What is the right way for saying this in dutch?

 

"I am going home to pick up my wallet."

Google translator says, "Ik ga naar huis te halen mijn portemonnee."
While I think, it is, "Ik ga naar mijn huis om mijn portemonnee op te halen."

Which one do you think is more correct, or are these both incorrect. If so, what is the correct translation?

    Yeah.. Google translate messes up with the grammar often..

    Your thought is correct, altough I would say:
    ''Ik ga naar huis om mijn portemonnee op te halen.''

    So without ''mijn'' before ''huis''.
    By saying ''ik ga naar huis'' it's already clear that you're going to your own house, so you don't need to add ''mijn'' in this case.
