Mom - do you see the "Bobby" in the background? Did you know Bobby was a Belgian toy?! And Smurfs, too?! Who knew?
250 Belgian Beers sold here... I believe the "Alleluia Chorus" is playing in my hubby's head...
My birthday lunch. Can life get any better?
Do I look as mischievious and spoiled as I felt?
I loved all the carvings and sculptures on the buildings... even the creepy gargoyles!
First flower vendors I've seen this year! And look what comes next... We drive right by the Godiva Factory on the way out of the city. Why didn't we get a tour there?!
Swans making a nest by Lover's Lake. And below is us entering the Beguinnage (the convent). No pictures inside the walls... But a beautiful place - all the buildings were white and green, simple and perfect. The courtyard was a green grass lawn with shade trees and daffodils in bloom. We weren't aloud to talk - so it was silent. I could sit all afternoon in there... So peaceful.
More views of the buildings and churches on our walking tour...
"Cambrinus" - a pub with 450 Belgian beers to try! Uff da!
The Beer Bible. All 450 beers - names, alcohol content, their origin... Too much to take in all at once...
My after-dinner coffee, complete with sugar cubes, cream, a cookie, and a Belgian chocolate egg. Delish!
One advantage of getting lost - seeing beautiful things we didn't see during our daytime tour...
Things I am thankful for today:
7. Belgian lace - beautiful.
9. A group of 46 people celebrating "the youngin's" birthday. Too funny.
11. Being asked if we're on our honeymoon. I like that.
