We couldn’t be more excited.

Aaron: Michael, we’re having a girl!

Michael: Me and Roman are going to be parents

Lunch outside on this beautiful day!

P.s. GO CYCLONES!!

What a difference 10 lbs makes running behind this thing! Abe is a lightweight compared to Michael!!

I think the one thing the boys miss from London is the sand at the parks. An 8′ square is as good as it gets here. I’m not complaining though.

A month of public transportation will make any little kid happy to be traveling in a car seat in a car!

Already getting ready for baby sister or brother: sitting next to each other in the car and sleeping in the same bed.

The fun of unpacking begins.

We survived the 9 hour flight from London and are now waiting in Atlanta for our connection to Des Moines. In just a few short hours we’ll be home.

Well, no photos from our last night in London. Dinner was pizza delivered from Firezza. It wasn’t terrible but it was probably our worst meal here. Oh well. Aaron and I just shared our final Paul A. Young brownie so that made up for bad pizza. We’re nearly all packed up and will be climbing into a taxi with all of our stuff at 8:30 in the morning.

Dinner on our second-to-last night in London: MISO, a noodle bar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Later, Roman began his bath in the sink. He thought it was hilarious!

It was fun! Hope to see you again!

At the train station.

A stop at the French version of McDonalds (which was two storefronts down) or Burger King, for the boys before heading to the train station. If you think we were looking a bit exhausted you would be correct!!

We had to carry our luggage around w/ us our last morning so when Michael got tired of riding his scooter, he rode the suitcase.

We took a stroll down the Champs-Élysées after breakfast. This was in some electric car showroom. I can’t remember the name of it.

Our last morning in Paris.

We were not only tired but starving and the only thing that was open within a mile of our hotel was a sushi place. I was thrilled and since the boys love rice they were just as excited to have a bowl of plain old white rice! 🙂

After the Eiffel Tower tour and a second full day of sightseeing in Paris we were TIRED!! this was heading to the train. We have gotten pretty good at strolling up and down the escalator! 🙂

Michael has taken to a pirate face for photos instead of a smile. Whatever works!

Our tickets were for 7:30p so by that time it was pretty cold but the guys thought it was really cool to be up so high!

We could only get tickets to get as far as the second viewing level of the Eiffel Tower, not all the way to the top, but wow, still very amazing!!
