One of their favorite trips was to the Brittany and Normandy regions of France. Mom had always read about Mont St. Michel and look! Here they are!
Jesse sort of blends in with the marsh grasses, but she's right there, behind Lucky! The tide was out on their way out of Mont St. Michel, so someone (probably Mom) got this great idea to walk through where the water had been. Jesse and Lucky enjoyed it thoroughly, we're sure. Can you say, "mud, silt and stinky goop"? When they got back to where the hotel was ... well, let's just say what hadn't dried and fallen off in the car needed to dry and fall off before they went back inside.
Here are the girls and Dad, kicking back and letting the Channel silt dry.
We heard stories that the maids at that hotel fell in love with our great sisters and brought them buttered croissants every morning. Can you imagine!?!
A favorite day trip was to go to Dinant, Belgium, on the Meuse River. Sometimes they'd stop at Namur. This picture is the girls and Mom taking a break in a park in Namur. Doesn't it look peaceful?
They had more cool European adventures, but Mom hasn't scanned the pictures yet. We'll get her to work on that this week and will post more next Sunday.
One of their best "at home" adventures was their first snowfall! Here they are howling about it with Dad! Wooooooo!
They also did a lot of work, as Sibes always do. Mom took some photography classes while they were there and was working on a series of food still-lifes. As she developed the pictures, she realized Lucky was doing sort of an Alfred Hitchcock thing - she had a cameo appearance somewhere in each picture. Here's our favorite:Mom decided to go with that theme, and it worked out well for her. We're sure it was Lucky's idea!
Tune in again next Sunday as we salute our great-sisters, Jesse and Lucky!
