|Nick opening the Champagne|
I sent the kids out the night before for Champagne, since I wasn't sure what would be open on Sunday. I knew, though, that all the pastry shops would be open, so the kids went out again on Sunday to choose something that would work for a cake. They bought three little tarts, gorgeous confections in raspberry, chocolate, and strawberry, all smothered in cream. They were absolutely wonderful!!

Since we usually re-group around 4:00 or 5:00 o'clock at the flat, to get ready for dinner, I decided that we could do the surprise party then. Fortunately the skies had cleared in the afternoon and we could hold our little party on the terrace. It was special.

Have a wonderful day!!
