It’s been a beautiful Koninginnedag this year and I’m sure if Queen Juliana would have seen it she would have been very happy on her Birthday. Cora made her own crown in school and couldn’t wait yesterday to get outside. There was already a band playing outside and lots of people out an about and Cora was convinced that the Queen is coming soon too. She got to see Queen Beatrix on TV and we explained that all the children who made a crown can be princess and queen today. I took a long walk through the city with her to pick up the special atmosphere and we went to the playground in the Oosterpark close to the hospital where Cora was born. On the way home we met some goose which really impressed Cora in the middle of the city and stopped by the micro brewery close to our home for some beers outside. It was nice to be in Amsterdam again for Queensday. We had been away the last year.
