    WOW!!
    Amazing!
    I love the Eiffel Tower one.
    I want to go there one of these days. It's on my bucket list to go to Paris.
    Sure looks like they had a wonderful time. A trip they'll never forget.

    I know, Shadow, me too! Rachel had the one that's in the back left--second one in. it had bananas, kiwi and strawberries under all the whipped cream. She thinks Justin had one with strawberries, chocolate and whipped cream. Yum!

    Oh!! I need to take a pic of the gifts them brought me! As soon as they stepped into our arms, Rachel gave me a bouquet of beautiful tulips--wooden ones, so they'll last forever. She gave me a spoon rest in blue and white with a windmill and Holland written on it. Justin brought me a t-shirt, but I haven't seen it yet. His fiancé' doesn't want to let him go. :wink:

    I'm sure fiance will let go in a couple days. She missed her man and is loving on him to catch up on what she missed. ;)

    Ah, so they made it home safe and sound, and now your worries are over, right? Good.

    Great pictures - I see the talent for photography runs in the family.

    And now... waffles!!!! OMG, you have wrecked my diet (not that I've been sticking to it). I have to go out for breakfast tomorrow and get some Belgian waffles!

    Thank you for sharing. Brought back wonderful memories. Did they get to Germany? If not, another trip.

    Here are two of my gifts!
    The bouquet that's forever!

    The vase was from my birthday bouquet last year.
    It fits perfectly!

    Justin bought a t-shirt for himself that had many copies of this statue in Brussels of a little boy peeing... his shirt has the boy peeing to several different emotions. It's so like Justin to wear that shirt. :roll: I am very curious to see what kind of shirt he picked for me. He's never picked an article of clothing for his mother before. Maybe it has a simple windmill.... :lol: I'll find out tomorrow. :-D

    Wow, those are great photos, and make me want to go back to Europe. I love it. If I didn't have too many furbabies, I would seriously consider emigrating to France or Italy. I've never been to Amsterdam, but I LOVE Paris, and especially the Eiffel Tower at night! Great pix, BB, and I love your bouquet!!
