Laissez les bons temps rouler!

We had an unexpected trip to Paris in July... Ryan had to go for business, so I tagged along. We had an awesome time. Paris was so beautiful and romantic and the food was amazing! We got to tour some of the sites together during the weekends and had the evenings together for our lavish 3-hour dining experiences. During the week, I explored the city with Ryan's coworkers wife... I have never walked so much in my life... but it was a good opportunity to burn off all the extra calories. We went to Chateau de Versailles, Musee de Orsay, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, and of course the Eiffel Tower. We saw all of the Cathedrals, including some famous De Vinci Code locations.

My favorite part was visiting Marie Antoinette's Estate... it was pretty amazing how elaborate she made everything. We had a blast, but were ready to return to Tatum and Davis after 9 days. Who, by the way, were completely content being spoiled by both sets of grandparents.

Day Trip to Oceanside

We went to Oceanside beach with our good friends the Cooks and the McDowells. It was a little crazy without the husbands, but we had a fun day!

We got together to play on the huge Costco blow-up slide. The kids had so much fun! We have made some great friends from the ward.
