Catching up

Well, it seems I took an unexpected vacation. I knew I was going on vacation, but I thought I would blog while on vacation, but nothing about opening the computer seemed appealing to me.
Instead we did a few other things.

A certain little man learned how to ride a bike with no training wheels in just three tries.

We later took a family bike ride where I prayed for a house along the beach someday. I need a house on the water. Let's count this blog as my vision board.

Just as a side note, I would like to know why after so many years no one has invented a comfortable bike seat? My ass still hurts and it's Monday night.
I would also love one of these little guys to house a ton of beach and fishing gear for guests.

Perhaps if the big house in the video is out of the question, how about a cute little one like this?

Minus the lace curtains. Who buys lace curtains? If you have them take them down, quickly, they are not cute. However, if you have adorable blue shutters and a craftsman door, just know that I forgive the lace curtains, but I'm still not loving them.
Of course there were walks on the beach. Mostly to walk off the damage from the nightly meals. The region is known for salted caramels. I spent more at the store than I care to fess is up to. Also, I'm going to need a good dentist soon.

The fun doesn't stop there. As of Monday I will have an open American style kitchen that looks out into my living room with a real wood burning fireplace.
Photobucket
These two no longer will share a room. Yes that is a buzzlightyear helmet that he has worn all day. And no I don't buy that they will stay in their own rooms for one minute.
Photobucket
We are losing an amazing view, exceptional neighbors and most likely the coolest Parisian landlord, but now instead of saying, "It's the grey, ugly, modern building across from the restaurant", I get to say, "the cute little house behind the gate".
Photobucket
Cheers.

So many things. First, I just bought some lace curtains for the kitchen, just kidding. Second, we need lots of pictures of the new digs. Third, if you ride more often you build a callous so it doesn't hurt, just saying from personal experience. Love you and all the videos. Miss you tons!

Congrats on the house Peggy! So exciting! Hopefully the little Howard family can make it out to Paris sometime soon for a visit and see your new home! Thanks for this blog. It makes me feel like I'm experiencing France with you! :)

Carol, take them down quick! But I still love you;-)
Mom, you are too funny, that is one thing I will not miss about Mimi, however the port to wash down all the mystery meat will be missed.
Thanks Dana, I am really excited to have more space and we would love to have you!
