Shushh - what a fantastic first day (weather aside). I cannot wait to go to the Opera Garnier and your photos make me even more excited to go.

I love your positive attitude with dealing with the rain. Let's face it, the show must go on and I love that Jonah seems to have been a total trooper right until the end.

The eggs and lentils I'm not quite on board with but everything else looks awesome.

Shush, we stayed in Rue de Rivoli opposite Tuileries. My girls had so much fun in the gardens. Loved the Versailles updated and the first day out. When you crash in the afternoons you just crash. Hope you all start sleeping a little longer soon.

Good luck with a new charger. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Lovely photo's. Hope you find a new charger. Did you take a stroller? I am dreaming of a stroller free holiday, but it will mean I will have to carry my camera bag though.

Loving the live posting! Have just caught up. I love the Christmas markets!

I had a chuckle at the 1am wake up then the "is it morning yet mums" throughout the night.

Looks like you are having a wonderful time. Hope you find a new charger!

Is it morning yet?

IS IT MORNING YET?

IS IT MORNING YET?




g I wonder if that is more annoying than "Are we there yet"?




Versailles looks amazing. Pity about your charger. Hope you get something....if not, we'll live...not vicariously through your blog....but we'll live.

Loving your blog, shushh! I sympathize re the elevator in your Partment, the smallest one we've ever squeezed into was also in Paris. I think you're right and Parisians are just a very skinny race

Looking forward to the next installment

Arghh...I can't multi quote on the silly app and I'm too tired to open the Internet browser. Trying to blog on the iPad nearly killed me. if I can't get a charger for my notebook don't think I'll be repeating the effort....

I'm sorry I'm not relying individually. Our days have been full and I've come home exhausted each day! Firstly thank you all for your kind words. Taking photos with 3 children in tow is never easy. The cold, and fear of being pick pocketed doesn't help!

Missing the banter on the DIS but too tired to concentrate! Got to do some laundry now...
Louvre and more tomorrow!

What a wonderful Sunday in Paris. Glad the sleeping is getting easier. You look like you are having a wonderful time.

Just catching up on your latest blog. Sounds like a great church day....I love both Notre Dame and Sacre Couer and you got beautiful shots!!

But what is that deliciously looking tower of indulgence the kids are enjoying???

Thank you for the compliments! I have to say that it is so difficult taking photos with kids, plus it is either raining or freezing. or so dark inside. Add to that my paranoia of getting pick pocketed means a constantly high ISO so I don't have to keep adjusting and can take speedy shots. none of these help with quality!

I forgot to mention in my blog that the sun was continuing to rise during the service and it was amazing watching the stained glass windows transforming into bursts of colour. I loved the quirky details and clever design of the cathedral.

As for the ice cream, they're from Berthillons. Absolutely delicious. Very intense flavours. Darn the iPad, couldn't caption my photos!

I have vague thoughts of Europe in 2014 or 15....I'll be knocking on your door for where to get one of those.

Your pics are capturing Paris wonderfully -even if you are finding it a bit of a juggle to take them. I am impressed with the children's stamina-you are covering so much each day. You are also bringing back wonderful memories for me of December in Paris when DD was almost 6-including her experiencing her first snowfall outside Sacre Coeur.
