Russ and I were in our ward production of Woman at the Well. Russ was reluctant to get involved in the first place, and then turned out to be a star. He had five costume changes and played all sorts of parts, including Lazarus, a narrator, a member of the heavenly host, and a Nephite.
We had a lot of fun. It was a very spiritual experience to sing about our Savior and His life. We also loved getting to know our fellow ward members better.
After Geneva, we spent a full week in Paris. We slept on Brian and Mary-Jane's floor in a crowded pups' nest.
First we ran Katie around the city to all the major monuments. We walked everywhere - I had a pedometer with me and we clocked 78 miles on this trip. Katie wasn't used to all the walking and she got a bunch of blisters - the bottoms of her feet looked like she cooked them in a waffle iron. Here are the sites we visited:
La Tour Eiffel
Place de la Concorde
L'Arc de Triomphe
L'Hotel des Invalides
Le Musée du Louvre
Les Jardins de Luxembourg
Then we spent a day at Versailles.
Racing around and seeing all the sites took about four days, and we still had three more to engage in all sorts of merriment, relaxation and tomfoolery, such as...
What a delightful trip. We had the best time. Thanks again Brian and Mary-Jane for having us.
