Easter in Paris

Well, we finally got to Pawis.
My pawents stayed at theiw favowite little hotel on the left bank.. a sentimental favowite fow them.
 Angel Nowa had stayed thewe wif them yeaws ago.
Flat Lacie and I opted fow mowe luxzoowious accomodations..we pwefew ouw bweakfast on a tewwace, hehehehe

I have made smileboxes of the twip, but hewe is an abbweviated vewsion in a few pics fow those of you who don't have an houw to look at all of Mommi's stoopid pictoowes

this was the view fwom Mommi and Daddi's woom..peawly Pawis skies and the back of a pwepawatowy school
You could see kids playing ball in the couwtyawd

it wained , then shined, Mommi didn't cawe..she was thwilled to be in Pawis

the pawfect thing to do on a blustewy day is to have a nice noowishing lunch in a Bwassewie ow Bistwo
Lacie and I shawed a Pot Oh! Foo..deeelicious

My Daddi looks gweat up against Pawisian backgwounds

in the evening we climbed up to Sacwe Coeuw fow befowe dinnew excewcise

(we awe tewwibly health concious as you know, hehehehe)

no dinnew is complete wifout a tiny bit of sweet..this time a bewwy gwatin

then a walk back down the hill to the Metwo stop and glowious views of the city by night

Lacie and I pwefew to take my Vespa which I had sent ovew fow just such an occasion

hewe is the elongated vewsion of day one in Pawis if you have time, thewe awe some cool pictoowes

the next day was Eastew Sunday.
 We decided to go to Mass at St Sulpice..it's the neighbowhood chuwch fow whewe Mommi and Daddi stayed

Mommi lit candles fow all hew fwiendses and theiw loved ones who awe in heaven and also fow all fuwwkids

aftew Mass  we went out to the Bwa duh Bool Onion..thewe is a little pawc inside of the big pawc..the little pawc is called Bagatelle Gawdens and that is whewe my Mommi's Mommi's  ashes awe scattewed

the sun came out just as we got thewe..this little chat oh is whewe my angel Gwamma lives. It's sowwounded by bootiful gawdens and the aiw smelled delicious wif spwing flowews. The shuttews wewe openend just as we got thewe..I think angel Gwamma was expecting us

back in Pawis, Lacie was delighted to see that she could get coke zewo..being awound Mumsie, she has gotten addicted to the vile dwink  and can't go wifout fow mowe than a few seconds

I was mowe delighted by the tawt Oh plums waiting in Mommi and Daddi's woom.  Of couwse, Lacie expected me to shawe.

ouw dinnew was spectacoolaw !  a gift fwom those two wheeley fwenchmen Inspecteuw Justin Hewkimew Clues? Oh! and inspecteuw Jacques E.MayGway and theiw family
pawfect Bwassewie food and atmosphewe neaw the Sow Bone

we walked home wif full tummies and big smile on ouw faces in the mild Pawis night and wewe tucked into fweshly iwoned fwagwant beds

Oh Asta...

Mum zeee has gained twenty pounds alone on all that candy you took pix of!!!! Oh dear...I started this comment dangling my preposition...I hope no one peaked...

Oh...where to start...those sheets were amazing...the thread count...the limited amount of time we spent in them visiting others to compare thread counts...

Arooooooooooo...what happens in Par eee...

Oh the archie tec ture...

And we didn't know Par eee had hills ...like da Burgh...well, sorta like the Burgh...actually the Burgh is nuthin' like Paris, but we like to pretend...

You got such great pix at night...Mumsie put her favorite...

Green Pic...on her desktop...she adores it...

I'll call ya in a little bit...Mumsie is clamering to brush us and take us for a walkie...who would wefuse le walkie...

BTW, I put down seventeen deposits on apts. in Pareee...

I think that's a reasonable number...

As for coke zero being a vile drink....

You obviously have no taste....

It's better in a wine glass...

Roll it on ze tongue...

And enjoy ze little bubbles as they pass through your esophogussie and make ya feel like you're gonn burst...



Suave and so fist e kated,


ScrapsofMe said...

Asta Banana! Do you think I would fit in your mom's lap? I am a pretty big girl and your mom is pretty teeny. Tell her not to wear black the next time I'm in town, because I'm gonna shed all over her.


Unknown said...

Aw...what a wonderful trip! And how clever of your humans to find a way to take you to Paris with them!! Hee! hee!

Bocci said...

Oh Asta, what great pictures and descriptions! There's nothing like French food (that's Parental Unit whispering in my ear, I've not had any :-) !

And did Parental Unit and I see correctly that all those beautiful paintings are your Mommi's artwork? Absolutely LOVED them!
You should brag more about your Mommi's talent!
Your buddy,
P.S. Will not get tired of pictures of Paris!

Golden Samantha said...

Speechless... in French or English. Spent at least 45 mins. watching every bit of your bootiful stories and pix of your Easter in Paris and am so jelly. I have got to write and ask a few ???. My mom's Paris past encourages her to find out some things. You certainly know the neighborhoods - and loved seeing both pix and movies. St. Germain de Pres, les Brasseries, the views, churches and Easter services, oh my goodness. So much to comment on - don't know where to begin or stop. Yummies foodables. THANK you for making such a beautiful post!
Big Hugs xoxoxoxoxo
