Mom and Randy in Madrid

After my mom and I spent an amazing weekend together in Italy, Randy came to meet us back in Madrid after working for several weeks in Greece for the Special Olympic World Games.  He was exhausted, as you can imagine, but we were so happy to have him join us to explore the beautiful city of Madrid – our home for the year!

Nothing makes me happier than to see my mamma happy…don’t she and Randy make great European travelers?!?!

Kyle and I took them on a walking tour through Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor with a top at one of our favorite markets for some paella, olives, wine, and of course, gelato.

The highlight of their visit was an outdoor concert with the inspiring group, “Playing for Change” – a collection of talented street performers from around the world who perform together with an incredible mix of cultures and styles.  Our favorite was the finale – “Stand by Me.”

The other highligh, coming in at a close second, was going to the Madrid Zoo.  We may have been sweating profusely in the heat, but it was definitely worth it to see the dolphins, meerkats and baby pandas!  Oh, and Randy enjoyed saying hello to his friend, Chip, as well 🙂

Thank you, thank you mom and Randy for coming to visit us in Madrid!  We’re looking forward to many more concerts, trips to the zoo and other adventures with you…even if they are a little closer to “home” next time!
