Tour de France

We had high hopes of seeing some of the Tour de France on Saturday.  The tour made a stop in Tomblaine, which is about an hour and a half from us.  We spent all week kicking around if we should go or not.  We decided to give it a try, but if it didn't work we would just go the extra ten miles into Nancy, France.
 On the way, we noticed this bus.
 Followed by this car.  People were slowing down and honking at them!  We got super excited that we may just be able to follow them right into the heart of Tomblaine!
 We got closer and closer, and then we saw these cars!  About the time we saw these cars, we also lots of stopped traffic!  We quickly realized that our hopes of making it into Tomblaine were probably not going to happen.  A police car zoomed up on the shoulder and waved the Tour de France cars over to the shoulder so that he could give them an escort!  We, on the other hand, sat in stopped traffic for about twenty minutes.  
We got right behind one of the cars.  Look how tiny those seats are!!!  My behind hurts looking at them.  The wheels are so tiny, as well!  Maybe next year!!
