Brugge Belgium.......

Yesterday we visited Brugge, Belgium with some good friends from church...we had such a good time and the city is GORGEOUS! The architecture is simply stunning and it is breathtaking to see it in person!

This is a picture of one of the buildings near the center of town. It had several parts and each part was built with a different architectual theme.
One of the many canals that run through the city. This park was so pretty.

We went on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city...that was the highlight of the trip!

Saige had a front seat ride for the trip! She loved it.



I love this picture...the day was so bright and sunny!


Another gorgeous building.


Cutie Joel posing for the camera!




I just love seeing all of the amazing buildings...can you believe that they've been there for hundreds and hundreds of years? Too cool.
And now for Joel's favorite part of the trip....Belgium chocolate!! To use his favorite phrase..."there were more chocolate stores than you can shake a stick at" (or something like that, ha ha) I love his little southern sayings. I didn't try the wasabi chocolate...I was too chicken! But, he said they were AWESOME!

How about some chocolate teeth? Don't they look appetizing?





Halloween chocolate.



Beautiful!






The center of town...we had the best time. I'm so glad we went and experienced this great city.

That place looks amazing. Does Saige realize how lucky she is?? I had to laugh at her on the handsome cab though, 'cause it reminds me so much of that Seinfeld episode where Kramer fed the horse that huge can of beans!!! Also the chocolate makes my mouth water but I never thought I'd see the words "wasabi" and "chocolate" in the same sentence!

So I had to come and see your pictures. They turned out great! It was a beautiful day, I think that was the last of our warm weather. I am ready to plan our next adventure. Kendall loved having Saige there can not wait until we go again. Are you all up for any Christmas markets???
