Challah Bread French Toast with Caramelized Pear and Blueberry Syrup

This morning I made French Toast (pain purdu for my Francophile readers) for my teenage son; his favorite breakfast of all time. This is a variation of a recipe I've made for him before (click here for additional and more explicit pictures). This time I used challah bread which I carried home on my bike yesterday. I made the syrup using fruit juice, a little sugar, blueberries which I had in the freezer, and some fresh pear. Did he like it...well, you'll see in the last photo.
