Picnic in Paris & Randy Gets a Haircut!.

By Posted in - Big Trip & Budget Travel & Europe & France & Paris & Photography Posts & Photos on April 25th, 2011

We had a lot of picnics in Paris. The entire city was full of ideal picnic spots and with the bread, cheese & wine being so tasty and inexpensive we just couldn’t help ourselves. It was such a great way to eat lunch on the cheap and take in the scenes of Paris.

One day we found the perfect spot! A little canal full of live aboard boats, plenty of people relaxing on the grass like us and beautiful scenery. During lunch we discovered that Randy really needed a haircut. We had a small pair of scissors on our  Swiss Army knife and had downed just enough wine to make it seem like a logical haircut.

Even though you wouldn’t know it Randy is kind of picky about his hair and has never let me cut it. I was pretty excited that I was getting the chance to finally trim it! Also, I should note that I am not a hairdresser by any stretch of the imagination. But I took the tiny scissors and gave Randy the best little Frenchman haircut I could muster. What do you think?

      It may not look like a lot – I was nervous to go short but trust me it was. His hair was very straggly – I trimmed it up 🙂 @Jilianne @ Cotswolds Cottages,

    A picnic in Paris sounds amazing right about now… as it’s cold and rainy where I am.

    Aww how sweet. Nothing like some cheese and wine. The pictures are so soft, almost feathery. I love them.

    Very nice pictures! Randy doesn’t look so excited about the haircut though 🙂 Next time you are in Paris, let us know and we’ll show you some other great spots for picnics (and possibly a hairdresser address if you want 😉

    Picnics in Paris sound so idyllic! Ive never been to Paris but it looks like a picnic is essential there. I love that you’re using a Swiss Army Knife to cut his hair as well 🙂

      When you go, you’ll have to picnic. We did it all the time because the bread & cheese & wine is so good, yet so budget! @Laura,

    There are winos with knives in a park near my house too, but they are not nearly as fun or interesting as you guys… 🙂

    • Bethany -

      May 3, 2011 at 11:40 am

      haha… I think they are probably a lot more interesting than us. I think I should consult you before naming any more posts. Wino’s with knives would’ve gotten a lot of hits!! hahaa@Raymond,

        My rates are reasonable, and test screenings are through the roof. 🙂 @Bethany,

    Haha – wonderful! Glad to know I’m not the only one cutting my own hair (and sometimes John’s) on the road =)

    Cute! Love that look in the last shot of Randy that you took of his haircut. So great that you were innovative with the Swiss Army Knife!

      The haircut looked great for a couple weeks but it grew out terrible. At one point I mistook him for a woman in her 40’s from the back. I guess my cutting skills were short lived. 🙂 @Natalie T.,
