The mom and her kids walked all over Paris , seeing the sights. (One the mom's famous jokes has always been that her greatest weight-loss plan is to go to Paris, and eat all she wants , and come home 5 pounds thinner. She calls this the "Uncle Bill walks you to death weight loss plan." )
These lucky kids got to visit museums and gardens - here, walking up to the Louvre , from the Tuilleries.
Every time she comes to Paris, the mom feels it is important to make a homage to the ( reconstructed, it must be noted for purists ) famous hangout of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Joyce, the Murphys, Gertrude Stein, and all the other famous American writers and ex patriots.
