Trey’s First Day in France

Trey at the airport in ParisTrey and William arrived at the Montpelier airport around 1pm on Monday after a long overnight flight from Atlanta.  Considering the lack of sleep and discomfort of plane travel, they were both in pretty good spirits.  William led Trey just outside the doors of the baggage claim area to meet me. Trey had a finger in his nose and a blank stare until he saw me. It was so sweet.

Taureau Piscine at the arenes in Perols, FranceWe returned to the house for some lunch then walked over to the village arena to watch a game called “Taureau Piscine.” (Bull pool).  The youth of the town go into the arena with a young bull and try to persuade it to get in a centrally located makeshift pool.  Trey was more interested in playing with his (already) favorite pick of Nicholas’ old toys, a bulldozer.

Clown & marionette show in Perols, FranceNicholas went for a swim in the family’s small above ground pool and Trey finally decided to get in once Nicholas was getting out. He had a blast.

Later on in the evening was an old fashioned clown and puppet show. However, it was not the most appropriate show for a three year-old (oversized-head Satan character and a decapitation of a marionette by another ghost marionette). We left.
