This morning, we trekked to Amsterdam for baby Stephanie's appointment at the consulate to register for citizenship and obtain a passport. Not knowing how long we'd be there, we packed Ellie's lunch and extra kiddo supplies. Lucky us! It turned out to be a gorgeous, sunny spring day! The consulate didn't keep us long at all, so we ate lunch in the sunshine and had a play on the Museumplein between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. Ellie made particular use of a large sculpture...

As an update, Ellie's cold has passed, so no more wailing from her. Hooray!
(Now the wailing is all Jennifer's. Lack of sleep--currently four nights' debt--has never been her forte.)
