Tank You Very Much

We went to Arnhem in the snow today to visit the museum at the site of a famous WWII battle.

“Look!” I said. “A big, huge tank!”

My dad and my husband looked at each other.

“Um, sweetie?” said my dad. “That’s actually a small tank.”

“But I’m glad you think it’s big and huge,” said Greg. With a wink. As my dad cackled.

In conclusion, I’m traveling with 12 year old boys.

And I fit right in.


P.S. Tanks for hosting us, Mark, Carina and family!

  1. Wow! Strange to think that you were standing there while I was sitting at my desk a mere 7 kilometers away!

    I hope you had a good time over here, despite the weather 🙁 What else did you go see?

      • Ps: the other highlight of that day (besides having Dutch pancakes for dinner) *must* have been the Hema! 😀 Or the windmill in the snow. Or the Dutch Smurf mugs. Or… Beth?

        • The Hema and smurf mugs….Sounds good!

          I live in Wageningen and work in Arnhem. So I pass the Airborne Museum several times a week….But I’ve never been inside.

    • Ooh, that IS strange. Wish we would’ve run into you, Rolien!

      We loved the snow, actually. We don’t get a lot of it in our part of Oregon, so it was nice to have real winter for a day. And so beautiful.

      Other highlights = Carina’s cute kiddos and hagelslag! 🙂

  2. One of my jobs in the naming-team duo of my husband and me is to screen all names for potential embarrassing nicknames. I’m danged good at it, too, because I am a 12-year-old boy.
