After spending Saturday inside the palace, thankfully the weather cooperated enough to let us spend Sunday enjoying the gardens. Despite this being my 8th time at Versailles, I'd never visited the gardens during the fountain show. The gardens are huge and full of fountains, but they are only turned on during spring and summer on specific days.
I couldn't help myself. We've been married for 8 months now... I still don't think David's quite used to the fact that once in a while I dance in public and make him take pictures.
Before making our way around to see all of the fountains, our first stop was taking the trolley over to the Grand and Petit Trianons. The trianons are small mansions where the royal family could get away from their very public lives in Versailles. Anyone off the street who was dressed well enough could come inside the palace and try to get a glimpse of the king and queen. So you can imagine the appeal of being able to get away to a more private place.

There are so many beautiful pavilions and statues around these gardens! Every time you turn a corner you know you'll come across something else like this.
Oh, Versailles. I don't think I could ever get tired of you. The palace itself is wonderful... but the gardens alone are 100% worth seeing.
