thank you for indulging me as i shared our photos from our week in paris. we really had a wonderful time and it was such a treat to be there as a family and share the experience together. looking back at all of these photos were so much fun. i think i’m going to put them into a little coffee table book of sorts so the kids can flip through them in their hands and “remember.” we hope to continue to travel with them through the years to come. samson and eleanor were playing trains and airplanes today so i asked eleanor today where she would like to go on a train or airplane next and she told me she’d like to go camping! haha. so that is definitely making it onto our list of things to do in 2014!
ps. if you’ve been following along this is old news but if you’re new and curious, HERE is a list of where the things we wore are from. and these photos were taken with our Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR, which we use for both full HD video and stills.
^^^i gotta tell you, autumn in paris is where it’s at!^^^
^^^just taking it all in at luxembourg gardens.^^^
^^^the colors alone. cannot get over them.^^^
^^^notre dame. can you spy josh and the littles below? haha.^^^
^^^at one point while at the gardens we thought it’d be a good idea to feed the birds!^^^
^^^….oh hey kids isn’t this so fun feeding the ducks and birds? hahahah…. and then…..^^^
^^^….they almost killed us. not really, but talk about aggressive birdies! lesson learned: DO NOT feed the birds in paris!^^^
^^^he has longer arms than me so we finally figured out that he should be the one to take our selfies. ;) ^^^
^^^a bit of the view from the roof of the pompidou. the view is kind of perfection up there.^^^
^^^just looking, not feeding this time around. we had learned our lesson by this point. ;) ^^^
^^^we had some of the most delicious steak frites at le relais de l’entrecote. so good!!^^^
^^^jet lagged hotel space at 3 something in the morning.^^^
^^^oh, this family of mine. ^^^
^^^tiniest explorers checking out the eiffel tower at night.^^^
^^^and riding the big wheel at night was incredible!^^^
^^^not a bad view at the top of the ferris wheel!^^^
^^^no matter what way you looked, the view was amazing.^^^
^^^before catching a taxi to the airport to head home, we walked over to the love lock bridge, pont des arts.^^^
^^^we should have brought our own lock with us but didn’t think about it so we bought one on the bridge (for wayyyy too much) and wrote all of our names on it before locking it up! we tried to find it just a few minutes after we locked it up and couldn’t! that bridge has reached max capacity with locks!^^^
^^^samson was very excited about this! he might have tried to open every lock he could with those keys right there.^^^
what a fun trip. thanks for following along! see you in 2014!!!!
