As the weather is still nice and the girls and I haven't spent that much quality time together lately I decided we would go for a bike ride today. With Jordan on the back of my bike and Reagan riding her own we set off for Ruinerwold, a village about 5 kilometers from our home in Meppel.

On the way to Ruinerwold there are some very nice houses so I took some pictures of those. If it had been up to the girls I would have taken a picture of every horse and cow as well but I got away with taking none... Just before we got to the village of Ruinerwold I saw a sign for an ice cream farm and outdoor playground but suddenly there were no signs anymore.

Don't you hate it when that happens? In the centre of the village there was a take-away so I went in to ask and got some soft-serve ice cream as well. We were told it was about another two kilometers down the same road, and we would see a sign on the left.

We continued the trip and true enough, we found the place. We got there at the same time as a group of about 20 people but managed to go in just before the whole group gathered together. It turned out there was a maze in a corn field, a large outdoor play area, and a cafe. I was expecting to see the ice cream made but this was not possible. We spent a very nice couple of hours here, for more info see my seperate review. After all the cycling, walking and playing we had to go home again on the bike, which fortunately went a lot quicker than expected! I think the girls will sleep well tonight....

I did have a problem with my camera today as the battery I had just charged was flat in a matter of no time so not many pics...
