Paris with kids watching swans in the park

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:

Takeout coffee is hard to find, but we are Seattleites and our hands feel otherwise empty.

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.

    You and the kids look like you’re having a ton of fun in Paris. I find it interesting that there’s so much to do in the City of Lights that even though we went there last summer, there’s very little overlap between your pictures and mine. I look forward to hearing more about your travels there.

      We had so much fun! There were so many kid-friendly things I never noticed before. And now I have to go read your summer blogs to check out what to see if we go back:)
