Springtime Summary

I know I haven't been posting much here lately but that doesn't mean we've been sitting around doing nothing.  On the contrary!  I also know that it's technically summer, but since the kids are still in school, in my mind it's still springtime.  So, with that in mind, here's a picture review of what we've been doing in the last month or two:

Hanging out at Parc Merveilleux,

where we renewed our love affair with these adorable little monkeys:

They're called Tamarins and I WANT ONE!!

Walked around the lake in Echternach where we stopped to make a few daisy chains:

and to jump on the crazy bungee trampoline:

 Took a few swimming lessons:

And visited the zoo at Amneville, France:
These two little monkeys were much cuter than the real thing.

 Made friends with the neighborhood cows:

Ate some popsicles and enjoyed their aftereffects:
Made only with natural coloring, I'm sure.

 Spent a lovely afternoon enjoying the free games and activities set up in honor of Luxembourg's National Day:

While Kate visited the face-painting booth,

Will decided to try something a little more strenuous:

He made it up about 15 feet before declaring it impossibly hard.

And stopped at a scenic point to enjoy one of Luxembourg's most beautiful views...
This picture reminds me of why I love Luxembourg so much.  Look at that view!


  1. That picture of Kate in the swim hat and suit is KILLING me! I don't think I've ever seen anything so cute. She looks like she's from the 1950s. Look at this painting:

  2. You're right, she does look like something out of the 50's. I love that painting!
