Our First Day In Paris.



Backing up a week to the first day we arrived in Paris.  It was a looooong day.  A 10 hour flight, and a full day wandering the streets.  We went met up with our friends, the Hofheins, and went to the Eiffel Tower.


The line to go to the top was about 2 hours long, but we waited, because it was a once in a lifetime chance to see all of Paris from a birds-eye view.

Then we walked over to the Louvre, which had already closed.  We walked around the grounds and watched the lights of the city turn on as the sun began to go down.



Right near the Louvre is a little amusement park.  The lights, and the hope of gelato beckoned us, so we went over to see what we could see.


Not only did we find gelato, we found a park, with a fountain.


It was a great day, and we were happy to spend it with dear friends.

You look so beautiful in that video. The very "end" shot (snort) made me laugh out loud.

I missed you on Sunday. This (more than) made up for it.
