A few pictures from our Belfast and Paris trip! More to come soon...

We are back from Belfast and Paris! It was a wonderful trip and there is much to share however my time this week is limited as my parents are coming in on Thursday to watch Michaela as we head out for our date night to see Yanni in concert and then on Saturday morning watch the Ironman Texas which is coming here to The Woodlands, Tx. I am VERY excited about this as it truly is a dream of mine.

I have several videos and photos to post as well as some before and after shots of our 2006,2008 and now 2011 visits to Paris and the changes I have made between these trips. It is amazing to see the difference!!!

Here are a few photos for now........

I snuck over after I saw your comment on NATF's page about extra photos. :-)

I have the exact same picture of feeding the birds at the Louvre (well, it has my friend in it, and not you...but you get it).

What makes you return to Paris every few years? Do you speak the language?

I've never been to Ireland, but it's on my list (especially if it has good shopping).

How long were you in Birmingham? When I lived in England, it was the one palce that I coudln't get the swing of understanding what the people were saying. Did you have that problem?

What beautiful pictures! You guys are like the picture perfect family and look how light Kayla's hair is getting! I love the pic of you two at the bench, so adorable! I also love that Kayla was chompin' on a baguette like a little French girl. So cute!

That top pic of you in the jeans made me want to walk up behind you and smack that skinny butt! *wolf whistle!*

looks like you had a dream trip! Your work outs have really paid off -you took a rear view pic of yourself, and it turned out great! (I long for the day I can view a rear pic of me that I don't cringe! Yep! squats and lunges are my mantra!)
