We’re in Paris!!!

Bonjour!!!  Okay, a few of you guessed it right on my last post.  I thought I would have more people guessing New York City!  I believe that when France gave the United States our Statue of Liberty, they made a smaller version to keep in Paris.  She is located on the River Seine and when we looked out our hotel window the first night, we saw her there all lit up and beautiful! 

Here are some photos we have taken of Paris.  The weather is HOT and the food is wonderful!!

I think this is the neatest thing we saw in Paris…the Eiffel Tower is so impressive and absolutely beautiful when it’s all lit up at night.  Words and pictures don’t do it justice! Rich and Hannah went to the top of it…they walked up the first 700+ steps and then took the elevator from the second level up to the top!  Taylor didn’t want to go up because of her poor vision so I stayed on the ground with her.

With all the wonderful(and extremely expensive) French food, this is where my girls wanted to eat each day…we only ate there once however!

Some more “ART” at the Louvre Museum…Taylor was NOT happy about posing in front of a naked man statue and said she never wanted to see another one in her life!!!

Once again, we left our three youngest home with Grandma and Grandpa!  We miss them alot but they wouldn’t enjoy Paris and the fast pace we keep.

Finally, Holly(of Holly’s Kick Ass Bows) is the winner of the prize.  Email me, Holly and I will get it out in the mail to you!!

Paris looks beautiful. Thank you for sharing the pictures and enjoy your time there! And I would probably want to eat at MacDonalds, at least once just to make sure that the French know how to cook MacDonalds, cause it's really hard.
