Jardin De Luxembourg

On our last day in Paris we just took it easy. There was this great play park near our apartment. The girls had a blast. I wish I had better pictures of this one ride thingy. It was a large oval shape and the kids pulled those black round seats up on a platform and sat on it. It was tilted just so the kids would just go flying around that oval like crazy. Scared the life out of me but Maya wouldn't get off of it! They had a great time.

Arc de Triomphe

I was doing so well with my postings but then I fell behind so I'll just take a minute and finish up the Paris Trip.

Paris Disneyland

Wow am I tired. We left the apartment this morning at 8:10 and didn't get home until about 6:45. My feet are killing me. But my kids are happy. We had the best time at Disneyland. The girls were really good, we rode countless rides, ate Mickey Mouse shaped pizza, saw Mickey Mouse, chatted with Snow white and came home. I have no idea how many Weight Watchers points I walked off today but I hope it was a lot. That pizza was really good! Now we are just praying for a LONG night Mommy and Daddy need it!

We did it! We braved going to the Louvre with two small, strong willed children today. I have to say that they were relatively good. Of course we did have to threaten them with not going to Disneyland tomorrow! We can now say we have seen the Mona Lisa!

French Parking

Here are some scary examples of French parking. I don't think I would dare ever park my car for fear of never getting it out again! These pictures were taken from the window in our apartment. Now you have some reference for how many people were out on this little street during the Techno Parade.

On day 3 we hopped on the RER Train and went out into the country to the Palace at Versailles. Unfortunately we didn't see much. Maya was having a bad day and Kim and Brian had sore feet and legs from the day before. Gemma loved all of the flowers and felt the need to "say Hi" to all of them.
