A Day in Photos- Paris in December

Sacre Coeur

After revisiting the Christmas I spent in Paris with my parents on my blog yesterday about Auvers-Sur-Oise I had to go back and see what other treasured photos I have from that trip. Other than the day trip and being in Paris with my parents (our only time in Paris together) I had fun showing them some of my favorite spots around town. In addition to the Jardin du Luxembourg I was extremely found of Montmontre and the Sacre Coeur at the time. Being their tour guide and translator was fun too! My mom learned French as a kid and still remembered a little bit, and as for my dad, it was just fun to hear him say in the morning ‘Bonjour.. je voudrais un pain au chocolat’ (Hello, I would like a chocolate sweet roll pastry)… hehehe…

Below are some photos from that trip.

    • Valerie, I find travelling so liberating.. there is so much to do, see and experience. Travelling as a mom has added yet another element to travelling for me. I love to show my kids mom’s favorite places and I love seeing how much they too love to travel.

      Start saving for that family vacation somewhere great!!

      • We are!! We’ve been saving weekly since February. We have no idea where we’re going to go, but it will be our first BIG family vacation that doesn’t include visiting out-of-state relatives! 😉
