Bowser appears to keep growing every day. He even starts to resemble a real human being now. In many ways he still appears to be a baby, for he wears a diaper, cries for no apparent reason and likes spending time with his parents. Yet he is also interested in cars, runs around a lot, plays football, has as many teeth as the average 70-year-old guy and discusses interesting topics at dinner. I wouldn’t call him a full human being yet – his head is still relatively large compared to the rest of his body – but he’s also not really a baby anymore. He’s somewhat in between.

This week Bowser, Anna and I went to the Keukenhof, apparently also known as the Garden of Europe (didn’t know that, learned something new, hope that’s ever gonna be of any use in a game of Trivial Pursuit). It’s one of the world’s largest flower gardens and contains millions of flowers… mostly tulips, of course, it’s in the Netherlands after all. The park is open eight weeks a year, from the end of March to the middle of May, and attracts about a million visitors in those eight weeks. You are probably wondering: Why did you go there? How was it? And did Bowser enjoy it? Tell me all about it! Well… here it comes.
