Paris Part 1

It was such a fun time to be in Paris because the Euro Cup was going on! Check out the soccer ball they put on the Eiffel Tower for it. Also, they had a big screen set up right under the Eiffel Tower showing all of the games. We stopped by to see France play Iceland there one night (but left after seriously 10 minutes because it was too crazy to be there with a baby)!


I'm scared of heights, but Dallin really wanted to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower so he convinced me. I had already done this once before and remembered how high up it was so I was nervous. We went and dragged our huge stroller all the way to the top somehow. There was a woman at the top with my same stroller and so we bonded over how we were crazy for bringing them up.


This is where they showed the games each night, you can see the big screen below.


I love how beautiful Paris is - all of the buildings are the same style which is so charming.


We hung out the Tuileries garden for a bit. Even on a rainy day, I agree that Paris is always a good idea!


We walked by Pont Alexandre III bridge and down many gorgeous streets on our way to see the Arc de Triomphe.


This was one of the streets - I love how most of the balconies in Paris are decorated with pretty flower pots!




So charming:)



Walking along the Champs-Élysées was fun because there are so many high-end shops to peak in. Of course I had to take a look inside of Baby Dior! I loved all of the cute little girl outfits...if only they weren't $400 each!


After being in Europe, I've discovered that Laduree stores are my favorite. The flagship Laduree store in Paris is so adorable! We had to grab some macaroons - you can't eat just one :)


After looking at the shops, we ended at the Arc de Triomphe.


Another day, we went to the Louvre museum. It's so big, you could probably spend a week here trying to see everything. This room was my favorite - it reminded me of the gold room in the Paris opera house.






We also went to the Museum d'Orsay. There was a huge line but we got to cut it because we had a stroller. I'm not sure why, but a guy came up to us and let us in right away so we didn't question it :)



We also saw the Notre Dame Cathedral...




and more balconies with cute flower pots...


and took a little boat ride on the Seine river...



and saw Luxembourg Palace!


Kids rent these little wooden sail boats...


...and use a stick to play with them in this pond. It was really cute!


We ended the day by seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle at sunset. It's so magical and one of my favorite things to see in Paris!
