Thanks for a lovely report. Kudos on your early starts! Very envious. Will definitely visit the Rodin museum next time as it made everyone's top 3 list! You may have enjoyed a picnic at Jardin du Luxembourg, but even there I don't think sitting on the grass is allowed. Lots of park benches, though, if I recall correctly. Best of luck on your next adventures. How lucky to be based in the UK for a while -- so much to see and do there, as well as easy access to the rest of Europe! Enjoy!!!

Pictures, if you don't mind seeing a bunch of photos of my kids in front of the sites:

The pictures are delightful! You know your kids are having a good time when they ham it up like that! Thanks for sharing.

ID - really enjoyed this, thanks. Good to see you did not feel bound to structure your visit around 'entertaining' the kids - too much of that here and generally IMO. And yes, I found even the vacuum packed ham in France miles better than our fresh off the bone stuff.

Hi Indy-dad,
Great pictures.. I hope to have many of the same with three girls in front of the sights. Thank you for sharing your trip and knowledge with us. We have added London to our travel plans. I am in the process of organizing that leg of the trip right now. Any suggestions???? Enjoy a wonderful summer with your family.

I actually haven't been to London since we moved here. We did go for a short trip 2 years ago when visiting friends (Tower of London, Windsor) but I wouldn't be much help (might want a separate post). Look into the Eurostar and open-jaw flying -- that seems to be standard advice. Good luck!
