|The boys enjoyed their first chocolate croissant|
|Even though we were in Paris, we ate far too many meals at McDonald's.|
There were actually two reasons: the boys are not too adventurous as far as food
and McDonald's was far more affordable than most dining options.
|Oakley studied Joan of Arc this year in school and was|
excited to find a statue of her inside Notre Dame
|As exciting as the sites in Paris were, the boys were thrilled to play in the|
public park. And there was a French girl very interested in Asher. She insisted
she was his girlfriend.
|Scott and I added our Love Lock with our names written on it to|
the bridge over the River Thames. The boys threw the key into the River for
us. Our love is eternal!
|We LOVED the crepes! Our favorites were the Nutella with strawberries|
or bananas. There was a crepe stand on every corner.

The Palace of Versailles is one of my favorite places to visit in Paris. Although the Palace itself is gaudy and too elaborate for my taste, I love the gardens and especially Marie Antoinette's Village.
After we got home, Asher was not ready to have the vacation over. He set up his own hotel, Ameristay Hotel and Spa, complete with key cards. At only $18 a night, I'm sure he will have booked hotel every night!
