That night we had some dinner in the hotel bar where we sat and played games and ate dinner it was a fun day. We were all wiped out and headed to bed.
Once we were done with lunch and shopping we headed to the NEMO science museum. What a great place for all of us. It was very interactive and the kids loved it. It was a very cool building with a roof top that was huge. We closed the place down and we probably could have spent another two hours there.

After, we were done at the Museum we headed out for some Pancakes. We did not have to go far and the kids LOVED them. Jon not so much but he settled on an omelet. It was fun to see the city at night. It is very pretty with all the lights.

After the museum we headed to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. This is the first place we went to eat that had a kids menu! The kids were in high heaven with their chicken nuggets and French fries. However, K did order a chicken sandwich so he may be getting more worldly with his food choices!
After lunch we walked through Vondel park which is similar to NYC Central Park. It was fun to see but we were all cold. So we walked over to the Van Gough museum but it was closed for construction. Bummer! We then walked around a bit more but decided soon there after to head back to Central Station so we could do our souvenir shopping.
The girls each got a sweatshirt and K got a fut ball. They are all happy with their purchases. After we got the shuttle back to the hotel to pick up our bags. We were going to grab a cab to the other hotel but we were encouraged to take the train as taxis are very expensive! So we headed back to Central Station with all our luggage and walked to the train part. We became very comfortable with the mass transportation here! We were proud of ourselves.

We thought before we went to Amsterdam that we would get to see the tulips in bloom. However, they are experiencing the coldest spring in 60 years so the tulips were not in bloom. It was disappointing but we did have a wonderful time. It was a great trip!
