A trip to Paris with two little girls is not complete without a visit to Angelina. After lunch we had their famous velvety, rich hot chocolate. Yum!!!!

Quintessential Paris

What does every little girl need when she visits Paris? A beret, of course. Here is Oliva sporting her snappy pink beret.

Barbe a Papa

My French is pretty basic-I can get around and order in restaurants (most of the time!). When we were at the Luxembourg Gardens I saw a sign for Barbe a Papa-I thought it must be some kind of snack for the fathers. No, no. It is cotton candy. The translation is "beard of the father." How cute! The girls loved Barbe a Papa and wanted it every time they were at Luxembourg Gardens. I have to say I love the sugary sweetness and that crunch when you take a bite. Unfortunately, the girls were not sharing. Probably best for my waistline!

A Room With a View

Our Paris apartment had a wonderful view of Notre Dame. The apartment could not have been set up more perfectly for children-it even came with an English version of Disney's Notre Dame which the girls watched every night.

Off to Paris

The girls declared that they loved London. I think their favorite thing was St. James Park and chasing the giant pelican. They also loved the food-we ate at Wagamama twice. K could not get enough of the dumplings! But after a week it was time to head to Paris. There was a tube strike going on the morning we left but we made it to the train station with no problem. We took Eurostar to Paris-the girls colored for a little bit and then fell asleep. When they woke up they were in Paris. I love the picture of K sleeping with her head in Oliva's lap. How cute!

Where in the World has K Been?????

If you guessed London you were right! And did you notice who else just happened to be there at the same time? That's right, Charlotte! We spent an afternoon with her and her family. We were traveling with our friends Catherine and Olivia.

Weekend in Palm Beach

A quick trip to Palm Beach last weekend. We went to Harrison's 8th grade graduation from Rosarian Academy. A Friday night spring football game. The highlight was taking Opie and K to the dog beach-I'm not sure who had more fun!
