A day out in Toulouse

We all had a good nights sleep and the kids slept through - hooray. Hopefully that means they have adjusted to the new time zone. This is a photo of our home for the next two months.

We decided to behave like tourists and go and see the city centre. James did amazingly well navigating the motorway and then the narrow streets to find us a park in a car park building. We then headed for the square. On the way we found a gorgeous merry go round s stopped for the kids to have a go.

In the square was an art exhibition of cows which were very funky.

We then had a wander around the city and had lunch in an outdoor cafe by the gardens.

We walked through the gardens to a playground. James went back to get the car as we had walked a long way and the kids were tired. Jasper spotted a squirrel up a tree so was quite excited by that. We also a beaver outside our apartment this morning.

We were all a bit tired so drove home. James dropped me off at the local shops so I could have a bit of a look around.

Toulouse is a beautiful city and I am looking forward to being able to explore it a bit more when the kids go to school. Even though they enjoyed today they don't really appreciate the beautiful architecture or the groovy shops. Hopefully the more times we sightsee the more they will get out of it.
