Paris Part II

We had a cathedral and chapel filled day, exploring Notre Dame then heading over to Sainte-Chapelle. Because of its history, Notre Dame was pretty cool to step foot in and was something to check off of the list, but of the two, I thought Sainte-Chapelle was way more impressive. It was a small little chapel that was reached by climbing a narrow stone spiral staircase. It's one of the world's most extensive collections of stained glass and was definitely a sight to see.

Amsterdam Part III

This trip involved a lot of playground stops and Margot-friendly activities to keep her entertained most days. Matt and I actually enjoy doing those sorts of things anyways, so when we decided to check out ARTIS, Netherlands' oldest zoo, we were both really excited. The zoo also has an aquarium and planetarium, but we spent the entire day just getting through the zoo and aquarium—both of which were well worth the stay.

Amsterdam Part II

We went in search of Amsterdam's famous stroopwafel and found ourselves at the Albert Cuyp Marketwhere we ate chocolate covered waffles for breakfast and browsed through the many street vendors selling food, trinkets and clothing. We went early enough so that it wasn't too crowded and Margot was able to roam free and explore on her own, dancing in the middle of the market whenever we'd pass by vendors playing music.

Our Family Trip - Amsterdam Part I

Bare with me as I slowly publish posts about our family trip that happened almost 2 months ago. But here we are again—this time, Amsterdam! After a hectic day spent scrambling around London, scooting to and from the Canadian Embassy to get my hands on a temporary passport to cover my expiring one, and then running through a crowded airport to quickly catch our short, hour long flight, we made it to Amsterdam! Thank goodness for an easy going kid!

London Part IV

For the last couple of days of our trip, we came back to explore west London. Lucky for us, it's where London's famous Chocolate Show is held...and even luckier, on the weekend we were staying here. At this point, we'd already trekked through Amsterdam and Paris, so we thought it'd be a good idea to spend our relaxing Sunday getting Margot (and ourselves) hopped up on chocolate samples and treats, then simply stroll the surrounding neighborhoods.
