Spring Break

After back to back conferences, we are finally ready to relax and enjoy our Spring Break. A while back I posted a picture of an incomplete puzzle and indicated that when it was finished it would depict a place that we planned to visit during Spring Break. Unfortunately, our plans for our puzzle were never realized. We came home one day to discover that our dear Jack had tried to work on the puzzle, and, well, let's just say that cats are not very good at assembling puzzles.

Despite the unfortunate demise of this puzzle, our plans for the break have held firm! Tomorrow morning we will drive to NORMANDIE, where we plan to visit the American Cemetery, learn about the making of Cidre, and explore Le Mont Saint Michele--the subject of our puzzle. We will also see the world famous tapestry at Bayeux and tour the charming harbor town of Honfleur, which inspired the great impressionist painter, Monet.

Finally, Spring Break has arrived!


  1. Sounds like a great spring break!

  2. Love this! Enjoy your guys and the blessings of each day of your holiday. We love you 4

  3. Great choices, Jenn! Perhaps you have already been, but if not, you might enjoy stopping at Monet's home at Giverny Gardens. It's about 45 mintues outside of Paris on the way to Normandy. His famous pond and lily pads paintings were inspired there. LOVE that your doing this! xoxo

  4. Bayeux was the first place I ever went to in France - but I think I missed the tapestry. I was too busy shopping to replace all of my stolen luggage. I hope you guys have lots of fun.

  5. We just got back from there today and loved it! Saw both the Tapisserie de Bayeux and Le Mont-Saint-Michel, and several places in Normandy connected with D-day. If you have a chance to go to Sainte Mere Eglise, I highly recommend the Open Sky Museum-for 8 Euro you can rent a GPS that takes you around to 11 sites in your car-including Utah beach- takes about 3 hours-just go to the TI in town.
    Looking forward to hearing about your experience.
