So, who all went on this wild European adventure, Arthur, I hear you all wondering…

Well, let me tell you. My wife went…

a 1 a 2

There we are outside Buckingham Palace, right after seeing the Queen… and the rest of the Royal Family… celebrating the Queens birthday. I think my wife’s uncanny resemblance to the Queen accounts for the fact that we were allowed to get so close to her… (Dear English relatives that we saw on our trip, I meant no disrespect by this Photoshopped picture, but my wife does not like to be on the blog, and she won’t let me post pictures of the kids anymore either, so I try to cover her up in interesting ways when a picture just needs to be shown)…

My mom went… even though she is 91…

There we are walking but the Seine river in Paris. When the Grandkids turn 16, my mom takes them to Europe… wherever they want to go, within a reasonable time frame and budget… so, of course she was there. She likes to instill a love of art and culture and travel in kids… like she did with me and my brothers.

And Mollie, who is now 16, was there also… (Technically, my wife was the official parental guest. I just went along to be in charge of all the luggage and provide security for night walks around the cities we visited)…

There are Mollie and I on the London Eye, just as we began our rotation into the sky. I know I am not supposed to show the kids, but I figured a shot from the back would be okay. I was lucky enough to go on the same ride with my other daughter, Jessica, ten years earlier. You would know that if you had read my blog from the beginning the way it was designed to be read… HA!!! And stop looking at my sexy legs, you cheeky monkey!!!

  1. Wow, your mama looks amazing! 91? She is in fantastic shape. My father in law is 91 and is not moving very well. Good for her that she took her grandchildren on trips, what great memories to make with the kids.

  2. ART!!!!!! Goodness! You are amusing! Would have been great to have shopped that first pix well.

    Hope you had fun?

    Please do, for the sakes of we who wish could travel round often but don’t.

    So cool that your Mum is still spry enough to travel that far. Molly must have been pleased. Great photo of your Mum.

    My nan gave me £10 when I turned £16, just saying 😀

    This is amazing though, I’m spoiled having Europe and so many options within easy reach. Moving to Vancouver is still on the cards after all this time, but if I ever do go, I know I would miss being able to immerse in another country so readily.

    Shorts & a jacket?

  9. If you are married to the Queen, that makes you the Duke of Edinburgh. If that’s the case, why do you say the most embarrassing things all the time?

    I turned 16 once. I didn’t get trip to England from your mother…
    Have said that I did take my own trip to England in my early 20’s but still that wasn’t from your mother…
