Kids in Paris

You don't need to guess what 3 girls ages 4, 5, and 6 wanted to do in Paris, do you? Go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, of course! We tried to book tickets online, but found they were all sold out. Instead we decided to take Rick Steves' advice and get there first thing in the morning. Worked like a charm! There was a small line and we were through it in no time.

We were sadden to see that the tip top was closed that day. But it's hard to be sad standing in front of the Eiffel Tower so up we went to the 2nd floor. Pictures were taken, views were enjoyed. See for yourself ~

Given all the terrorist warnings and closings around Europe it was lucky that the tower was even open. Glad you guys got to go up. I have been twice, but can't wait to take my boys.

Great shots of the tower, especially that shadow, and thanks for the advice about an early morning visit.
