We went to...


A year ago almost to the day, we booked our trip to Europe!! We thought it would never get here! My parents and siblings with their spouses all went. We had so much fun together! Joseph and I decided to do something extra for our anniversary, so we went to Paris a few days earlier before we met up with my family in Barcelona. We finally arrived on Friday, May 22nd at about 5:00p.m. after missing our flight to Paris. We were able to get another flight out a few hours later...but were very tired already at that point. We checked into our hotel quickly and got ready for the opera. (This is something Joseph has always wanted to do)

We are at the opera seeing "Tosca". Although the entire thing was in French, we still enjoyed it. (Even with jet lag)

Inside the Opera De Bastille

Later that night...view from our hotel.

The next day we went on a "Day in Paris" tour. We were going to see the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, have lunch in the Eiffel Tower, and cruise along the Seine River. Everything was going well, until we hopped on the tour bus and realized that we weren't going to ANY of those places. What????? WE WERE ON THE WRONG BUS!!! We quickly told them to let us off and then were able to find our real group!

We met a couple from Conway who were on the same tour as us and hung out with them all day. What a small world! (That's who is taking all these pictures of us)

Notre Dame Cathedral

Later that night, we went on a "segway" tour around the city. It was soo much fun! I felt like Paul Blart on "Mall Cop". If this is something you ever get the opportunity to do- you must do it!!

A typical beverage for France. A very delicious and the most expensive espresso I have ever had. I thought I was ordering something else, but got this instead. I finished it in almost three sips. :)

Chocolate Croissant- YUM!!!

We had a great time! I wish we could have stayed a little longer, but definitely enjoyed our time that we had!
