Прекрасно провели вчера вечер на семейном пикнике The сад в ресторане @chaletroyalclub в честь дня рождения ресторана Chalet Royal Club
Это зелёный оазис с фонтанами и вкусной едой на свежем воздухе, прямо около усадьбы Архангельское 😍 и есть детская площадка🎠
Вчера была живая музыка и аниматор для детей 🙌🏻 мы расслаблялись под самый летний испанский напиток Сангрия, пока детей развлекал клоун 🤪
Самое интересное, что мы уж 5 лет живём по соседству, а ни разу тут не были 🙄
Кто соберётся погулять по усадьбе, смело заезжайте на обед 😌
А сегодня мы в очередном суперском месте, с бассейном 😉 и яхтами 😍 рядом с Шереметьево, над головой взлетают ✈️ и рядом плавают 🛥🛳⛴
Заходите в сторис 🤩
Day 2 Post 4
Next up was Palantine Hill and the Roman Forums. Piles and piles of really old rocks. As our guide explained, this was a good time for a really good imagination. Ha! It was beautiful to imagine the marble, the colonnades, the fountains, ponds, lawns, porticos, and basilicas. I’m sure it was beautiful once upon a time.
While I nursed the baby and my mom tracked down Julius Caesar’s funeral altar, the kids played on the broken columns and rock piles behind me. This of course ended with them getting yelled at in Italian for their inability to distinguish between ancient marble and ancient gravel. Oops. Several apologies later, we backed our way out of the area and wrapped up our visit.
Up the hill into the Monti neighborhood, a dozen postcards and one Colosseum tchotchke later, we found our way to our most authentic Italian meal to date. We ordered our food and the server told is no, that we really wanted these other much better dishes instead. He was right and everyone had their bellies filled with yummy surprises. And Zipporah learned that she loves caprese salad and meatball entrees. Both kids tried and disliked the eggplant-drowned-in-olive-oil gift of the house. Mom and I thought it was amazing. Apparently, massive amounts of olive oil is all that our cooking has lacked thus far. Because nothing else is needed when cooking almost anything!
I wanted to take in the Trevi Fountain tonight but we have to be up very early in the morning so we elected to postpone the fountain till tomorrow night. Stay tuned, many famous sites are planned for tomorrow!
Once we got back to our flat in Trastavere, I threw open the windows, put the big kids to bed, and left to nurse Gavin down. I heard a ruckus and mom when into the kids room to see what was going on. She found Zippy leaning out the window yelling loudly at our Italian neighbors to shut up because they were too loud and she couldn’t sleep! Ha!
All is now quiet.

Next we walked up to the Colosseum and found the meeting point for our Walks of Italy tour with the AMAZING Vanessa. We enjoyed a leisurely meal at the nearby cafe and then met up for Zeke’s much anticipated tour. I didn’t realized the extent to which he had been saving up questions for our guide and absorbing info ahead of time. He continually guessed the right answer to all the guides questions and then interrupted her talk with intelligent, if poorly timed, questions. I reigned him in but he spent the whole 3.5 hours by the guide’s side and asked her questions every chance he got. It was amazing to see how fascinated he was by the ancient stories he’d heard and how serious he was to have her corroborate or debunk the legends he’d picked up.
Day 3 Post 1
We set our alarms today so that we could be 45 minutes down the road to the Priscilla Catacombs by 9:00am. We made it! And ate breakfast on pastries while we waited for the tour to start.
The catacombs were amazing. 40k+ burial sites, many still sealed, and many with original plaques and markings. Dating from the 1st century AD, the art that we saw represents some of the earliest Christian art in existence. According to our tour guide (which I feel like always needs to be researched), we saw the oldest known Madonna and Child, the oldest known depiction of the three wise men, and many other frescoes such as Jonah, men and women at a table serving each other communion, the Good Shepherd, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace, phoenix, peacock, chi, ankh, alpha/omega, and much more. I loved the friey phoenix representing resurrection life but I think the frescoe that impressed me the most was the picture of an angel visiting Mary and explaining how the things that had happened were a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. The thing that impressed me was the use of the Old Testament to interpret the New depicted in art sometime before Constantine legalized Christianity.
TBH I was down to hike the Great Wall, but not particularly keen. I assumed it wouldn’t live up to the hype. That it would be crowded, Disneyland-esque, and mildly disappointing. I was SO WRONG. With just over 13,000 miles of wall it is pretty easy to explore almost deserted sections and it is one of the the most awe-inspiring things I have ever seen. I spent our 4 mile hike marveling at the beauty of this wall snaking over the ridge of the mountains as far as I could see in either direction.
Thankfully the alleyways in Osaka 🗾 aren't creepy, dark or damp. We enjoyed wandering around busy Dōtonbori, including the alleys like this one, which were clean, well lit and a bit quieter.
When traveling, make sure to turn off from the most popular streets, usually you can find a hidden gem or two ✨.
We love trying new foods, but we also like eating what we love while on travel. We found this quaint Thai restaurant two blocks away from our hotel and it was worth waiting until 7pm for dinner! We walked by a couple of other asian restaurants and this place offered a great price point for authentic thai food. The spring rolls tasted just like my mother-in-law’s! Baby Chase gobbled it up!
Pic: this was the appetizer for two. Buuurp! 🤤🐽
10pm sunset in Paris
For the past few nights the sunset was well past 10pm, but it’s always a gorgeous one! Oh but this has meant our dinner and bedtimes have been later and later. lol. 😂 #vacationmode#summernights#cityscape#paris
We hopped across the back fence of the farm to stay a few nights at Marks childhood friends place, and also have a look around his HUGE dairy farm 🐄 🐄 🐄 Lots more pics & videos on our stories atm including some baby 🐮 and .. Poppie drinking from the vat 😱 (the first dairy she’s ever had 😂). Thank you so much for having us guys 😘 😘 😘 //

Well, the plane gods did not allow @libertadito Hux and I to get to CO today. We are in Dallas for the night and hope to make a flight in the morning. We got to enjoy quality time together and make an adventure out of flying around today. I'm hopeful for tomorrow's journey to be full of ease so I can see my mom who has been sick. I'm thankful that Lib has been great company and that we've just been having fun together ❤️ #adventuresinflyingstandby#standby#makethebestofit#theresalwaystomorrow#travelwithbaby#Huxlife
Before I knew you, I met you, and before I met you I knew you. In the third trimester of my pregnancies I take a spirit journey to meet with my unborn children, learn who they are, when they might be with me, let them know a big journey is ahead and everything will be alright, and get to know what their spirit animal may be. When awaiting baby Juna my spirit traveled to one of Earths vibrant geothermal spots which became the portal to her spiritual side. Once I submerged my own spirit in one I swam through the water that awaited me on the other side. I walked onto a sandy beach where Juna awaited me accompanied by a beautiful horse that never left her side. Sweet Juna, It’s only befitting that your first overseas trip is a land filled with geothermal activity and beautiful horses.
Oh Hi .. sorry for my radio silence! Coming back to real life in London has been like a smack in the face. Literally the minute we stepped off the plane, our hotel cancelled. We couldn’t move straight home as our tenants exit date didn’t match up exactly. When we finally did get in to our own house, it wasn’t exactly how we would have wanted. We’ve spent the last three days cleaning and sorting .. Oh and I’ve done my first week back at work in amongst all of the chaos. I sobbed like a little child all the way to work on my first day, not wanting to leave Quinn!.. it’s been such a tough week but it’s finally coming together. We have a big empty house with nothing in it. Just unpacked our one suitcase. We’ve realised how little we need.. Before we left we had accumulated a house full of stuff that’s been in storage. I have no idea what’s in it so it can’t be that important. #experiencesnotthings is what it’s all about in this family. This was our very last stop in the Ring of Kerry, Southern Ireland .... Is it ridiculous that I can not stop thinking about our next adventure? I’ve literally just unpacked 🙈

Before we left, my mum bought Henry a waterproof camera for the trip. He’s had so much fun directing us in different poses and taking pictures of nature, but I’m guessing when we finally upload the pics onto our computer they will be mostly of his own eye. 🤷🏼♀️. Do you give your kids camera privileges on holiday, or gift them their own like this? Such a sweet idea (and less breakable than handing over the iPhone). Thanks mama! (P.s. Tom is fine...just sleeping.)
If you’ve been following along with my instagram stories then you know Ella and I are in Charleston, SC this weekend! Charleston has always been a favorite of mine so I was super excited to take Ella! We had so much fun exploring Rainbow Row this morning! Rainbow Row is the cutest little street of pastel homes! I seriously wish I lived here. 🌈
