|Today we enjoyed another family day celebrating Marco's 42nd birthday.
It started off at 10am with Aunt Sjaan (Frank's god mother), who is 84, coming over with her daughter Gofi. Unfortunately Aunt To (the other sister from Frank's late dad) was not feeling well and was unable to come over.
Marco and Sylvia also came and we all enjoyed the various coffee and cakes and lunch. Frank had a great time catching up with Gofi and Aunt Sjaan and later that morning we also had Sylvia's parents (Sjaak and Pauline) with Myrthe popping in. Aunt Annie (where we had gourmet dinner last Wednesday) also came over briefly to celebrate.
A few family photos were made (enclosed) before the van Bokhoven family headed off to Drunen to have a 3 hour lunch at Wijnand- van Delft. We have been there a few times over the years on our visits from Sydney and we always enjoy their food and relaxed atmosphere.
A special way for Marco to celebrate his birthday with his family from Sydney.
At night, we dropped in at Perry & Rianne van Helvoort for a few drinks to celebrate their daughter's (Vera) 12th birthday. We met Francois & Heidi, Erik Braspenning and Richard & Helene Brekelmans.
Perry & Rianne were able to provide us with a few tips for activities in Paris based on their own family holidays there earlier this year.
