Kings Day..


Last Saturday we celebrated our Kings birthday. In former years we always had a queen so we had Queens day as long as I can remember. It always is a day full of celebrations and fun. In our town we have a freemarket what used to be for children to sell the stuff they didn’t want any more or outgrew. These days many people try to sell their goods.

We also always have a fair very near our home . I love to walk around and look at all the people. So much fun to enjoy.

Here a small impression of the day.





This little guy is dancing away. So cute.



The little girl is trying to sell her bike. So much to sell…




This little doll had so much fun on that little motor bike.



And  another one having fun.



So cute and to win.




wild life for the kids.




Such a crowd and lots to play on.


A few more photo’s

Mooie kleurige en fleurige foto's van de eerste Koningsdag, Riet. Die feestdrukte kan mij niet zo bekoren, daarom heb ik Koningsdag grotendeels in alle rust in de natuur doorgebracht.

Het was een mooie Koningsdag en wat hadden we mooi weer. Omdat manlief nog niet helemaal hersteld was (en is), zijn we niet al te lang weggeweest, maar lang genoeg om van de gezellige sfeer te proeven :-).

Fijn weekend, Riet! Liefs, Ingrid

Happy Pink Saturday, Riet. This looks like such a fun day. That little dancing boy is so cute. And, I would have wanted to buy that pink bicycle.♥

Thank you for joining us today, and for always making Pink Saturday special.

Ha lieve Rietje, wat een zalige impressie van een onvergetelijke
dag, Koningsdag, wel even wennen
de naam hé. En wat hebben we het getroffen met het weer.

Je foto's zo heerlijk kleurrijk,
en zo mooi de sfeer weergevend
van een fantastische dag.

Dat meiske met haar fietsje, toen
ik de foto groot had geklikt las
ik 7 euro voor de fiets????
Dan zal hij wel heel snel
verkocht zijn want de fiets zag
er perfect uit.

Heerlijk altijd al die kinderen
zo zien genieten van alles.
En wij natuurlijk ook volop.
Prachtige serie van de feestdrukte.

Heel fijn weekend wil ik je wensen,

Veel liefs,

Looks like such a fun day! Love the happy faces on the children!

Love the photos of the children, Riet. It is so interesting to me to watch the King and Queen on their day. We don't have that in America. Their children are darling, too. xo Jenny

Leuke foto's Riet, heb de festiviteiten dit jaar gemist, maar het ziet er elk jaar toch hetzelfde uit.

Looks like a delightful Kings Day . . .
Love seeing all the children . . .
And the Oldies in Orange . . .

A Kings Birthday - a new treat for you all! Love all the orange in patriotic salute! You're pictures of the children are wonderful. Every time I've been in The Netherlands I have taken photos of a few children. All children are beautiful but there is something about the children I've seen there that always catches my eye. They are just gorgeous - great genes, I guess. I have absolutely zero Dutch in my ancestry so, along with my actual UK and Italian genes, I consider Dutch my "adopted" nationality because, you know, I adore your country!
Have a lovely weekend!

Oh that is a fun weekend. I have enjoyed those times when kids were small and even with hubby in Kingston, Ontario Canada.

Also back then was the street busters and now they travel world wide.

What a good way to celebrate. I wondered if the celebration is always on a certain day or if it is actually on your King's real birthday.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Those children were having so much fun!! :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

What a colourful celebration. Love the photos of the little ones enjoying their day. But the real gem is the little guy dancing. What a cutie.

Everyone looks to be having a good time on your first (in a long time) King's Day celebration!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The little fellow is so cute, glad he had a good time. You know Riet, we've had a queen during my lifetime too but one day will also have a king again.
Have a good week!

Hello dear Riet

The weather looks wonderful - the perfect time to be out and about taking photos and enjoying the happy scenes.

A great idea for children to have the opportunity to sell their things - a good way to learn the value of money!

Lovely post

Hoi Riet, wat gezellig dat je weer met je kleindochters naar Londen gaat! Een paar dagen geleden kreeg ik trouwens een hele lieve reactie op mijn blog van je kleindochter Megan. Ze gaf mij een paar hele lieve complimenten. Uiteraard heb ik daar op gereageerd :-)!

Ik wens jullie samen heel veel plezier!! Liefs, Ingrid

What a fun post, Riet! It's a brilliant idea to have a special day for children to sell things they don't need anymore. That teaches them many good life lessons. Christa
