Snails

Jill had a nice plate of escargot in Paris a couple of days ago – but I’m not sure if she’ll eat them again. She really enjoyed it…..the primary flavor being butter.

I think yesterday’s highlight for Jill and Andy (yes, the 19-year-old boy) was finding and playing with snails they found in Da Vinci’s park. Jill bonded with some of them and decided her next pet will be a snail. Therefore…. they are now off of the menu.

Andy set up a snail race while he was waiting for his dad to examine mock-ups of Da Vinci’s inventions. Herman the snail won the race handily.

This is one of my favorite parts of vacation. The part where the kids are NOT listening to iPods and playing on game systems, but instead are entertaining themselves and interacting with the world around them – and each other.

Way to go Herman! (No, we are not smuggling a French snail back to the US with us. Jill will need to get one after she gets home.)
