Picnic on the Seine Summer "Kick Off" Picnic!

From Paris with Love....... The "gang!"

Paris Picnic - FIRST ANNUAL! June 18, 2010 THIS IS HOW WE ROCK....

Though the weather was "picnic perfect" the crowd sure was! We had a FANTASTIC time at our FIRST Paris Picnic on the Seine of the year.
This was our "summer kick-off" and though the weather didn't want to behave properly, it didn't hold us back in any way from enjoying ourselves
New friend and fellow blogger Karin was there... Animesh and two new friends, Mina and Rajeesh (visiting Paris from San Fran/Mina and Bangalore, India/Rajeesh), Dawn/Tom + their parents visiting Paris for a month, Brigitte, our resident singer and of course, your's truly, cupcakes in tote!

We had such a FABULOUS time.. that I'm sad that not everyone could make it.. but, never fear, there will be many more!

Thanks for joining us in spirit...

Brigitte and Animesh take a pause to smile for the camera (in the background-- there's some good wine to be had)!!

New faces-- and what smiling ones!! Wait! Cupcakes and lemoncello-- what could be better?!!

Father and son. How cute!
