Paris, Belguim, and Holland were amazing!! They were even better than I imagained. What beautiful places! Kandas gave a wonderful summary on her blog of everything that we did, so there is really no need for me to repeat it (thanks Kabes). I will just mention a few things. It was so much fun for Matt and me to eat with people from Sister and Elder Birch's missions and see what an impact they had on the over there. You can tell they really changed lives and are really loved. It was fun to experience there culture by eating with them and being in their homes. We would have never had that experience if we just traveled there on our own.

The trip started off great! It was fun to see New York again, I have never been before this summer, and now I have been there 2 times in 2 weeks, I felt a little spoiled. First Class was amazing!! Really amazing, I have had in on domestic flights, but it was nothing like this. It was really fun to watch our friends reactions, when they kept feeding us and waiting on us like royalty. We had such a great time though out the entire trip. We ran the entire time, living on an average of four hours of sleep a night. It was great to see some many beautiful places and meet so many great people. The food was also amazing!! Thanks to the food, I do have a few new "loves" in my life. They include: Nutella, Paul (which I will name one of my children after, it was that good, jk), Kinder, Fries, oh the fries, Pizza, Baguettes, and so much more. I tried to make a list in order of my favorites and I could not even do it.

I am not going to write anymore. When I get home from vacations, I just love to look at the pictures, I think they tell the story. Just watch the slide show and you will see all of our adventures. I would like to thank our travel buddies for the most amazing trip. Kandas thanks for organizing everything, leading us around, and just being the fun ,cute girl you are. Birchy thanks for the best fries in the world and for some of the funniest moments on the trip. Ri thanks for falling behind the crowd with me, therefore leaving plenty of opportunity to discuss Paul and all of the other yummy foods. Matty thank for being the best Hubby I could ever ask for and treating far better than I deserve. Thank you for working so hard to provide these experiences for me, and thanks for loving to fly, so the experiences are a lot cheaper. I love you Matt and I love you travel buddies. I would like to end with one final word "Charlie". It is a good story ask any of us about it.

P.S. Soldes rocked!!

Washington D.C.

When we were in New York we realized that Washington D.C. is really close, and it is a place we both really wanted to visit. We were regretting not planning our trip better. We could have done both when we were back there. We came home for a few days and thought, why not? We are young, no kids, this is a great time to do spur of the moment things. We flew back out to D.C. for two days. It was incredible. The history there is so neat.

Matt's favorite place (of course) was the Smithsonian, Air & Space Museum.

New York City!!

Summer started and I decided that we needed to begin vacationing. I have never been to New York and I decided that was just not right! I talked to Matt and we decided to take a quick trip to New York. It was a lot fun!
Brooklyn Bridge

The only thing Matt wanted to do in New York was go to the top of the Empire State building. I could believe how high we were.

Lady Liberty has a twin!!!

Two Tiffany's in One City!!

The one I am pointing to is the Tiffany's from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Run, Matty Run!!

Party in Time Square!!
