Normally I am very good about getting gifts for my wife prior to the last minute. However for this Mother's Day I did not make time to get a present. The shops typically close prior to my getting home from work and on the weekends we are always together so I didn't get away to get anything. In order to make up for it we went to The Hague to go shopping.
The trip included Mother's day lunch at McDonald's (our first visit in the Netherlands) for a Stroopwafel McFlurry.
We took a bus back home, and on the walk home from the bus stop a biker passed and shouted out a "Go Hawks, I like your hat" (I was wearing a Hawkeye hat). As he continued on he shouted back that he was from Iowa and it was good to see another Hawkeye.
