Spain and France, The Basque region

Image
Pictures from our week vacation in Spain and France, the Basque region, with a little bit of the Rioja region of Spain.  We had a great time being back in Europe.  The food was amazing (cheese, French bread, Rioja wine) and we saw some fantastic sights.

There were so many highlights it's hard to list them all.  Vincent loved sharing hotel beds with Alex.  Vincent loved to pee in the bidet in the Spanish hotels.  Alex loved counting the cows and sheep and horses.  Both boys became fans of "fizzy water".
