estonia was our third and final baltic state to visit. we spent all our time in estonia in the capital city of tallinn, which is totally delightful. it was more crowded in tallinn than riga or vilnius (it’s a cruise ship port…!) but the old town just oozes with charm. we had a fun day exploring before we headed back to london.

^^ we had to snap some photos with this wall at a viewpoint. one day we’ll look back at these good old days of the craziness of traveling with two small kids and think … ahh, the times we had! ^^

right by this (fairytale-looking!) tower gate into the old town there’s a spectacular flower market – stand after stand stuffed with gorgeous blooms.

after our morning explorations, ian stayed with gabriel at our airbnb for a nap (usually we have our kids nap on the go when we are traveling, but every once in a while it’s nice to get them rest in a bed if we can!). so i got to spend a few hours in tallinn on a little mommy date with moses. he had been really in to taking photos, and so i let him snap one of me on my phone in front of the door of our airbnb. i love seeing things from his perspective in the pictures he snaps! check out the camera roll … he certainly wasn’t settling for just one photo of this, we needed options! πŸ˜‰

moses also loves souvenir shops. and helping ian and i pick out magnets (we are pretty into finding the perfect magnet in each place we visit). while mo and i were out and about together, we sent some pictures of magnets to ian as we tried to decide which one to buy!

^^ we ate at this medieval themed place that’s on the right side of the street in this photo. our waitress was all dressed up and called us “lord” and “lady.” haha, it was kind of silly but kind of fun. ^^

^^ the next morning we got to play a little in the magical little back garden of the building that our airbnb was in. ^^

and then we were headed home! lithuania, latvia, estonia – check! πŸ™‚
