Wed. June 25 ~ Apeldorn

Today was 67 years in the making.
67 years ago my grandmother -Gerri Nieuwenhuis Pipping- left Apeldorn, Netherlands and immigrated to Grand Rapids, Mi with her family.  Today Micah and I traveled by train to Apeldorn.  First, we visited the queen's palace there - The Palace Het Loo.  A beautiful palace and gardens that the royal family lived in till after WWII.  They Micah and I went on an adventure and found the house the house that my grandmother lived in, the pharmacy where she worked and the bakery that my grandfather worked in - it was a dream come true!  It was a fabulous day!
