Our first official stop on our European tour was Amsterdam. It is as beautiful as people have described it to us and more. The canals, the buildings, the culture, it all comes together to make this a wonderful place to be, steeped in history.
Canals and buildings
Cool buildings
We took a boat cruise to see the sights.
I absolutely love how many people ride their bikes in Amsterdam, and take the super-efficient public transit. Here is the bike parking lot at the Centraal Station.

We stayed near the Vondel Park, which was great to walk through with the girls and hit the playgrounds enroute to the museums.

We met up with our friends from Fort Smith; Shari, Natalie, and Dallas. It was great to see them again and even better from the girls’ perspective for 3 new people to jump around on. Thanks guys!
