Parc de la Villette

Sarah choose to visit Parc de la Villette, a fun place we visited two years ago during the summer.  The girls had fond memories of a zip line and hamster wheels for kids.  We arrived to find the park undergoing a major renovation.  Construction fences surrounded the part of the park they enjoyed so much.  The Dragon part of the part was open and lessened the disappointment with the closed section.

While walking around the park we came upon a bicycle art.

Later in the afternoon, we visited the sister of Annesophie, one of our friends in Bloomington.  Caroline, her daughter Charlotte (age 7) and Gaspard (age 3) kindly hosted us for cupcakes and tea. Charlotte showed Sarah and Rachel her room and allowed us to pet her rabbit.  It was fun to visit to a residential neighborhood without tourists in sight. DSCN0558
