Lambs in paddock
One nice Sring afternoon in April I had been promising to take Reagan on a bike ride through a forrest near where I live. As she had just learnt to ride her bike she just wants to do it all the time now... so with a picnic lunch packed we grabbed our jackets and headed out for the afternoon. I hadn't riden with reagan like this before so I wasn't quite sure how she would be with the road and knowing what to do, but my fears were soon laid to rest as she went great.

First we stopped to see some new lambs before makinjg it to a restaurant which Reagan knew of that had a large outside playground, so of course she had to have a play. After this we continued riding along through the forrest and as I had no map I had no idea where we were as we rode. I know in my head a general direction of home was, but this was more fun.

We kept having to stop and rest as Reagan would get tired, but this gave us a chance for a snack or a drink. We actually ended up crossing over a highway at one stage and we were so close to the German border we could actually see the old Border Crossing where you would have to show passports etc, before Europe became free to travel.

After this a strange thing happened. As we were riding along reagan screams out "Look Daddy some Kangaroos"... I was thinking a native Australia Kangaroo in the countryside in Holland??? Not something you would normally see outside a zoo??? Upon closer inspection of these animals there were in fact 3 Wallabies, which are a smaller animal in the same animal group of kangaroos being kept by a private person in their back yard next to their goats as pets!!! I was totally amazed as was Reagan.

So that was our hightlight and in all it was a very pleasent afternoon in a great area of the Netherlands.
