Europe!

August 31, 2016

As I mentioned in my last post, we cut our Westy Trip short when I heard that my mom had been hospitalized where she lives in Europe. Upon reaching home we decided to go to Gent, Belgium to be with her. It was an unplanned trip and I didn’t take our camera but I do have some fun Instagram photos of our trip to share. Here were some of the highlights!

The Gravensteen Castle:

We also squeezed in a whirlwind trip to Paris:

With a visit to the Louvre:

And, of course, the Eiffel Tower:

We also ate lots of yummy food (especially broodjes and ice cream), walked a ton, took the train, the tram, and the bus. We met many of my mom’s wonderful friends and were moved by their generosity. We visited my mom daily and I’m happy to report that she is doing much better now.

Time to come home:

And we made it back to California just in time to celebrate a birthday with this guy!
