Day 111: today we went to the Asian market. Since he's addicted to coconut water, ian decided he needed to go straight the source. This was achieved with less broken stuff than I would have thought and with the added bonus of a little comic relief :)

Day 112: finally caved and took my car through the car wash. Kids declared the car unrecognizable it was so clean!

 day 100:  yeah 100...and i'm still sick, sick, sick.  so here is a detail of the wood work at the paris opera house (from our trip).

 day 101: feeling vaguely human. it was sort of raining/snowing today so that's a pretty flat sky through the trees.

 day 102: there was some debate on the trip where 'the rain in spain' song originated.  decided i needed to 'educate' brownyn on My Fair Lady :)

day 103: bronwyn and i are both sick now.  competing to see who can hack up a lung first.

day 104: today is april 14th...nuff said.

day 94: we stumbled across this 'little' church in our paris wanderings.

day 95: the paris opera house is by far the most opulent  building we have ever been in.

 day 96: homeward bound!

day 97: today i was flattened by a sinus cold that literally kept me in bed the entire day.  so, for your viewing pleasure, the arc de triomphe from 2 days earlier.

 day 98: managed to get up to take child to school but that was about it.  this photo was from our last night in brugge at a tiny little restaurant with lovely food.

day 99: spent a lovely afternoon with my mother-in-law.  did i think to take her picture? no!  this is the ring i got in brugge, that i love too :)

Day 91: excellent dinner in Brugge, Belgium tonight. Though I think my "salad with bacon" should have been called "bacon with some garnish". So much bacon! ;) that's Ian's Dover sole in the background.
