Troy had meetings scheduled for the first 2 working days of the year, then epiphany is a holiday in Bavaria & the girls weren’t going back to school until the 7th, so we thought that we would all join him in Paris for a few days.  A great excuse to see friends & celebrate the new year in our favorite city.

Jan 2010 681 After arriving we immediately headed for the Jardin d’Acclimatation for some running around time (in the freezing cold) before enjoying a little room service.  (Troy travels a lot so he is used to it, but for me, room service is the ultimate splurge – and we brought out own wine!)  Anyway, back to the park…Jan 2010 697 The girls loved the hall of mirrors.Jan 2010 694 Jan 2010 704 Jan 2010 706Sophia was so excited to show Troy how she was able to ride the horses, among other rides, all by herself!Jan 2010 717

Jan 2010 712 Alexandra was ok at the beginning of the ride with Sophia, and then totally lost it.  The man working on the ride kept counting the laps down to her, in French, hoping to make her feel better.Jan 2010 732 Sophia paddled around in her princess canoe Jan 2010 742 and we all took our time with the percussion instrumentsJan 2010 748 Sophia spotted Guignol’s van, and we promised her a puppet show after church tomorrowJan 2010 764 Jan 2010 770 and the trampoline is always a hit, except when you are too little or too old to jump, and then it’s just time to go back to the hotel & get warm!! Jan 2010 775 Jan 2010 785 and the train ride back…Jan 2010 798
