Today was our last day of the whole trip!!! It has gone by really fast and we are all sad to go home. First, we went to a little art museum that was in the painter's old house. It was nice finally to go to a not crowded museum!!! Then, we visited two old churches and walked around Luxemburg Gardens. We ate dinner at an Italian restraunt, the food was really good. It was a fun last day!!!
First, my family took a boat tour on the Seine. It was fun, but I wish it hadnt been raining! We also visited the Eiffel Tower. My dad, brother, and I climbed to the first stage, about 280 steps while my mom and sister played at the playground. Then, my brother and I went to the second stage, about 600 steps. So I climbed 1,200 steps yesterday!!! After dinner we visited our friends who live in the US, but are also here on vacation. I was tired at the end of the day!!! This is a picture of me and Charles on the first stage of the Eiffel Tower after climbing to the second stage.

Today we went to to the Louvre. There was about 1,000 people in the room with the Mona Lisa. The whole museum was sooo crowed it was impossible to walk around but I still had some fun. Then we went to the Tuilleries Gardens, outside of the Louvre. We saw a carnival there too. We also went out to dinner at a little cafè. It was a fun day.

First we went to church at Notre Dame, the organ was so beautiful. Then we went to Saint Chapelle which is a very old building with stain glass windows. They looked pretty in the sunshine. We also went to Museum D'Orsay which is an art mueseum. After dinner, we went out for a walk and got ice cream.

Today was our first day in Paris. We went to lunch at a cafe and I got the biggest hot dog ever. Then, we walked around Notre Dame. It had beautiful stain glass windows. Next, we walked around Isle de Cite which is a island in the middle of the Seine River. It was fun. This is a picture of us in the cafe.
