After a full day of travel, Peter, Cristian and I made it to Legoland in Windsor, England. The Eurostar train was fantastic and it was wonderful in Windsor being so close to the Queen (she was in residence at the castle, though we didn't see her out and about!). Check out some of the lego models of world architecture, incredible. Plus, the boys and I had a lot of wet and exciting fun!

Oleksiy in Belgium

How wonderful to have some time with our son, Oleksiy, here in Belgium. He was in awe of Antwerp, had two great days in Gent and Brussels and then traveled with Oksana for some family time in Ukriane. We were so sad to have him return to the States but glad that he's returning with his degree finished and the next chapter of his professional career about to begin.

Our trip to Paris!!

PARIS!!!! What a wonderful trip we had to the city for lovers. Joining our friends, the Williams, in from Singapore, we tour the city for three full days. Sites included, Notre Dame, The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and Sacre Coeur, including the artist district, really cool! We came home exhausted but satiated, filled with the sights and sounds of one of the most amazing cities on the planet, and only two hours away by train! Of course we're going back!
