Day 5 ~ Paris

Monday found us on the road to an inpromptu visit to the town we lived in from 97-99.
This is our sweet little home on Grove Blvd - the first home we owned.We also went to the park where the children loved to play.

We always called it 'the Eiffel Tower park', I don't remember its proper name.

Bye bye Paris!

I'm afraid I wasn't a very faithful blogger on our trip. Sorry. Our connection was blotchy at times and the battery didn't have a long life.

So we are home, safe and sound. I'll be sharing pics soon. Molly will be too, on the children's blog,
