A Week in Pictures

The time has flown by since I blogged last!  Since I have not done a great job updating day to day, I decided to update you on what we've been doing through a video of pictures.   Enjoy below!
The major highlight of this past week was having a visit from Mimi and Poppy.  My dad is a senior class sponsor, and has been leading groups of students to Europe since I was a senior in high school.  This year they were in Paris for 2.5 days.  Since they couldn't leave the group, we joined up with the group of 50 and tagged along.  It was tiring keeping up with the group, but it was worth the effort to see them!  We were rushing around on the Metro going from place to place while the group rode on their Coach.  Since we don't have our cell phones activated we would have to search the crowds of people until we spotted each other.  Talk about playing Where's Waldo!

One of the funniest events was Bobby and I exiting the wrong Metro stop.  Little did we know that this particular Metro, Abbesses, was the deepest Metro in the city.  In order to get out you had to walk up a spiral staircase.  To help you get a little taste of our experience, watch the video below and imagine you are carrying up 2 sleeping children in strollers.  
Thankfully, a family helped us carry the strollers up the stairs and we were all exhausted at the end!

We also enjoyed the luxury of eating dinner in restaurants, which we have not done much of since we've arrived.  Although it was a whirlwind of a trip, we were so happy for the time to be able to spend with them.  We were sad to see them leave!
