Sometimes pictures say so much more than words. I’ll get to the details of how we got around in Paris and Strasbourg with the kids soon but I wanted to get these out of my camera:
Enjoying pastries and juice in a cafe
Ordering crepes in Montmartre
Hanging with the crowds at Sacre Coeur
Peeking into the Rose Bakery
Admiring the Stained glass in Notre Dame
Taking time for Coffee
Tasting Macaron after Macaron
Takeout coffee is hard to find, but we are Seattleites and our hands feel otherwise empty.
Visiting the Notre Dame
Inside the Gare D’est or East Station
Thankfully no one fell in the fountain at the L’ouvre
Watching the carousel in front of KB coffee
The kids liked trying out their french and buying things with Euros.
One of many carousel rides
This guy was phenomenal! We loved watching the performers near Sacre Coeur
And scrolling through my photostream I realized the difference in traveling to France with my kids versus the times I’ve been without. I know we definitely spent a lot more time at playgrounds and carousels that I might have only given a nod to on trips before. We didn’t visit a bucket list of bakeries and restaurants and sights. But we took a lot of time to play and enjoy and the kids opened up my eyes to parts of Paris I never would have seen without them. We had a lot more spontaneity and simpleness, and it was so nice to be in such a beautiful city and explore it together.
