Happy Thanksgiving!

Pictures.
Alex's school provided a Thanksgiving meal today, including turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, and corn on the cob! A good time was had by all, as you can see from the pictures.

Catching up from October....

Pictures up to November 17, 2009.

Pictures.
Pictures from October, and also some from my camera from Andrea's visit.
-Alex and I met JD at La Defense one day for lunch, for sandwiches from Paul and strawberry ice cream.
I also found a cute toy called "Paris in a bag" at a store called Muji.
-That weekend was warm and we went for a walk on an old railway bridge that has been converted into a green walkway.
-Then there was some relaxing time, which Lincoln enjoyed. By the way, the vet demanded I put Lincoln on a diet as he is overweight and risks "cardiac problems". No more bread and cheese for him.
-On the last day before Toussaint vacation was over, we met a few of Alex's friends from school at Jardin du Luxembourg for some fun.
-When Andrea came to visit, we went to a great restaurant called "Boeuf sur le Toit" that has great food and an Art Deco interior.

November in Paris

Pictures.

Andrea came to visit for a few days. We've been walking around in typical November weather in Paris - cool, damp, rainy. On Saturday we went to the Latin Quarter to wander down Rue Mouffetard and see the area we stayed in when Andrea was here last in 1998.

Today, Sunday, we walked around Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, Champs de Mars, the American Church, etc. Andrea wanted to make a special pilgrimage to 81 Rue de l'Universite (Rue de Loo) where Julia Child lived.

And of course there was food, cheese, bread, wine, naps (Alex), and Lincoln!
