Sending Tucker off to France last week, we all had high hopes for gifts that he would bring back.
He brought me some yummy dark chocolate. Grace got a soft, orange scarf.
Earl got a rock.
"I know this seems lame," he said as he handed Earl the smooth, brown stone, but it came from Omaha Beach.
He showed us a picture he had taken on the beach with the rock in his hand.
In an attempt to redeem himself for the rock, Tucker also gave us a bottle of wine. He had pictures from the cave that they toured and where he purchased a 10 Euro bottle of wine. He didn't say if he tasted several in an attempt to find the right wine.
We were a little surprised that he was allowed to bring it in to the U.S. since he's under 21, but we didn't question it.
We enjoyed some wine on the front porch last night and it was delicious.
