This past Sunday was our first big market day since we've been away. Turkey brochettes (foreground) with salt, cracked pepper, oregano and lemon, a Greek salad with fresh tomatoes ("coeur de pigeon"), mini cucumbers and feta cheese, fresh figs, a baguette and some cheese (tomme de savoie aux herbes, an aged Saint FĂ©licient, and a fresh, moist chevre rounded out the best lunch we've had in a while.

More pictures of Vincent, and our weekend.  We walked around Paris which is great in August - deserted, but restaurants and shops are open.

We got out of Dodge just in time to miss the earthquake and Hurricane!  We arrived back in France on Monday and are adjusted to the time difference.  Lincoln missed us, and passed the time by sleeping in everyplace he could think of in the apartment, including Vincent's bed.

Wednesday was our last day at the beach, and the nicest weather!  It was hot and sunny so the kids had one more day at the beach and the pool.

Another fun day at the beach.  The kids had a great time digging holes and playing ball.  We hit the boardwalk at night for some rides and games and frozen custard.

Beach!

We are at Rehoboth Beach, DE for a few days staying at the Horn Harrop house with Toots, Poppie, Ilana, Craig, Brian, and Lindsey.  Alicia also came down for a day.  The weather cleared on Monday and there was some good beach time.  Vincent is enjoying the chill atmosphere of the beach.

Friday
Met Z and GG on their boat at the Washington Marina where they had just docked.  Shana joined us after work for drinks, then dinner at Cantina Marina.  Alex enjoyed his orange soda and olive "martini".  Columbus and Bella the kitties were social as usual.
Saturday
We stayed at the Washington Hilton to have easy access to DC.  Met Carrie, Spencer, Barb and Aunt Flo for coffee 3 blocks from the hotel where they had a salon appointment with Jamie.  Took Alex to the Air and Space Museum where he saw the IMAX movie with the Space Shuttle.  Then we met Z, GG, Shana, Rachel and Jon (who flew in from Austin for the weekend) at Founding Farmers for a great meal.  Then we walked(!) all the way past the White House to the Capital to the US Botanical Garden.  Then it was time to head to the hotel, back out for a Greek dinner, and back to the hotel to sleep.
Sunday
Went to Lucky Bar to watch Manchester United vs City, then down to Barb's for the Kurtz Ju…

We finally made it around the Beltway to spend the day with Carrie and the kids.  We had a great time at Chick-fil-a and the pool.  Vincent enjoyed meeting the kids, and Natalie loved holding Vincent.
