Flowers, flowers, flowers! The Flower Carpet is one of the famous events Brussels is known for – a colorful design of flowers that covers the square of the beautiful Grand Place. It only happens once every two years and lasts for just a few days – so this was our chance to see it. According to the history of the Flower Carpet, it began in 1971 to promote the creator’s favorite begonias. As you can see from the pictures, the kids were impressed! (Morgan later commented – too bad they didn’t have a carousel.) After admiring the flowers, we stopped at our favorite outdoor seafood restaurant for lunch. Morgan loved the “circle chicken” (a.k.a. calamari).
