McP girls take on Europe

Earlier this year we realized that Jon would be traveling a lot this summer and I got the itch to travel so we talked about me going and visiting family.  We are lucky enough to have family all over the world and I thought why not take advantage of the passports we have and visit those in Europe.  After a little talking and convincing Jon said go for it if you think you can handle the girls - why not!  So I called up my brother and asked if we could crash with them for a few weeks and use them as a home base since Jon has a sister here and we know lots of friends.  With all the big decisions made I booked tickets for Brussels which is actually cheaper than going back to America and am spending the summer traveling with the girls.  We landed and spent one day with my brothers family and then got on a train and went to visit friends in Germany for a week.  Oh and we convinced some other friends to come here since this is a mid point between America and Japan!!!!  We had a week reunion of laughing, playing and staying up super late just to chat.  Yesterday we got back on the train and are back with my brother and his family and today we start our adventures in Brussels.
