We've had some fun visitors for the past 2 weeks who just left this morning. Laura, Tom, Ian and Macy! For a week of their time, they went to Belgium and so of course we had to follow! Jeff had a 4 day weekend and we wanted to make good use of every moment! So on friday we woke up at 4am to drive to Bruges since Laura, Kim, and their families were all exploring that adorable city. We have some major FOMO, which is why we woke up early and drove straight there with hardly any stops.
^^ SEE FOR YOURSELF! ^^
walking the streets of Europe with SEVEN kids in tow, NBD. Sometimes I'm like...why don't we have our own reality tv show?
Walking to the town square, starting to get these sweet glimpses of the unique and lovely charm that this city has to offer.
Lyla was also an angel, as per usual. I'm out of words to describe my adoration for this child.
Notre Dame of Bruges
Jeff's one request for the day was that he got his OWN waffle because he was quite bitter about the fact that last time he had to share with Jane.
Charm, in ever nook and cranny, I tell ya!!
Holding hands with her dadda :)
Caught him taking a selfie. Classic Jeff.
These boats totally lured us in, in case you were wondering.
Running away and giggling when I ask to take her picture!
We had such a fun time exploring Bruges altogether. And it was surprisingly not as chaotic as one would assume. Its almost easier when we travel in large packs, because the kids have entertainment in the form of cousins. That leaves us adults better able to enjoy and take in the city. A delightful day spent exploring a new place with people we love; it doesn't get much better than that if you ask me! We all drove back to Kim's house and let the kids play and unwind for a bit before putting them to bed.
