More fun quotes from Kate. Last week I picked her up from school and she said, excitedly: "Mommy, I need to tell you something really funny. It's hilarious!" She sounded just like David!

Here's a photo of Kate enjoying some pasta in Paris.

We spent the last week in Paris. The entire family traveled for the celebration of GrandDad Jim and Grandmother Elsie's 40th anniversary. Kate was a real trooper most of the time, despite what she called "back and forth, back and forth" of subway trains, a lot of walking, and many places to visit. We took her to the very top of the Eiffel Tower, the Tuilerie gardens (she loved the trampoline) and Euro Disney (where the lines were so much shorter than Disney in Florida). It was a great trip, and it taught us a few things about traveling with a 4-year-old to a place with a big time difference.

Besides being a good traveler, Kate also surprised us with some hilarious quotes. The first - and in my opinion the best - came at the end of a busy and tiring day, when she started getting whiny. Jeff picked her up to go down the subway stairs and she shouted, very offended: "Put me down! This is ridiculous!". When we laughed, she got even more upset: "Stop laughing. It's not funny!". I disagree.

The other funny quote came the next day, when we were all gathered in a hotel room watching her play with her Disney dolls. When she took it upon herself to wake up the Sleeping Beauty doll with a kiss and we asked her why, the justification was "I couldn't find any good men!". GrandDad Jim and Jeff, both in the room, took notice.
