#1) We need to put Paris and New York on your travel itinerary - ASAP (or ASABIH)!

#2) Did Nancy really tell the girls to NOT look at naked people in the museums? LOL, it couldn't have been Grandma Sue...

1) Someday we will definitely do Paris and New York!

2) Yes, that was Nancy! She took them aside and said "When we go in here you'll see some silly pictures and statues of people without clothes on.. just don't look at them." and I started laughing and told her that art wouldn't hurt them.

Hey, Gina -- re: Your List: Can't Touch This. :) Heh.

Yours was great! I told you, I had to combine me, my husband and my daughter to make it even slightly interesting. I'VE never been to Paris -- they have. Sniff.
