sketch #6 on X-mas and B-day cards challenge

Can't believe it's Monday evening already.
This weekend was a lot of fun and a bit of work.
Last Friday I took my mum to a crafting show in Utrecht (a hour drive when there are no traffic jams). At first I didn't want to go, but as some of you know my mum has been in the hospital for about 8 times in the last year. Finally she's starting to feel better and I thought a nice day out would do her some good. We both had a great time and did buy some nice things. It was so great to see my mum smiling and haveing a good time.
Saturday it was a busy day at work and that night we had our little niece over to spend the night.
She's adorable and very easy going, but when you are 1 year old everything is very interesting, so I needed eyes in the front and back of my head.
Sunday afternoon we took our girls to a indoor playground. They also had the time of their lives overthere. After 3 hours of running, jumping and climbing the lights went out as soon as we were in the car.
