DISCLAIMER: While we hope this blog will be a way for friends and family to follow our adventures in France, we also intend for it to be a sort of diary of our trip. That said, there will be some minutiae contained herein which you may find totally irrelevant and completely boring. Please feel free to skip and just look at the pretty pictures.

The cukes, as well as some green pepper, were featured in our salad this evening:

Opening the door...

And closing the door... Several dozen times. An Eliza specialty.


And other such folly...

Our new pet:

Eliza ended the day by passing out mid-Fancy Nancy. They must be some fancy dreams...
