paris.

Paris.
I've wanted to visit for as long as I can remember- my man squeeze made it possible. You can't fly direct home from Prague, so we flew into Paris and stayed a few days before heading home. 
Arrival Day & Day 1
saw a rainbow on the way to Paris, on the plane. This picture doesn't do it justice. My hadley loves rainbows- so I had to take picture and send it to her. 
Nothing like starting your Paris adventure with a car wreck in your Uber... a 30min drive from the airport turned into 2.5hrs. I may not understand much French, but hand signs are universal! hah
The desserts.... I can't even...
 {a few days into our trip, brock was not all smiles about my macaron intake. It was actually quite disgusting how many I consumed on this trip}
 I totally teared up when I rounded the corner and saw the Eiffel Tower for the first time. 
 Day trip out to Versailles 
 Total tourists.
 Evening stroll to find some dinner
 Day 2
Bike riding, rue de cler market, eiffel tower, Pont des Arts {love lock bridge}, macaron class
 Macaron Class!
We at ate an amazing restaurant that night- Monsieur Bleu. Then I insisted we walk to the eiffel tower so I could see it in all its beauty up close and personal. 
IT SPARKLES 
every hour on the hour.
I was like a little child seeing Mickey Mouse for the first time.
Day 4
Remaining tourist stuff, Souvenirs, The Louvre, Les Deux Magots, Arc de Triompe
 I insisted on seeing the Mona Lisa. The lines were hours long to get inside... we figured out a secret though {where there's a will, there's a way- plus, brock wouldn't have done it if we hadn't found another way hah}
There's a side entrance, to the street- we didn't wait behind a single person. We walked right in, through security, and up to the Mona Lisa. We kept thinking we were doing something wrong, or in the wrong place. Nope, people just flock together...ignorantly haha
 I definitely got a little teary-eyed seeing her. I'm so weird... hah
 
 headed home to my babies
killing time...
 The delay on the passport entrance camera got us good 
 home again, home again
