Summer Mini Album: Part 3

Hello again!

I'm sharing the last of the pages from my Summer Mini Album. (Here is part 1 and here is part 2.)

Our trip was winding down but we still had lots to do.

We promised Gabriel a trip to an amusement park while on vacation. So, we all went off to Parc Asterix for the day. It was a beautiful day and we had fun. Gabriel and Nathaniel were disappointed they weren't big enough to ride the big roller coasters.

Then we took a second trip to Paris to visit the Louvre.

I could have stayed there all day.

Of course, the boys didn't feel the same. To be fair, it's very overwhelming - there was/is so much to see,  there were lots of people and it was warm. I did manage to get this family selfie in the Louvre before we left.

The next day we went to Provins. We were only there for an afternoon but it was such fun.

We went there to see the medieval wall around the town and to see the medieval knight show.

It was so much over the top fun. It had knights and princesses and tricks on horses and villains.  It was great.

Before we left, Kiersten celebrated her 4th birthday. Ben and Kiersten became great friends during this trip. I want my kids to know their cousins and that's why we travel to see family so often. 

Then, we left France and headed home. On the way, we stopped in London.

And we took the boys to Hamley's toy store. It's 5 floors of toys and it is amazing.  Ben was delighted to find a giant Thomas...

and a giant Percy. That is heaven for my three year-old.

The morning we headed home, we walked to Hyde Park to play in the sunshine and that's where our amazing wonderful, family trip ends.

The last part of any mini album is about perseverance. There's a plan and there's a process but it's easy to get bored. It's easy to put a half finished album aside thinking we'll take a break and come back to it later. Here's the trick...Don't do that. Stick it out and finish it off.  Then share it with your family. Pick it up and flip through it again and again. Enjoy it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my album.
