On a plane tomorrow!

We are heading back to the states for August! Luke, Theo, and I are visiting family and going to the BEACH. I am just a little excited. I'm not even concerned about the fact I will be flying solo with these balls of energy across the Atlantic. We have been in Paris for ten months now and although we are feeling settled, there's no place like home. We've got soaps and sweets and foie gras for our friends and family. Too bad the macaroons don't stay fresh long enough for the trip.

Da Park

Living in an apartment we really depend on going to parks for our outdoor time. Coming from rural Vermont this has been one of the biggest adjustments. Today we went to the park at the Champ de Mars. It is always fun to go see the Eiffel Tower and more fun to people watch! The playset is all in the shade which is nice on a sunny and warm day like today. Our local hang, Place des Etats-Unis is also a great park, although it is smaller and can be really crowded during the school year. Plus we go there all the time, variety is a beautiful thing!
