Weekend in Paris

We had a bit of a rough weekend in Paris.  Talia came down with a double ear infection, strep and conjunctivitis.  But despite that we did manage to see some lovely playgrounds and a most unexpected museum exhibit.

Last time we were in Sainte Chapelle Talia appreciated the art but was not particularly interested in studying the specific iconography.  This time she was fascinated by the full explanations of the images:

Talia LOVED this particular cash register:

A very special exhibit at the Museum of Decorative Arts:

Playmobil!

Enjoying the finer points of the exhibit:

There were of course several long dinners filled with scintillating conversation (here Talia is discussing the history of the Malian railway):

And of course lots of park time with Dalyn:

And a final croissant:

Before we headed North again:
