Throwback Thursday: Champagne, 2000

Thursday, May 28.

Although my college graduation was over a week ago, I'm still in a pretty celebratory mood. In that festive spirit, here's a special Throwback Thursday to 2000 -- um, fifteen years ago?! -- when our family took a quick trip to France's beloved Champagne wine region.




Naturally, we had to visit the two biggest names in the business: Moët & Chandon.



But Champagne isn't only about, well, champagne. The city of Reims, located in the Marne department of Champagne-Ardenne, is a particularly famous and historic city that predates the invention of champagne -- and, in fact, of France itself! In the photo below, we posed in front of the city's famous statue of Joan of Arc.




Of course, no road trip is complete without at least one impromptu inspection of the local playgrounds.
