Aranjuez Revisited

Our friends will be moving soon (does this story sound familiar?) so we went to Aranjuez again for a "last hurrah" and some great photo ops.  I won't be sharing their photo shoot until after Christmas so they can surprise people with the cards.

First stop was coffee.  Oh sweet nectar of life.  The boys had a plate of chips to keep them busy while we slowly slipped our delicious brew.  They didn't last very long.

After that we walked around the city and the parks for a couple hours and the boys went completely nuts.  We'd all been to Aranjuez before, but only had time to see the huge garden.  Well this time we saw the palaces and fountains!  I'm glad they got to see it before they go back to the States.

Everyone got ridiculously hungry and, luckily for us, it was a Spanish holiday so the restaurants were still open after 4pm.  As we were eating our early dinner a thick fog rolled in around us.  It was like a snow day or something.

We were running and playing in the fog like little kids.  Jamie was so excited she fell.  I snapped pictures because... well, you can see why.  Everything was just so stinkin' cool.  It was such a great day! :)
