The boys flew to Paris the Thursday before Ted's birthday and drove a rental car to Bayeux. They got to see the Bayeux Tapestry--amazing!! Then Friday they spent touring various places around Normandy. While I'm definitely bummed that I didn't get to go, I know this trip meant so much more to Ted, being such a history lover, and I'm thankful he had the chance to share the experience with our older boys. Friday evening they drove back to Paris so they could be ready for a full schedule on Saturday: the palace at Versailles, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. (Don't you think they could have squeezed in a few more stops, lol?!) And then Sunday was travel-home day. I think they got their money's worth out of those plane tickets!!
