A trip to Zwolle with lots of Mice

Yesterday my owner and me went on a trip to Zwolle as my owner told me something happened that needed celebrating.

At the station in Zwolle we saw a bike decorated with flowers. I wonder if it was for the celebration.

When we came to the house of my owner's brother and his partner there was a big mouse cake with small mice around it.

And even more cake and chocolate covered with white and pink coloured anise seeds, which in the Netherlands are called 'Muisjes' (little mice). so what's up with all the mice?

It turned out a baby was born!
Here's my owner holding her niece.

The mice thing turned out to be to celebrate the birth. There's pink and white mice when it's a girl and blue and white when it's a boy.

Congratulations!!! We like eating beschuit met muisjes! I always think it's a miracle when I see the little person that was a very big tummy for so long for the first time!!! I specially like the little hands and fingers and feet... And every time you see them again they have changed and can do something new that they didn't do the last time you saw them...
