paris with two kids + one crazy bird



paris.
a magical place.
especially when shared
with your kids 

(even when one of them actually thinks she is a bird and touches every lost feather
in every questionable puddle in the city)


our highlights:


the hôtel saint-vincent

adjoining rooms
 quiet, parisian left-bank location
honesty bar
and
perfect duvets
for
recovering from
first day
jet lag






the fête des tuileries

(the view from the top of the ferris wheel beats all)

just try and tear your kids away



the best
croque-monsieur
of all
at
a jean nicot


the louvre
on (best kept secret) friday night

open late (9:45 p.m.)
no crowds
&
good for chasing pigeons


raimo glacier

best in paris
(and we did our research!)
went there twice
in one day

need i say more?

(plus
the owner
is trés patient -
3 kids = lots of sample spoons

*runner up on the ice cream front: le bac a glaces





the ménagerie du jardin des plantes

oldest zoo in europe

so old-school
&
peaceful

one of our best days



mi-va-mi

crazy good falafel
my only regret is that i didn't get
french fries
on top

eat these on the street
while pushing
your
tired
bird



the eiffel tower
at
night

&
for those who would rather

fly

than
walk
the 700 steps

the
nearby
carousel
is a good option



the
bateaux
races

at the
jardin du luxembourg

(morocco beat china - hands down)



adding a little
piece
of
our family
to the
lock bridge
(pont des arts)

was something
i
think
the kids
will
never
forget



tacos and frozen margaritas
(and cold cokes in bottles)

at

candelaria

and
of
course....



the marché des oiseaux

for

our

little

bird

I love these photos, and the found word poetry. Posey's hair--a sight to behold!
