The Airport Hotel in Paris

Nice view for Dylan but not sure it was quite worth $360 for 14 hours.

And We're Off...

These are the sweet raspberry faces I am etching in my brain as we embark on our day and a half excursion.

Long Ago

It appears I have lost all the videos I have taken since August. As I was searching for them I came across this video and it just cracked me up. Don't get me wrong I love my kids now but I'd be happy with some more moments like this each day (Dylan not making a peep or movement and Ava sweet as can be)

Ava Last Day

So proud of the quilt she made for her teacher. I sewed it but Ava picked all the fabrics and laid the whole thing out. morocco_277_avalastday 1.jpg

School doesn't end until later in June but Ava's teacher was very sweet and did a little graduation today just for Ava.

Trip to Marrakesh with Grandma and Grandpa

Town along the way

The much anticipated carriage ride that both kids slept through in the 105 degree heat

I've never been inclined to walk around the medina before it opens, but with kids that wake up early and get restless in a hotel room it was the perfect time. I have to say this was the highlight of the trip for me. It was just so peaceful to be in the empty market with just a handful of people transporting their wares or starting to open up. Once the shops open you don't get to see all the interesting doors and carvings that are underneath all that stuff.
