Luxembourg

Our next stop was Luxembourg. I loved it...SO gorgeous! Above is Jarom in front of the Palace of the Grand Dukes.

It was quite humbling to be in the Luxembourg American cemetary and memorial.
We got to see Patton's grave.
Jimmy found a cute little frog friend...ew, sick!
Look at the cool chimney.
To entertain the boys we gave them a toy catalog and crayon. We told them to circle the toys they wanted. I think it turned into torture rather than fun, haha! Jimmy was sad by the end thinking of all the toys he wanted. Woops!
Such gorgeous views

The Casemates du Bock were pretty cool...lots of stairs though! I was impressed how well the boys handled it with their little legs.
I was also impressed with how well the kids did in the car. We did a lot of driving but thankfully did pretty well to split it up so we weren't in the car for too long at a time. The above picture was taken when we had to take a little stop and let the kids stretch and Myra eat.
Jimmy thought it was so cool that he had his own bed. He didn't even care that it was a play pen! :) The boys loved staying in all the different hotels.

Absolutely gorgeous! What awesome adventures you had!!! I'm so jealous.
Flanders Field in Belgium is pretty cool too. There's also trenches you can walk through... near Ieper.

Luxembourg looks amazing! We have not been able to get over there. You really should have invited us to come along.

Yes Chris, it was amazing. You guys really missed out. We would've invited you but then we would've had to hang out with you the whole time. :)

Your "woops" at the end of the toy picture cracked me up! And the one of you two is sweet.
