We're home from Paree! We had such a great time! We are already talking about when we want to go back. We stayed at the Westin which was pretty much in the middle of everything. Great location! We enjoyed all the touristy sites and ate at some of the most delicious French restaurants. Contrary to what many people have told me, the French were SO friendly! I don't know if it's because we are so used to Europeans now or what but they were so helpful and nice. We even had one restaurant owner let Miles run all over his place. The staff was playing with him and giving him cookies. It was such a fun time!

Here are some pics from our trip.

It's Valentines, we're at the Eiffel tower...Who wouldn't share a smooch? Actually, we had our friends chanting "kiss! kiss! kiss!" 

This is the famous Louvre which houses many famous sculptures and paintings.

Inside the Louvre was the original Mona Lisa painting. So here we are trying to do our Mona Lisa smiles in front of...The Mona Lisa!

Here is the Arc de Triomph. It was in the middle of a GIANT roundabout. The kind where if you aren't careful you can just keep going round and round. We dared not cross. We learned later we could of taken a tunnel underneath to reach it.

Of course you know what this is! The Eiffel tower is just one of those things where you don't realize how awesome it is until you are staring right at it. It was gorgeous at night. It was like a light show!

This is the bathroom in our hotel room. I loved the view.

Brad and I standing in front of the Notre Dame.

Our friends Nathan and Marissa. They came with us and we had such a blast with them! Can you see the Eiffel tower way in the back?

Our last night and we are making a toast.
