Strasbourg and Soufflenheim France

We got our first snow today!  We had a trip to France planned and the 
weather was not going to stop us!
 Strasbourg has their own Notre Dame.  It took over 400 years to build!
 It was so cold.  The boys and I sat and looked at the stained glass windows and the beautiful columns while Nate, Justin, and Emily explored the cathedral.
 We were just beginning to thaw out!
 Crazy hat hair!
 We had about a fifteen minute walk to Le Petite, a really cute area with canals.  

It was so pretty!

Here's my famous self-timer picture of the whole gang!
 On our walk back to the car, we stopped for some French treats.
 We left with truffles, chocolate, and macaroons.  
After Strasbourg, we stopped in Soufflenheim for some French pottery!  
The little village is lined with artisan pottery.  Each shop had its own signature designs.  We scored here and I would definitely go back!
