How Do You Say In French “We We’re not dressed appropriately for this Paris weather?๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ—ผ๐Ÿ˜ฑโ„๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ

When we touched down in Paris today we were very unpleasantly met with Hail. The weather, not the child. โ˜”๏ธโ„๏ธThat was a far cry from the warm beaches of Taormina 1 week ago ๐ŸโŒ. All primped and ready to take Paris by storm we set out with our fancy get ups, ballet flats and wedges ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ก, light jackets and thin pants and headed for our late afternoon stroll up the Champs Elysees.

We climbed about 275 stairs to the top and were rewarded with some beautiful views from the top and could see the entire city below us in 360 degrees. ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ™

The level of cold was rising as the temperatures were falling. โฌ‡๏ธ We took our few pics and ran the hell out of there! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’จ

Once we arrived at the main event- The Eiffel Tower and we saw the security line, we knew we could do no more. ๐Ÿ—ผ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ

So we headed to the gift shop and desperately bought what we could. ๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ถThankfully we did because the temperature app showed 42 degrees and we had to wait about an hour outside to go thru security and wait for the elevators to take us to Eiffel 58, our dinner destination!๐Ÿ•’๐Ÿ•œ๐Ÿ†™

We had a romantic and memorable meal high above Paris and watched the sunset!๐Ÿท๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฎ๐ŸŒ‡

By the time dessert came my feet were finally thawed and warmed up, just in time to take my bare ballet slippered feet back outside. Il fait tres froid!!! โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŒฌ๐Ÿ˜จVery unfortunate that we were dressed inappropriately for the weather because it kind of ruined the special dinner. I made the kids buck up and suffer another 7 minutes so we could enjoy the full experience and walked around the halfway point and see the amazing views from above.๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ”ผ๐Ÿ”ฝโ–ถ๏ธโ—€๏ธ

We played our cards just right and rode down the elevators while the tower twinkled, it happens once an hour for just a few minutes. ๐Ÿ•š๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ—ผWe exited just in time to enjoy the sparkling tower from the ground and had no time to spare. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸThankfully we had just enough time to get this last picture before rushing into the warmth of the cab! Bonne Nuit! ๐ŸŒ›โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™
