Trip to the Big City!

We declared yesterday a Sabbath! It was the first day we decided that we would rest, focus just on having fun as a family and not worry about getting any "thing" done. We decided a trip to Old Madrid would be just what we needed...
The heart of Madrid is only 6 miles from where we are living in Pozuelo but we spent over 2 hours in the car there and back. I don't think I will try to drive in town on a weekday again! It will be the train for us from now on! All that said, we had a wonderful time exploring, resting, and having fun as a family.

Two hours to go six miles?!! Gotta love cities. I don't remember it being that difficult for us when we went with Scott. Maybe we were coming from a different direction at a different time of day. It looks like it was a beautiful day. I hope it was a refreshing day. Great pictures!
