Once again, I was having so much fun seeing old friends and meeting new friends that I totally forgot to take picures. I remembered after most of the delicious food was eaten and more than 20 people have left.
I think I will have to carry my camera in my hand at all times - although this could make drinking champagne and eating at the same time very difficult!
Got home in the wee hours after a wonderful evening hosted by Cynthia and Mark!
We headed out to Fountainebleu this morning. Here we are going out of Paris.
Trocadero.. Eiffel Tower...
The sparkling Seine River...
Fountainebleau has been a retreat for kings since 1137 - including Louis XIV and Napolean. We took the audio tour of the château.
I have serious "helmet hair" today.
The town of Fountainebleau...
We stopped in and had a quick bite at this cute little restaurant.
Actually, we also needed to use their electricity. Our tom-tom died on the way to Fountainebleau so we had to buy a charger and recharge it (to the right of Tom's head). Of course, we asked first before plugging in. We only take small and quiet roads and there was no way we could retrace our steps back to Paris. It took us about 1 1/2 hours each way
My snack - yummy!!
Here we are on our scooter! Actually, it reminds me more of a motorcyle. It has 125cc and can easily get up to 100km per hour.
We made it home with just 30 minutes to spare before we had to leave for a going away party.
Not only am I a bad blogger, but I am also not taking any photos of my adventures. Leesa, the party planner, organized another wonderful picnic. I only took 3 pictures!! Four more people arrived after these photos were taken. The question that I always have is... why, why, why does J not liking having her picture taken? She's beautiful, young, so very photogenic, and doesn't have a single wrinkle!!
I guess I was too busy eating and drinking to take a picture in the beginning. Here is our wonderful picnic basket with our baguette on top of it.
I can't believe that Bob is a senior this year! How is that possible?!?! Bob even let Tom drive him to school on the scooter. Actually, Bob got to sleep later since Tom drove him. School starts at 9am - when I was a senior in NJ, I had to be in school by 7:15am.
Bob is really happy with his schedule this year. He has a bunch of his friends in his classes and lunch. I think his senior class has about 80 students in it.
