We spent the weekend in Amsterdam! We had the best time discovering this unique little city.  The weather was great, the leaves were the prettiest bright yellows and reds, the food was delicious, the people were so warm and friendly, and the city was so alive!

We did a ton of stuff while we were there. We went to Anne Frank’s house and museum, the Van Gogh museum, the Rembrandt museum, ate delicious Dutch pancakes, walked around gorgeous parks, went to a huge fair, went window shopping, watched street shows, people watched, went on a boat canal tour, and walked every inch of Amsterdam. We were exhausted every night after these fun filled days.
Amsterdam was one wild and crazy city that Craig and I fell in love with. We cannot wait to come back to this city again one day.

There are bikes every where! We were amazed by how many people ride bikes. 
Our mirror in our hotel room, I LOVED it.

Me outside the Hard Rock Cafe, where me and my family used to come once a month when we lived in Belgium. It was our little piece of America that we loved coming to!

On the Canal Boat Tour
Our boat tour on the canals was so much fun!

Some of the buildings we saw on our boat tour.

Craig eating a delicious Dutch Stroop Wafle

In one of the many Dutch cheese stores, Craig was in heaven!

Look at all those bikes! 

Craig loved this little car and was tempted to put it in his pocket, literally, and take it home wit him.

The Ann Frank House was incredible.

Look how gorgeous!

I am so in love with this boy.

Unbelievable Dutch Pancakes

Outside of Anne Frank's house

Craig was able to find some of his Mason brothers. Ever since he joined we have all these new friends... haha

We found this huge amazing fair in the center of Amsterdam!

At the fair!

Cobble stones streets with hanging chandeliers over them....absolutely amazing.

Our walk through this gorgeous park. Check out those bright leaves!

A Zombie parade in honor of halloween

Walking in the parade

Things Craig and I love, Diet Coke, burgers, and the Dutch.

Outside of Van Gogh Museum and Rembrandt. 

They had the most incredible street performances, these were some break dancers.

The view at the fair from the top of the farris wheel we went on.

Looking down on the city

I had no idea Craig had such an amazing shot
