The last time we visited Amsterdam we didn't have a very great experience. If you'll remember, we ended up in the Red Light District and everything was just so dirty and smelly. My friend Portia promised to show us a different side to Amsterdam, which was, in fact on the entire opposite side of where were. There is amazing open air park with a big reflecting pool and surrounded by museums, the Van Gogh Museum, Rijk Museum, I think the Rembrandt Museum and a few others. We actually had amazing weather so this trip completely changed my opinion of Amsterdam.

|If I remember correctly, this was the church that Anne Frank could see out of a tiny slit thru her window.|
|Her view was kind of like this one. It's a really beautiful church, though isn't it?|
|Spencer was entertained for a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long time chasing these birds. It was pretty addicting to watch him shrieking and giggling and not being scared of them at all and getting really close to them.|
Tomorrow: Holland's Tulip Festival, again!
