Our trip to Belgium!

So we left Amsterdam and headed to Belgium. We were so excited to see the next country and yet sad to be leaving Amsterdam and all it's beauty and fun.  We actually stayed in a small town just outside Brussels called Mechelen. I highly reccomend this little gem of a town for anyone going to Belgium and wanting to see more then just big city or those who really like small town feel and gorgeous architecture to go with it.

 Yupp again with the signs!!  It was only a short 1 1/2 hour drive from Amsterdam to Mechelen.
 Such a gorgeous town.
 I love it when things work out and you end up finding hidden gems you never would have found had you not chosen the out of the way hotel. Gorgeous cathedral!

 This was a garden on the inside of an old building..beautiful!

It was a beautiful place to spend the day and we even were able to get some fine Belgian chocolates while we were walking around..yummmm!!!

 Gorgeous Brussels!!!

 The Grand Place.

 Of course we had time to stop at a quaint little cafe and have some warm yummy Belgium waffles. Here is my waffle with strawberries and chocolate right next to my latte machiato!
 Thought maybe you would want to see a close up...can you see the cocoa powder on top?!?! OMG it was sooooooo good!! Only problem is now that no other waffle or chocolate will ever compare...sighhhhhh!!!

 The Atomium. A fabulous place to take kids after a full day of sightseeing. You all know how we need to keep the kids happy or else!!
A look over mini Europe. Of course they were closed while we were there....mehhh that's ok that just means we can make a repeat trip to do that too!!

So I hope you enjoyed our little weekend trip and hopefully if any of you are planning a trip to either of these countries you will feel you know a little more then you did before.
Have a fabulous day!!
