If you've ever wanted to drop everything and buy a ramshackle home in the country, Flanders is your place. Open skies, meadows of wildflowers, pet goats. It can all be yours.
We were looking for an inexpensive vacation, to a place within driving distance, and this farm near the Dutch border ticked off all our little boxes. We were able to tour around and return to our little bit of peace and quiet at the end of the day. The girls were all too happy to give goats (Max & Max) their evening treat, even if it meant dodging angry geese to do so.
Part of our welcome package was a box of cat food. Eloise & Claudia waited patiently for the ten barn cats to make their arrival. 
It was worlds away from the city we left and as far as I can tell, we're all rested and restored. The experience made me wax nostalgia about my Grandparent's farm, and I'm glad that the girls got to experience some of what made my childhood so memorable. If it weren't for the rooster waking us up at 5:30 in the morning, I'd say it was a pretty damn near perfect holiday.

Cat food named after a girl! Bring some home with you! Awesome pictures, I'm so glad you had a good time. Well worth going to hell for not telling your grandmother you were going away :)

You mean Fancy Feast isn't a girl's name?!? I want my next daughter to be a "just trying to make ends meet" kind of girl, and I think that name would be great for such a profession.

Love the picture of the girls in the door way . It's very sweet !!..... On the "cat food" note ..... Grade 3, I did a mini skit on that same brand handed to me by my teacher Mr Rosco. None the less tho looks like a great getaway place for You's and the kids to unwind !! :)
