what to do with a newly minted toddler on her first birthday?!? take her to a place she can toddle about, of course. in paris that meant going to parc floral, an immense park that used to be napoleon’s hunting grounds. a band, lots of kids and a playground made for a very happy zelda on her birthday.
follow that up with chocolate cake, strawberry ice cream and a mistakenly trick candle, the only thing left was a nap on mama’s back afterwards while her and papa toured the decorative arts exhibit at the louvre.
