My wife and I have been married for ten years as of April 17, 2016. We both had some vacation time to use so we took a trip to Spain. Mr. Dude is too little to be left at home with a sitter for a week while Mom and Dad travel the globe so he came with us to Madrid.

We flew standby from Chicago to Newark and then Newark to Madrid. Mr. Dude was a real trooper. It was his third time to Europe (previously visited London and The Netherlands.) We did a lot of public transit, food sampling, photos and general family time. Enjoy or skip the photo overload below:

Spanish rain.

It rained the day we visited the Royal Palace.

Mr. Dude loved dancing in Newark airport.

He was over it by the time we got back to Chicago, but I don’t blame him. I basically was too.
