Our Favorite Day in Spain

We have traveled a lot with our kids.  We have taken them to cities, museums, and very significant cultural sights.  Their favorite place so far was an afternoon visit to the lake in Navacerrada.  The monkey bars started our visit off.  

The path through the forest was our next step.

Garrett was protecting something here.

He was very intent on making sure it was okay.

See that tiny little lady bug?

Jon got to carry the stroller over the mud patch.

Did I mention we were celebrating 8 years with this sweet girl?

Ah, the lake.

Malachi was ready to be out of the stroller and exploring with the big kids. 

They had so much fun climbing and exploring.

I love that Ben has been posing for me lately.

I love this man and all of our adventures!

This little guy loves being outside.

He is growing up so fast and thinks he can do anything the big kids can.

It really was a very beautiful spot.

I love the next 3 pictures.  Addie had jumped out to the smaller rock and Ben really wanted to try as well.

I love his arms raised in victory.

Another jumping shot.  Can you believe no one fell in?

Throwing rocks in the water is a favorite past time here.

I posted this picture last week and it got a lot of attention.  

Garrett managed to carry that big rock.

Malachi got his own rock too.  Can you believe this guy is just 18 months old?  

Speaking of growing up fast, this is girl 8 years old now.  She is such a joyful girl and we so blessed to have her in our life.  Can you believe she is on her first over night field trip this week?  Living in Europe 

We went home and had a yummy cake to celebrate how much we love Addison.  She is a loving daughter, an amazing big sister, and a great friend.  

Celebrating Addie was a great way to finish off our last big trip in Europe. 

Don't worry, we still have a couple of adventures while we are in France.  Less than 7 weeks until the move happens!


  1. Happy Birthday, Addie! Have a place picked out in houston yet? The Woodlands area? Hope to catch up when you settle in!

    1. Thank you, she had a great day. We are looking at Tomball/Magnolia. We are looking forward to catching up with you too!
