The kids had been asking us to take them to Europe for a long time, and we finally planned a trip to England where I lived for a total of five and a half years (three as a child, and the rest as a graduate student).
We left last Friday night and came back this Friday night. It was a short trip, but I'm really glad we did this. The kids are growing up fast. I didn't want to realize a few years from now that we'd missed the opportunity to travel as a family.
Here are some photos from the trip.
