Europe Trip Part Two

The last stop on our trip was Paris, France!  We were only there about a day and a half, but we got so much done!  We didn't stay in the greatest of hotels....well let's be honest, it was the worst hotel we've ever stayed in I think.  We laughed about it, and then slid the table in front of our door for a little "extra" protection :)
We woke up on Thursday 10.6 ready to take on Paris.  After some breakfast at Starbucks, we headed to find Notre Dame Cathedral.  It was enormous and made with such detail.

Next up was The Louvre = amazing!

We stopped and had lunch which included a cheese plate.  It was...interesting.
Then it was on our way to The Eiffel Tower, which we were both excited to see Paris from the top :)

We had a little more time before it started getting late, so we decided to go to Galleries Lafayette.  It was 7 stories of shopping, each floor catering to something different.  It was very expensive and pretty overwhelming, so we stayed on the children's floor and picked up a few gifts for Hadleigh.  Afterwards, we decided to go see The Moulin Rouge.  I was really excited since my girlfriends and I *love* that movie.  Here's some shots we got.

The trip had some hiccups, but overall we were so fortunate to have the opportunity to see such great places.  And it was nice for Daniel and I to get away just the two of us.  We missed Hadleigh dearly and were both ready to come back to give her hugs and kisses :)
