Our decorated bikes!
Happy Sunday everyone!
This weekend I had a different kind of challenge, it was for the Dutch clubs orange bike parade in Coconut Grove! The challenge was to decorate a bike in orange, be creative and think orange (as in think about Holland)!! Well that was so much fun to do. I went looking around the house with Thijs for all things Dutch and we gathered together quite a few items, flags, windmills, an orange lion, wooden shoes (clogs), a crazy hat, fuzzy orange pen, and orange bells. Then we went out to Michael's to buy some ribbon and flowers. Last night we decorated the bikes and today we went to the parade.
The parade was to celebrate the Queen of Holland's day (Koninginnedag) and to encourage people to forgoe their cars and ride bikes for the day. When we arrived it was like a sea of orange and when we got our free orange t-shirts it was even more orange!!! There were lots of different types of bikes and we all set out on our ride around the grove. After the ride there was a contest for the best decorated bike...and guess what I won!!!!!!! I won a new bike!!!!! Whooohoooo!! I don't win things and I think this is the first time I've ever won anything!!!
The winning bike is the one in the middle!
I still can't believe I won it, I keep going to the garage to check it's real!!!!
Needless to say, no cards this weekend but I hope to post more tomorrow!!
Have a fabulous week.
