Paris with A, K, and K

We had such a wonderful time visiting with our son, his beautiful wife and daughter. We spent the first 3 days in Paris. As I have said before, I just love Paris. Lots of French people are not crazy about Paris, but those are the ones who don't live there. The Parisians love Paris.
After we met up, we ate at a fun outdoor cafe. Then we took a bus tour. We could get off wherever we wanted to and then get back on.

Here is the famous and beautiful Notre Dame. I looked for the hunchback, but he was nowhere to be found. There was, however, a beautiful service going on with 2 great singers.

I took lots of pictures of the beautiful buildings, monuments, bridges, etc. The Seine runs through Paris and it is the most useful of all the French rivers because it is slow and deep and ocean going vessels can go all the way to Paris, which makes Paris the third largest port in France.

The Louvre is humongous. It is also very beautiful.

There were tons of people cooling off their feet in the pools and fountains.

The Mona Lisa is surprisingly a very small painting. I was glad to see her for the 2nd time.

One of the days we went to Disney Paris. It was a lot of fun. It is much smaller than Disneyland, but we really enjoyed our day there.

The only disappointing ride for me was Indiana Jones because it turned out to be just a roller coaster and I don't really love being jostled about anymore.

I loved Alice in Wonderland.

One of my favorites is always It's A Small World.

K was the cutest mouse of all.

What a fun trip! I loved Paris, but it was a bit anticlimactic after we had seen all the beautiful countryside and all the cute little towns. Isn't the Louvre gorgeous?
