Back from the USA

Today Eric got home from a 5-day business trip to Orlando, Florida. The girls and I went to Schiphol to pick him up. The closer we got to the airport the more excited the girls got. Not only because they would see Eric again, but also because of all the planes they saw. Needless to say, we were very happy to see him. And of course he was happy to see us too. When we got home the girls wanted to open Eric´s suitcase immediately, because they already knew he bought them some clothes from GapKids.


Eric called me last Thursday to share some great news. He qualified for the Eclipse event again. A recognition event for all employees who achieved their target. This year we will go to Cayman Islands in June. We will either stay in The Ritz Carlton, Cayman Islands or The Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa. Both resorts look great. Not sure if we will extend our stay this year. Last year in Jamaica it was the first time since we have kids that I went along with Eric again. We were away for 9 days, and I thought that was a bit too long. It is nice to be away together, but I rather spend a few days at a destination closer to home.

We had lunch at home, and afterwards we went into town to do some shopping. Eric bought 2 pairs of shoes, and the girls got new shoes too. Sanne´s winter boots are getting too small now, so we didn´t want to wait any longer. Hopefully the weather gets better soon. Fleur got the pink/orange shoes, and Sanne the blue ones. Sanne´s new shoes look like they were already worn, but they are not. They just have a cool look.
