Today we took the bus to Uden to find a lunch box.  An all day pass is 3 euro and kids under 3 are free.  We got off at the bus station which was the last stop, and tried figuring out which way the arrow was pointing to go to the Centrum, the center of the town.  Luckily a dutch lady stopped and asked if we needed help and pointed us the right way!  We walked around a bit and found a store called Hema that has children's clothes but also looked like it had household good as well.  It actually had a little bit of everthing.  We were able to get a gym bag and a lunch bag.  Not sure if it's actually for a lunch but it will work.  It needed to be a good size to hold lunch and both snacks!

We ate lunch at a cafe, we could decifer most of the what was on the menu, just not the details like tomato and cucumbers and things like that.  The waitress came to take our order and when we stared blankly at her and said umm... she said 'Oh, you're English!'  and then we asked her what was good.  Brandon had a club sandwhich that had a bunch of vegetables and hard boiled eggs and bacon bits.  I ordered a fish sandwhich that had salmon and a white fish on it, plus some kind of white spread, something that looked like sunflower seeds, and bacon bits.  Cody had a hamburger and Brice shared with all of us.  Everything came with a little salad on the side that had corn and kidney beans in it.  That was actually really good.  I think those were Brice's first kidney beans, and he liked them!  Hmmm............just had deja vu.

When we came back we put Brice down for a nap and I walked to Volkel to go to the Jumbo Supermarket.  Here it isn't very big, but it has a lot of stuff.  I got everything for Cody's lunches plus some other drinks and snacks for us.  It's already getting tiring having to eat out for meals twice a day.  Luckily we were asked over for dinner tomorrow night, and Monday we are going to a BBQ!! 

Here are some pictures:

Most of the smaller roads are brick, not paved
