Today was another nice day!
We had lunch at Philippe's mother's house ~ rabbit and potatoes, carrots and more dessert.
We are eating dessert with every lunch and dinner! Yikes!!! But SOOO good! =)
Next MC took us to where the twins ride horses once a week so Cade could ride a pony, but he didn't want to. So, we took a nice walk in the forest with the pony.
Afterwards, we went to ...
... exhibit ~ a world famous designer who had his beautiful costumes on display from the Paris Ballet and Opera.
Afterwards we had some crepes.
Now Philippe is cooking dinner ~ ravioli, duck, and assorted mushrooms.
We are having a really fun time and are being treated like royalty by Philippe's family.
We will stay here another day then Wednesday morning head out for the South of France for a week.
Wish you were here!!
