Disneyland Paris

We all went to Disneyland Paris with grandma bug for three days this past week. The girls had a good time, although Lauren was scared of all of the characters whenever they got close to her. Ericka enjoyed dressing up like a princess and getting all of the characters and princesses autographs.
Lauren's favorite ride was "It's a small world" and Ericka's favorite ride was "Buzz lightyear laser blast". Grandma bug's favorite was the carrousel. Thankfully we had good weather and the crowds weren't too terrible. We just had two very tired girls by the time we went home.

Castles of Luxembourg

Mark's mom (Grandma Bug) was here visiting us this past week. We took her to many sights around Luxembourg and to see two of the castles of Luxembourg. The first picture is of Vianden Castle, which is the largest castle in Luxembourg. It was constructed between the 11th and 14th centuries.

The 2nd picture is of the grand ducal palace in Luxembourg city. This was the residence of the royal family from 1895 until the 1950's. The royal family now lives outside the city of Luxembourg and this palace now houses many government offices.

The third picture is of Ericka and grandma bug at one of the parks in Luxembourg city.
