The Usticks: What a nice day for a walk

What a nice day for a walk

What do you do when naps are abandoned? Go outside! So Avery and I took advantage of the 67 and sunny weather (sorry, Krista!) and took a nice, long stroll around our neighborhood. I brought the camera along, too.

This is the reason I groan every time I'm asked what my address is. Try saying this out loud and having someone write down what they think you said! Then they ask if that's road, street, lane, etc. and you reply with "well 'rue' is the French word for 'road'" blah blah blah and hope they don't think you're talking down to them for having to explain it! Ah, the joys of living in Les Chateaux :-)

Phew! We're back home...

snooty Americans, always butchering the french language!

Hahaha, so true. Yeah you guys and the Rudys have the worst time with your streets!! I just have people laugh and make some silly joke about ND when I say "Glacier Dr."

I LOVE the one with her tongue sticking out! I might need to frame that one :-) Great idea to just take a walk if she won't nap - almost as relaxing (for her, not you I guess!). At least it's enjoyable for both :-)
