Trinkets, Treasures, and Tales

Last Sunday, we took the gang to Belgium.  We were planning on going to a Memorial Day Ceremony at an American Cemetery near the Netherlands, but we got wonderfully sidetracked.  We went with the B Family and we had a great time in Tongeren at the AMAZING antique/flea market.  I don’t think I’ve ever been to a market as big as this.  It went on for streets and streets, in parking garages and in community centers.  Douglas and I have vowed to go back again.

After the market we headed to Eben Emael Fortress.  Mr. B told us all about the Fortress and the amazing WWII history that it contained.  Unfortunately, it was closed to go inside, but we climbed all over the top of it.  The boys had a great time and the weather was fantastic.  Here are some pics of the market and the fortress.  Thanks B Family!!
