Sunday in Paris – The Afternoon

We pushed ourselves and our daughter pretty hard today. We were faced with the possibility of this being the only sunny/clear/pleasant day during our week in Paris. So, naturally we wanted to see the outdoor stuff and ride up to the top of the Eiffel Tower (and see the city […]
