Ted's Visit

Ted made one of his favorites, eggs. Such little things make him happy!

He spent some time watching tv with Angel.

Some time outside with Moe.

And then some couch time with him.
But mostly, Angel and Moe fought for Ted's attention.

I know I took more pictures of Ted........

Next Bracelet - Margie's

Margie's Bracelet was Nature inspired. In going with my button theme I picked a color that reminded me of the Ocean and beads to remind me of Sand. I love this type of charm, hope she does also!

Belgium and France

I took over 700 photos and narrowed it down to these to share! CLICK on the pictures if you want to see them larger. It was an amazing time and you'll have to facebook me if you want to see any more of them! Enjoy!
I finished these earrings on the flight over!
We boarded our bus and headed for Waterloo and found this enchanting little cafe. Then it was back to Brussels and we found this most amazing restaurant, just look at the Paella!!!! After dinner we strolled around and found this lovely place.
The next day we drove to Brugge to see the hall where the kids would be performing. It's a most impressive building, don't you think??? While the kids were setting up Jonathan and I had to have an authentic Belgium Waffle! It was worth every calorie!
And then finally, the concert! What an amazing experience!
The weather held up for us and the marching band was able to peform in the town square. The next day we boarded our buses and headed to Paris.
We stopped along the way for a bit of lunch and a little exploration.
And then finally we arrived in Paris! What a wonderful site!
The next day we arrived at the park for the American Festival.
It was quite an interesting portrayal of American culture.
It was a perfect day!!!
Nothing like springtime in Paris!
We then had a little more time that evening to explore Paris on our own.
How could we not go back to the Eiffel Tower? It is simply amazing.
The next day the kids were invited to perform in the park.
This just took my breath away!

Then it was time for our farewell dinner.

And our last glimpse of Paris at night.
