Rigby fam visits Amsterdam!

We just got Chase’s family visiting here in Amsterdam for a week!
We are so happy they fit it in and made it happen before we leave
while we’re still living here, because now they will always know
this Europe stage and be able to picture our little life here.

We spent time in Amsterdam and also went to Berlin + Prague
this week, so it was a jam packed time. I can’t wait to share more
from Germany and CZ, but here are some Amsty photos to begin!Desktop^^ Anxiously awaiting our visitors at the airport,
and on the train back into the city center. Yay! ^^

IMG_0009 The first morning we strolled to brunch and along the Bloemenmarkt ^^
IMG_0016We stepped into the darling “Henri’s Little Cheese Museum”
for lots of samples & a demonstration on cheesemaking.

IMG_0013 Everyone left with a block of the green pesto cheese after sampling it ^^
IMG_0020 IMG_0022 More tulips along the market ^^ It’s a shame you can’t bring the bulbs home through customs!
IMG_0033Haha, my cute mother-in-law in her Dutch clogs ^^
IMG_0041We strolled plenty of markets, from Nieuwmarkt to Noordermarkt ^^

IMG_0040 IMG_0042 IMG_0044 I set up a free walking tour for us through Amsterdam, (just based on
tips) and we LOVED it! You just reserve a spot on this site. Our guide
was great and took us through really unique areas we hadn’t been to!

Chase’s mom has the grandkids call her Mimi, so we had to snap a

picture at this cute shop. Soon she’ll be Mimi to our little one!

IMG_2989 So fun to be together and pregnant at the same time with Chase’s sister ^^
She is due right after us, and they are both girls!!
IMG_2968We had some grey weather during their visit, but it didn’t stop us!

We realized it has been almost a year since we’ve seen them,
since we were in Salt Lake last spring and then moved over here.
Rigby Fam in Amsterdam!1The girls went to the purse museum which was the best little outing ^^
IMG_0092We had an authentic Dutch dinner at Moeders which was the greatest place! I’m
sharing more about it soon, but it is definitely the place for a taste of the Netherlands.

IMG_0101Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset We crammed all 6 of us into our Amsterdam place thanks to the sofa
bed and air mattress (Chase almost passed out blowing this up – ha!)
IMG_0103We loved showing Chase’s family our Amsterdam life.
Thanks for coming all the way here!!
