New Patio part 1

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

While Darryl's dad and Aunt Betty were visiting, several of us were sitting out on the patio and one of the legs of Aunt Betty's chair broke through the wood. It then became apparent that we needed to replace the patio sooner rather than later. We replaced the wood patio that was there when we bought the house with a new stone.

Scotland part 1

Darryl was able to take a trip to Scotland with his dad and Aunt Betty at the end of April to the beginning of May. Here are some pictures taken at the only lake in Scotland. Every other "lake" in Scotland is actually a Loch, which were formed from glaciers years ago.

Paris part 1

Darryl was able to take a bus trip with his dad and Aunt Betty to Paris in April. Visiting Paris has long been a dream of Darryl's. Here are some pictures by the Louvre. While our visit to the Louvre was short, we did get to see two if it's more famous works, the Mona Lisa, and The Venus de Milo. The link that I've provided has a short history of the world's most famous musem in additon to a floor plan and further informaton on the exhibits. I'll be posting more from our trip later....
