  • What We Did This Week

    May 30, 2014

    In this week’s Annabelle weekly update I wrote quite a bit about what was going on with Annabelle and didn’t even get to what we’ve been up to this week. So, here’s what we did in Paris this week. Annabelle helped me around the apartment with laundry and recycling plastic bags.  And I already mentioned in our weekly Annabelle update last week that on Monday Annabelle and I went to Luxembourg gardens. It rained some this week but what’s nice about Paris rain is that it’ll rain for a bit, stop, get sunny and then later in the evening rain again. So, even with the rain Annabelle and I went for several walks, went to the park near our apartment one day and even went to the zoo on Sunday to meet up with a couple of mommies and their babes.


    The zoo was a lot of fun and so close to where we’re staying. The Ménagerie du Jardin des Plantes is a zoo in Paris that belongs to the botanical garden Jardin des Plantes (which is also awesome). It is the oldest civil zoological garden in the world. It no longer has any large animals like elephants, but a lot of small and medium sized mammals and a variety of birds and reptiles (including raccoons). The first picture below is Annabelle just as we were arriving to the gardens. She was finishing up her afternoon nap.


    And then of course, we just hung out too! Dusty discovered that Annabelle loves riding on Daddy’s shoulders! And really, just loves anything that involves being near her Daddy!
