a Sunday in photos

It's not possible to do it all, right? The day is long, but not long enough. And today is no exception. I must let go of something -- writing is the obvious choice. Can you make out our day with no explanatory subtitles? Or, let me set this limit -- no more than five words per picture? Let's try:

We're going out?


Paris with the family-1.jpg



Bicyclists. More than ever before.


Paris with the family-8.jpg



Brunch. Les Editeurs. Many friends.

Croque monsieur for Snowdrop.

Tired...

...Until you say: park's next!

High five: so many hands!

Jardin Luxembourg -- the pond. Happy!

Loving aunt and uncle.

Rain. Still, baguette in order.

Walk back along the Seine.

And here I'll break from my five word limit. Later, much later, we review this walk. Turns out we all hatched private plans as to how to rescue Snowdrop in case the stroller rolled into the river Seine, given the slippery surface of the cobblestones. A touching display of true love.


Nearly home.
Rain in abundance.

Quiet time at home.

Violet's with Snowdrop. Semilla dinner.


My girls picked this photo as the one that best illustrates my exuberance tonight. (We're doing a tasting menu, the food is excellent, the company -- outstanding!) I'll leave it as an ending to today's post.
