We were able to combine the Mother/Daughter weekend with a reunion of some of our dear A-100 friends who were running the Paris Marathon. This was the perfect combination. Princess was able to have some kid time and not be all adult-like the entire time. I got to have some adult-time and not be all Mothery all the time.
Having studied Napoleon, we also had to see his tomb. As you would expect from such a small man - a HUGE tomb.

As you would expect, we ate like champs during this vacation. I swear I needed a second seat on the way home, but it would not have been a successful trip otherwise. Thankfully, Princess is not a picky eater. Her nickname is the Seagull if that gives you any indication of just how unpicky she is. We ate copious amounts of cheese, pork (for our Saudi posted friends), escargot, pasta, and steak. And you cannot go to Paris and not have croissants, chocolate and, of course, crepes! And oh, the Crème Brûlée. The best meal of the trip (and there were a LOT of good meals on this trip) was our last night. We found this cozy restaurant (Chez Plumeau) tucked away on Montmartre and we were set. The food was pure perfection, the service sublime. All in all, it was the best way to end the trip.
