This morning the girls and I went to Rue Lafayette to pick up breakfast and some other lovely croissant-y like things for the office. They each picked out pastry wrapped cheese and bacon, and after being warmed up a bit behind the counter they were a little too hot to handle. We walked across the street to our car, and the girls ran over to the fence to watch a bunny hopping around. I thought they looked so cute watching the little guy through the fence that I went for my camera. By the time I had it out the bunny was long gone and my photo opportunity missed.
“Girls! Can I still take a photo of you guys by the fence?” They weren’t too thrilled at the idea, so I tried to sweeten the deal. Their pastries were still too warm, so I offered them each a croissant to hold for the photo. I felt a bit silly with the pose, but I was hoping to get a few close ups with the fence and the morning light and the green grass and the sweet girls. It didn’t work. I only took a few grainy ones. They weren’t into it at all, and I couldn’t even get close while trying to keep the oldest one from looking bored / cheesy / sarcastic and the little one from dropping the croissant. I should have been more worried about her stealing a nibble. I thought maybe she had pinched off a bit of the corner, but now that I look at these photos, the evidence is written all over her face.
No one seemed to mind at the office. They were cleaned out in under an hour.
Haven’t eaten there yet? You really should go.
