Paris in July – Tennis anyone?

France 261Here we are at the French Open in 2010, the clay courts are cool, right?  The line was long to get in and then I didn’t have proper ID so we had to wait some more, but we had a great day, even if we spent too much time baking in the sun.  It was fun to get up close and personal at the smaller courts and in the earlier rounds that meant we saw some great matches. Another great day in Paris with friends.  (I look like I have an elf ear, right?)

I post this today in honor of Andy Murray’s Wimbledon win yesterday!  The first British man to win since 1936.  I was so happy for him and loved his emotion after winning the title.  We’re tennis fans here (Jason more than me since he’s actually a good player) and we’ve been to two of the four big tournaments, next up, Wimbledon!

  4. So jealous of your trip to the French Open. The closest I ever got was ordering a Roland Garros shirt for my brother’s birthday. Funny that the French don’t call it the French Open. They just call it Roland Garros. I have a weekly French meme throughout the year on Mondays if you ever want to join in. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  7. I’m so jealous! Can you pack me in your suitcase when you do head off to Wimbledon?! I was really excited for Murray. That was a great win.
