1 Day in ParisπŸ‡³πŸ‡±-Let’s Make it a Good One πŸ—Όβ€οΈπŸ’™β›²οΈπŸ’’πŸ›πŸ–Ό

We had one day to see the City of Light, and we were prepared to pack it all in. πŸ“It was a lofty request to ask of the kids, but we kept our fingers crossed, and set off on our journey! Since the forecast called for rain later in the day πŸ’¦we tried to do the outdoor sights first and our 1st stop was of course the Eiffel Tower!πŸ—ΌπŸ“Έ

πŸ’’ The kids were intent on finding “point zero” the center of Paris and excited to feed the pigeons! We got some super cute action shots with the birds! On purpose of course lol πŸ“ΈπŸ§πŸ¦

After the Eiffel we headed to the Grande Roue de Paris for the sickest panoramic views of Paris.πŸŽ‘πŸŽ‘πŸŽ‘β›²οΈπŸ“ΈπŸ”­ And then a quick snack of crepes and waffles and of course chocolate faces!

In order to keep the kids all smiles we made a pitstop in the Jardin Des Tuileries ⛲️and let the kids bounce off some steam! When the raindrops startedβ˜”οΈ we took that as our cue for some indoor sightseeing…

Time for some culture kids! We headed to the Musee D’Orsay and everyone grabbed 5 postcards each and set off on their mission to be the first to find all 5!😬 We must have missed some along the way because we were all unsuccessful πŸ€”πŸ˜€

After a quick refresh at the corner Brasserie we pedicabbed our way to the Louvre. The driver even hit some bumps along the way which made for an exciting ride and some giggly kids. πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸš΄πŸ½I jumped out all big smiles and said to Craig “well that was a fun idea!” πŸ‘πŸ½To which he informed me it was not €10 but instead €10 a person for a grand total of 40 euro for a few blocks. Ouch. Mic drop…πŸ˜³πŸŽ€βœ–οΈ
