We Love Paris in the Winter

We visited the Palace of Versailles while we were in Paris this past week. There's no doubt that the hall of mirrors is magnificent, and Marie Antoinette's estate is beautiful, but the real action was outside the palace. Sure, in the spring the grounds would be stunning -- immaculate gardens with flowers in bloom, fountains flowing and and statues not covered in tarps. But then, we wouldn't have been able to do this. The real action at Versailles was outside on the icy slope.

What a Hoot. I knowVersaiiles is beautiful but never thought of sliding down that very manicured hill. Seeing it in the spring , so stunning and formal, who would have thought. I might have known that my family would make it a kickin place to be. Man how fun can you get!
You had a hell of a lot more fun than I did when I visited.
Keep on sliding, and skating, and having the time of your lives!!!!!!!!!

Love all of
