdam to watch art @ Unseen Amsterdam.

The adventure started by going to the train for an hour long trip to the capital.

Then Daughter saw Amsterdam for the first time, though the concept of what is and isn’t Amsterdam is still a bit hard to grasp.

The big bonus during this adventure was meeting Oma and Opa in Amsterdam (as long time fans of this event the instigators of this trip).

While Daughter chose Oma to lead the way, the Man and I had some time to enjoy all the photos, exposed for the first time ever during this event (hence the name: Unseen). The Man almost got seduced by an artist to buy some of her work, but used my difference in taste as an excuse not to let go of a couple of thousand euros.

Afterwards we treated ourselves to ice cream since it was a warm sunny day (and you never know when’s the last warm day of the year so better enjoy it while it lasts).

An unexpected visit to the First Aid post at Unseen (something to do with an unnoticed step in the pavement and Opa going down on his knees, which resulted in a heavily bleeding knee) interrupted the lovely day a bit, but with proper bandages in place Daughter and I went back to our home town together with Opa and Oma, while we left the Man in Amsterdam (something to do with a boys’ night out with his brother in law). Daughter had a nap on my lap while squeezed in between three others on the train (rush hour). Also a first time.

Daughter ended her adventure with eating a pancake at our local pancake restaurant and seducing Oma to read her a bedtime story. The rest of the family is now pretending to watch an episode of a favourite TV series of Opa and Oma, but at least one fell asleep already (nine o’clock while writing this) and one is typing a blog post.

And so an adventurous day ends.
