A trip to Zwolle

Today my owner and I went to the birthday of one of my owner's nephews. This is the card we bought him for his birthday: Feest Varken = Party Pig. It's a common name here to use for someone who has his/her birthday.

First we went to the trainstation on bike and we parked the bike in the bike parking garage at the trainstation.

A look at the railwayplan. The red arrow points to Groningen and the blue one to Zwolle where we were going.

On board of the train. I love trainrides, there's always so much to see.

We brought something to drink and eat for the hour long journey.

When we arrived in Zwolle my owner called her mother who then drove to the station to pick us up as she was going to the birthday too. While we were waiting for her to arrive I had a look around and discovered this pond.

There were also lots of these yellow flowers close to the pond.

This picture we took for Coco. It's a small sticker that was on a lamppost. It says: "Adoption, Kim(scribbled blob) Brit(scribbled blob)Thanks for your visit!"

My owner's nephews had lots of dinosaurs, but they were all very small so I wasn't scared of them.

Hmmm... They also had this cool dinosaur book. They really must love dinosaurs. Luckily my owner knew about that so had bought more dinosaurs as birthday presents.

Here I'm on my way home again. It was a rainy and windy day so I was glad that we didn't have to wait long for the train to arrive.

I crawled in my owner's bag and took a nap on the way home as you can't see anything out of the window anyway when it's dark and raining.

I don't believe I've ever seen that many bikes in one place. Here, there may be a bike rack with four or five slots, but a garage? No way. I guess that's why we're all such chubbies. :)

Funny that little nephews all have their own favourite toys! G.'s friend in Brittany (who has the same name as your owner) was very exited about the bikes too, when they were in Groningen together she kept asking G. to make pictures for her with all the bikes standing everywhere :-).

What a nice post. I love the flowers, they are beautiful. Party pig? That's funny. It's called Party Animal over here...but that usually applies to older people...and people who party hard. ;)

I like party pig better myself! ^_^
