Family Photos at YaYa Orchard

I jumped at the chance to get family pictures at our favorite apple orchard.  I was a little disappointed that the blossoms weren’t in full bloom yet, but I think the pics turned out pretty cute.  And nothing has made me feel more middle aged than bringing the dog to family pictures.  I fought a…

Last Day in Berlin

Blog post courtesy of Halle: We started our day by dropping Mave and Gwen off at school, and then the four of us went on the Undervelten tour. It was a tour of an underground bunker where people would go during air raids.  Our tour guide was awesome, and we learned so many cool facts…

Ghent

In the morning we hopped on a train to the exquisite town of Ghent. It was love at first site.  And can you believe all these bikes?  There were THOUSANDS of them at the train station.  I loved it.  We stopped for some Cuberdons, the famous candy of Ghent.  We all thought they were just…
