Paris

Q14A9012copyQ14A9014copyQ14A9017copy

After London we hopped the train and went to Paris.

Q14A9022copyQ14A9026copyQ14A9029copy

Paris was gritty and crowded

Q14A9030copyQ14A9032copyQ14A9033copy

But very beautiful

Q14A9034copyQ14A9035copy

We found a car for Blake- one that looks like it might float

Q14A9036copy

We ate lots of food

Q14A9069copy

and picked up a few gifts for the kiddos

Q14A9037copyQ14A9042copyQ14A9043copy

And of course saw the sights. (iphone pic)

The weather was perfect

Q14A9076copyQ14A9080copyQ14A9083copy

And the buildings were amazing

Q14A9088copyQ14A9090copyQ14A9096copy

There were cheap trinkets everywhere

Q14A9100copy

No idea what this was about

Q14A9103copyQ14A9105copyQ14A9109copyQ14A9110copy

The tower and these houseboats….

Q14A9112copyQ14A9116copyQ14A9119copy

Since Andy was there for work we had to go check out the A&F store. There was a line

Q14A9152copyQ14A9154copyQ14A9165copyQ14A9169copy

It was a crazy cool store

The tower at night was super cool too ๐Ÿ™‚

Q14A9202copyQ14A9228copyQ14A9229copyQ14A9243copy

We took a boat ride and it was perfect

Q14A9256copyQ14A9269copyQ14A9279copy

These house boats are so cool

Q14A9281copy

And that pretty much wraps up our trip to Paris. Our flight leaving was delayed 7 hours so we spent the entire day int he airport and then flew to Toronto where we of course missed our connecting flight so we had to spend the night. It took forever to get home and after a week being gone I was ready to see my kiddos and pups!

Hannah - I’m finally coming up for a little air…till I start on the next wedding. I posted a few things on the blog..it’s bothering me because I’m forgetting details. It makes me feel better that you are behind too ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve always wanted to see the tower…but Paris has never had much draw for me. London seems more my speed. However, your pictures make me want to go see it. And those houseboats!! They are super cool. So sleek. I love them.

London

Back in October Andy had a work trip to London and Paris and I decided to tag along. I think I wrote about how I was going but I never posted the pics.

Q14A8908copy

Because he was working I was on my own while we were in London so I wandered around the parks

Q14A8911copy

I was really thinking that I wouldn’t like London very much but I loved it

Q14A8914copy

I felt totally safe wandering around on my own.

Q14A8921copy

It was so pretty

Q14A8930copy

Seriously, Fall in London. It was the first time I had ever wandered around in a different country by myself.

Q14A8939copy

I highly recommend it.

Q14A8943copy

Andy kept texting me “join us for afternoon tea”

Q14A8944copy

I kept saying “no- I’m good!”

Q14A8949copy

We hooked up with one of Andy’s friends from High School. That was very cool

(iphone snaps)

22532024007_6b199c5e78_z22532078638_0d0512d819_z

And then I handed him my camera…

Q14A8951copy

He now lives in London (former Texan) and showed us all around

Q14A8953copy

He took a few pics of us ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the only ones I make an appearance in. SO very grateful for these.

Q14A8961copy

London was so awesome during the day but even better at night

Q14A8973copyQ14A8974copy

So very clean.

Q14A8978copy

This night was probably my fave night of the trip

Q14A8982copy

Need some WiFi?

Q14A8994copy

Such a cool place

Q14A8997copy

Paris pics next!

Hannah - Seriously. These are beautiful. I can’t imagine strolling around London by myself. That sounds really awesome. Just to stroll and absorb everything…So cool.

Looking fir a tree

We managed to get all 4 kids to head out to the tree farm

Starting with iPhone pics

These boys ๐Ÿ™‚

Untitled

This pic cracks me up

Untitled

So happy to have both older boys with us

Untitled

Moving on to big camera pics

Q14A0911-Editcopy

We go to the same farm every year.

Q14A0915-Editcopy

This year was super cold but the kids were troopers

Q14A0918-Editcopy

It was a little muddy but the bus zoomed right along

Q14A0923-EditcopyQ14A0924-Editcopy

Q14A0925copy

This kid has changed so much in the last couple of years

Q14A0930-Editcopy

So has this one

Q14A0931-Editcopy

This one is still my little dude though

Q14A0932-Editcopy

We picked a tree pretty quick

Q14A0937copyQ14A0938-EditcopyQ14A0942-Editcopy

Austin has been through a lot of iPhones lately. His new 6 was stolen at school so he started using an old 5 that we had and he dropped it and it shattered. It is now taped together so it won’t cut him when he slides his finger on it.

Q14A0944-EditcopyQ14A0951-Editcopy

The twins

Q14A0959-Editcopy

And off we go with the new tree

Q14A0966-Editcopy

And then it was off to dinner.

Q14A0979copy

A successful day!

Hannah - I’d say that is a pretty awesome day! I’m glad you are still blogging. I’m so far behind ๐Ÿ™ I hate busy season.

A boy, a pile of leaves, and a Golden Retriever

Q14A9621copyQ14A9625copy

I know I said I was going to be better about blogging. I kinda failed.

Q14A9627copyQ14A9629copyQ14A9630copyQ14A9631copyQ14A9633copyQ14A9634copyQ14A9635copy

The last two months have been a little crazy. Cole’s accident, a trip to London, a trip to Paris, Thanksgiving….

Q14A9639copyQ14A9642copyQ14A9660copyQ14A9662copy

Oh and a bunch of photoshoots in between.

Q14A9664copyQ14A9665copyQ14A9669copyQ14A9670copyQ14A9674copyQ14A9675copy

I am ready for things to calm down and bit. I seriously can’t believe it’s December.

Q14A9676copyQ14A9681copyQ14A9683copyQ14A9686copyQ14A9690copy

Cole’s face is healing up nicely but he still can’t get his braces fixed because he knocked a couple teeth loose and they won’t work on them for a while. At least 6 months. He got his cast shortened and then removed completely and is back on his bike ๐Ÿ™‚

Q14A9699copyQ14A9707copyQ14A9710copyQ14A9719copyQ14A9727copy

Dog picture overload but he is such a crack-up I just threw them all up!

Q14A9741copyQ14A9742copyQ14A9749copyQ14A9757copyQ14A9768copy

I feel like I just got used to writing 2015 and now it’s 30 days away from 2016. Just crazy. Slow down time!!

Q14A9773copy

Love that sweet face!

Q14A9781copy

Halloween Part Two

Oops I guess I forgot to put up the rest of the pics.

Q14A9461copy

This year was a little crazier than most

Q14A9462copy

Being gone the weekend before Halloween thru everything off for me.

Q14A9463copy

So everything was kinda crammed into one day.

Q14A9468copy

But that’s ok. We still had fun

Q14A9471copyQ14A9472copy

Coley man ๐Ÿ™‚

Q14A9474copy

Oh this dog…

Q14A9476copyQ14A9477copy

She wanted a puking pumpkin

Q14A9478copyQ14A9480copy

I tried to cook the seeds. It didn’t work

Q14A9485copy

They did a good job getting it done quick.

Q14A9487copyQ14A9488copyQ14A9495copyQ14A9499copy

I made him do it too

Q14A9504copyQ14A9506copy

The dogs kept eating the pumpkin guts

Q14A9507copyQ14A9514copyQ14A9522copyQ14A9529copy

We took breaks to play ball

Q14A9533copyQ14A9536copyQ14A9538copyQ14A9542copy

Some were a little lazy

Q14A9544copy

But he eventually came around

Q14A9554copyQ14A9557copyQ14A9564copyQ14A9565copy

All the pumpkins turned out good

Q14A9545copyQ14A9546copyQ14A9549copyQ14A9550copyQ14A9552copy

And that wraps up Halloween 2015!
