I didn't put my camera down very much in Paris, with only two days there, I wanted to make sure to capture as many memories as possible. These kids are so lucky to have a built in destination photographer I tell you. I hope they appreciate it one day! Because they sure don't make it easy on me when I am trying to capture something.
I found a really cute place on www.homeaway that was right in the Le Marais district, an adorable (little) apartment central and close to all the sights.
Day one we went to the Musée de l'Orangerie and Musée d'Orsay afterwards we had lunch at the Tuileries Garden and then went on a boat ride up to the Eiffel Tower. It was a perfect day to spend in Paris. I wish we could have seen more, but there is only so much walking you can do in a day with 3 kids.
Day two we had big plans to get up super early to beat the crowd at the Lourve, so we woke up at the crack of dawn to get there early only to find out that the staff was on strike and the museum was closed! So much for seeing the Mona Lisa. The kids had their own fun by running around and chasing the pigeons. But the other tourists that had planned their whole vacation around seeing the museum were royally pissed. Afterwards, if I can remember correctly, we walked up to the Notre Dame. Walking into the Notre Dame with the choir singing was really breath taking. By then the kids were hungry so we walked around the Latin Quarter, and then had lunch at the Luxembourg gardens.
Here are some of my favourite photos from our short visit there:
