I’d love to find zip lines or some other cool park type place for my kids to enjoy. I know in Europe the playgrounds are as constrained by law-suite fear like here in the US. Have you found any cool playgrounds in France? I know my friend who lived in Amsterdam found several seemingly unsafe playgrounds. I can’t wait to find some Down Under.

Better than Disneyland or seeing bears in Yellowstone.

I was just wondering, do your children speak french to each other at all, or is it pretty much english only at home? My kids pretend to speak spanish to each other all day long, I think because of our Mexican neighbors, sometimes I think they’re convinced they really know how!

It’s full of fun and enjoyment! It’s good to see a family doing one activity and spending time together. And it’s good that we bring kids to hiking so they will learn how to take care of our nature.

Although we all don’t have the enviable joy of hiking in France! Such memories. I grew up hiking the Northern Alleghenys and we spent many, many a long day on the giant rocks of “Jakes Rocks” at Kinzua Dam in PA. As the years went on and we started taking our kids we found they “adopted” the same rocks we had claimed as ours years ago….

My kids are in hoodies almost every day. It’s crazy! I’m not sure what to think. I’ll blow some of this cool air your way.

When I lived in New York, I had the chance to hike a (tiny) portion of the Appalachian Trail every summer. I loved seeing the trail markings and imagining the same ones across the entire trail. Very cool!

We have a favorite trail at a state park near our house. I should say it’s everyone else’s favorite. I’m usually too busy getting eaten by bugs and taking pictures to enjoy the trail…

We have been many times over the years and despite how small the town is, we never get tired of going. There is also alot of hiking there and just seeing the sights requires climbing since it is a mountain town. Enjoyed your post!

Thanks for letting us travel along with you and your lovely family on your adventure in Paris! I can’t travel right now, so it’s been fun to “virtually” travel with you and see all of the great pictures!
