Grandpa & Baba are here!

My parents are here visiting us! They arrived on Friday at the same time as some boy band called 5 seconds of summer, so they were greeted by screaming girls & paparazzi! Quite the welcome to Madrid!

Saturday we headed off to do some sightseeing! The first stop was Manzanares, which has a beautiful castle & a great view!

Such an amazing looking castle!

The view of the town from the castle was nice too!

Next on the agenda was a picnic, however due to the rain, we had to find an inside location for our picnic! We found a great little spot inside the convent at Valley of the Fallen.

The weather did clear up so we could enjoy our time at Valley of the Fallen

We also stopped at “Philip’s Seat”, where you get a great view of …

El Escorial & the surrounding countryside!

My parents toured El Escorial while Micah & I took our kids to a park. We ended our day of sightseeing with dinner at Pollo de Alcala! So delicious!!
