here are some photos from our morning exploring montmartre and the sacre coeur! we did a lot of walking this day (from the centre pompidou to the sacre coeur and later to the louvre) but the weather was autumn perfection so we enjoyed being outside most of the day. montmarte is probably one of my favorite parts of paris. i know it’s pretty touristy and cliche, but i love it anyway. all those old french artists displaying their work while smoking cigars! haha. i am such a tourist. i eat that stuff up!
ps. if you’re curious on where clothing and items are from in this post, i listed all of it HERE in my last post. these photos were taken with our Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR, which we use for both full HD video and stills.
^^^how can you not love it, right? that artists square is just darling.^^^
^^^right? in my next life, please someone remind me i wanna be a painter.^^^
^^^and our own tiny artist soaking it all in.^^^
^^^we went to the louvre later on that evening but i had my notes all wrong and had read somewhere online that they were open until 11PM that night but no way, they had totally closed at 5 or 6. it was one of those moments where i was kicking myself because i don’t even remember where i read that, but i had written it down in my notes. when you only have 5 days in paris and you’re traveling with littles, you gotta keep on top of your game if you wanna make the most of your trip. anyway, a disappointing moment of the trip for me. i had been to the louvre before, but josh hadn’t ever been so i felt a little bad i had dragged him and the kids all the way there when they were closed and now he wouldn’t be able to go in on this trip. we warmed up inside the big shopping mall they have downstairs though for a good hour while the kids ran free up and down the halls and played with some iPads in the apple store. we were able to connect to wifi there and figure out a dinner spot and map it out before heading back out into the cold. you win some, you lose some.^^^
^^^i don’t think they minded missing out on seeing the mona lisa though. i mean, iPads!^^^
^^^more crepe lovin! i’m ending every one of these paris posts with a food pic. ;) ^^^
