Springtime Family Fun in Amsterdam

May 17, 2019 Visit Europe No Comments Email Email

When Rebecca and Evan Jones decided to take their kids on vacation, they wanted it to be an extra special experience and one that everyone would be able to enjoy. The talked about going on a road trip but decided that it would be better to travel internationally to give their kids more of a cultural experience. After debating several locations, they decided that Amsterdam was the place to go.

Rebecca, who had always loved flowers, wanted to plan their trip to coincide with the annual tulip bloom in the Netherlands, so they scheduled the vacation during the kids’ spring break from school.

“We also decided that this would be a great opportunity to get some pictures together as a family,” Evan said. “Rebecca and I had been thinking about doing family photos during the summer but having them while on vacation would be so much more meaningful.”

After looking at local photographer prices, Rebecca and Evan hired a photographer from Localgrapher to do a family photo shot of them together in the city.

The spring tulips turned out to be even more impressive than Rebecca had imagined. Even her two sons who usually insisted that they didn’t really like flowers found the colorful blossoms to be amazing. Upon request from the family, the photographer made sure to include lots of pictures with the iconic tulips of Amsterdam and the Netherlands in with the family pictures.

“We were really lucky to have a local do the photo shoot,” said Rebecca. “Not only did they know the best places in the city for the time of year, but we also got some really good advice about places we could visit as a family.”

Rebecca and Evan wanted their kids to learn some about the history and culture of Amsterdam, since they were old enough to appreciate art and artifacts. They toured the Anne Frank House, which was the building Anne Frank and her family hid in during the time of the Nazis. The house had been converted into a museum, and everyone found it to be both interesting and sobering. They also made sure to include the Van Gogh Museum on their travel itinerary; even their youngest child was amazed by the collection of work from the famous impressionist painter.

“I think what the kids liked most about the city was the canals,” Evan said. “We spent a lot of time just walking around actually, seeing the neighborhoods or going out to one of the local cafés. The kids loved the bridges and going on boat rides through the city. I’m really glad that the photographer in Amsterdam was able to get some of this on camera. It was really special just to share time together as a family.”

The vacation came to an end all too soon. From tulip festivals to cruising down the canals, the family time together in Amsterdam was full of special and meaningful memories. Rebecca and Evan were happy to see how much their kids learned during their time on vacation; even though it was a fun and relaxing experience, it was also clear that everyone had come away with something deeper than just having fun.

“I was a bit nervous about bringing everyone on such a big trip,” said Rebecca. “I guess it’s normal to worry, but I’m so glad that we decided to take the chance and do it. These memories will stay with the kids their whole lives, and now we have family photos that mean a lot for all of us.”
