Amsterdam museum day

Joe's first semester is over, so he can really enjoy some downtime. With the kids in school, we decided to head to Amsterdam for the first time. Amsterdam has tons of museums and is overall a fun city to visit. Of course when we got to the first museum, it was closed. And wouldn't be open for another hour...... So we started wandering.

We found this ornate old house. Can you imagine living in a house like this?
Joe was excited about all the different bridges.
Joe was plotting and envisioning how he would jump his car or bike off this bridge, as it was halfway up. Unfortunately the drawbridge/pole was made of steel.
Of course it wouldn't be Amsterdam without the cool home fronts
One of the museums we visited was the Rembrandthuis. I have to admit I didn't expect much of this, and expected to be in and out pretty quick. However, we were able to attend an etching demonstration in Rembrandt's very own workshop. It brought back a lot of memories to the printing class of my very first semester at BYU
The guided tour gave some great insights to Rembrandt's life
Time flew by, and before we knew it, it was time to head back home. Hopefully Joe and I can spend similar days like this together again.
