New Years Eve in Paris, France

Despite being rained on for most of the time, we had a great time in Paris. {I came 10 years ago, and had a negative experience, so it was nice to have a great time this time around.} We were in Paris from Dec. 30 - Jan 1. Matt and I decided to take the kids to Disneyland Paris on the first day while my parents and brother went to the Louver. We knew they wouldn't last in that museum, so we played it safe and had a great time at Disney. Sometimes we feel like we are dragging the kids everywhere, so it was nice to go somewhere they loved. Our favorite ride is still Pirates of the Caribbean. We rode that one twice. We really didn't have to wait too long on any ride. On the second day we went to Notre Dame Cathedral and really enjoyed the awe and wonder of this gothic building. Then we headed over to the Eiffel Tower so we could enjoy it in the day and night. G really wanted a picture of her and I in our berets in front of the Eiffel tower. She told me she would treasure it "forever". Love that girl... Next we drove down the main street of Paris towards the Arch de Triumph. There is a round-a-bout circling the arch, so we giggled as we drove around it about 4 times. I even stood out of the sun roof to get a shot of it! Of course we enjoyed some crepes along the way too.

2011 has been a great year! Here's to 2012! Happy New Year!!
