Then we picnicked just outside of the gardens of the château de Compiègne (no picnicking allowed inside) and went to explore the gardens.
Before heading home, we stopped by the hardware store and finally found an umbrella for our patio table (pictures of that will also come later) - so now we are all set for our summer guests, if we can just convince the sun to come out and the weather to warm up again. Right now we still have the fire going in the fireplace!
