Our trip to Europe

We had a very nice trip to Europe.
It was great to see so many Dejardin family members and friends gathered in memory of Chris' Dad. We had a very nice stay with Chris' Uncle Roger and Aunt Dede their hospitality was great and very much appreciated. The girls got to meet and spend time some cousins on this trip.
The visit to Paris was wonderful although the weather was very cold and windy!!! We saw the Eiffel tower ,Sacre Coeur, MontMartre, we took a sightseeing boat ride on the Seine River.
Holland was beautiful and it was so nice to see Tante Hil, Tante Marianne, Tante Jes and Oom Paul. We had a very nice visit with each of them and Tante Hil took the time out to spend each day with us which was so nice.
England was so much fun. The girls loved the fact that they had other kids to play with.
With Paul and Karen's four plus our two we had six children running around the house. They had a blast getting to know them!! We of course had to visit Stonehenge and we went for a walk in the New Forest and had a picnic and we spent a full day in London taking in all the must see sights. Our last night we hired two teenage babysitters to watch all the kids so the parents could go out for a wonderful QUIET relaxing dinner.

San Francisco

We went on our first big trip without the girls to San Francisco to visit Paul.
It was hard to leave the girls behind but we really did enjoy ourselves and had a great time.
It was great to see Paul and enjoyed meeting some of his friends.
We went to Alcatraz, we visited a few wineries in Napa and enjoyed a picnic lunch, we also did some shoping in their famous Chinatown area.
The weather was perfect sunny weather and we had a very nice visit with Paul.
All in all a Great trip!!!!
