Paris does Monuments

God has given man incredible engineering skills...dang !

:: Arc de Triomphe ::                                   :: Mr. Eiffel's Tower ::

284 steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe - dizzy anyone?

'The Iron Lady' from AFAR...
(taken from atop the Arc de Triomphe)

And 'La Dame de Fer' UP CLOSE !

if you raise your eyebrows and open your mouth, it's more fun

 347 steps

 674 steps + elevator ride shouldn't have. really.

la ville d'amour

city of love

with limited computer and internet access,
i just wanted to take a quick moment to say bonjour to all our faithful blog followers

tonio, chelsey, sebastien and i are taking in all we can of PARIS !

(photo by someone else... just a sneak peak - more to come later)

eating snails (which were pretty good actually), walking in the magical rain at night, ascending the eiffel tower and the arc de triomphe, visiting the sacré couer, notre dame, the outside of the louvre and the opéra, all the quaint streets...

it's magical - disneyland on steroids !

we are so blessed and thankful for this opportunity to visit seb and be here

so thankful
