Even Kids Love Paris!

Whew!  I knew these two weeks would be a blur, but the days are really flying by!  I had a fun-filled week with my college amie and her three children.  The weather turned cold- probably the coldest several days we have had this fall- but somehow it just added to the excitement of being in Paris.

The afternoon of their arrival, after the required nap, we went to the top of the Arc de Triomphe, so they could see Paris from above.

The next morning we took the bus to the Rodin Museum.

We walked down to see the Christmas lights and windows at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette.

Hot chocolate was the perfect antidote to the cold weather.

Not pictured were Versailles, the  Louvre, Musee Nissim de Comondo, Parc Monceau, L’Orangerie, le Bon Marche, the sewer tour (you’re welcome), the Eiffel Tower, and many (many) delightful meals.

I think the kids dug Paris.  Their mom and I had a great time, too.  We’re already plotting her return solo trip, so we can hit some of the places we missed this time.  And drink some more wine.  Old friends are the best, aren’t they?

I hope you are all having a nice week as you think about your upcoming Thanksgiving feast.  I really need to start thinking about mine, or it will consist of only the turkey I ordered and lots of bread, cheese and wine.  Hmmmmm- that sounds pretty good, now that I think of it.
