holiday wrap

Planes, trains, trams, buses, subways and cars galore!

We are back from Europe and I thought I’d share a mini photo journal. We had a great time, made memories (that hopefully David will even hang on to) and spent time with family.

Day 1. We went to a football match and had dinner at a nearby pub. The pub had a playground which is one of the smartest ideas ever!

Day 2. I went on a lovely 8km run and bought Cadbury chocolate at the local store. The kids played on the trampoline and we all watched Joel’s football match.

Day 3. Up bright and early to catch the train to Brussels and spent the afternoon roaming around the Grand Place.

Day 4. A day in Brussels with the kids including a Lego exposition, the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate, the Pantone Hotel and the Belgian Comic Strip Center. A lovely dinner out in the evening.

Day 6. Another 8 km run and a trip to Barleylands Farm (sorry, no pics … imagine barn animals, slides, bouncy pillows, mini trains and zip lines … my personal nightmare)

Day 7: The three of us spent the morning in London exploring the city and caught an afternoon bus to Oxford to see my cousin and her husband. We had dinner and drinks at the Turf Tavern and walked the trails home.

Day 8: A morning stroll through Oxford and a visit to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. An afternoon bus back to London and curry take-out with the family.
