Weekend in Paris...

The kids and I took the train into Paris to meet Steve this weekend.  The weather was perfect and we had a fantastic time, no pepper spray this time!  We did come across a demonstration and police brigade while we were trapped on the upper deck of a tour bus with no quick escape but all was peaceful (my heart still skipped a beat when I saw and heard the commotion). Here are a few pictures from our trip and I will post more soon...
The famous Moulin Rouge.  Spectacular, spectacular! Anyone else see the movie? :)


View of Paris from Montmartre

There she is...from Montmartre

An artist's square in the shadow of Montmartre

Most of the artists were painting right there in the square, amazing to watch!


Fortunately there was a carrousel in front of Montmarte, the only thing Bronwen wanted to do was ride on one:)

I love the streets in Paris!  Such a photogenic city.

me, not so photogenic and apparently Alex is photophobic.


  1. What wonderful pictures. We loved the all even tho we didn't know what that one building was it was very pretty. So was the pictures of you guys. In our book all of you are photogenic but your right. Get Alex off his feet and point a camera at him and he hides. Love all the smiles from all of you. Can't wait to see more.
    Love and miss you.

  2. Beautiful! And yay for no pepperspray! Natalie still talks about our "spicy eyes" ha ha! Next time you need to visit the Sacre-Coeur, the stained glass is amazing. Looks like you guys are doing well, but I can't wait to have you closer :) Love you!
