Paris in the Springtime

When Nathan was only four months old we took our first family vacation to Paris.  We rode a train for three hours and had no idea what to expect traveling with a baby, especially to such a big city.

It ended up being an amazing trip.  The weather was beautiful and Nathan was such a trooper.  This would be the first of many wild adventures.

This past March, with Noah being only two months old we decided to give Paris another go.  Not only would we be traveling with a much smaller baby, we would also have a toddler in tow.

Luckily, Paris is an amazing city in the Spring.  Summer can be cold and winter is typically rainy; but Spring is when it truly shines.

We spent a lot of time indoors, but we did enjoy nice views of the Seine.

A nice walk down Rue de Rivoli.  Nathan's first brunch at Angelina's where we ate delicious warm pastries and bread while we enjoyed a nice cup of their famous hot chocolate.

There were views of the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Place de la Concorde.

Like all of our trips to Paris it was magical and the kids had a great time.  This is definitely our favorite place to spend a Spring vacation, and the perfect place to enjoy as a family.

You're almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower! I always thought of you as shorter. Hmmm?

We have enjoyed some lovely family holidays over the years in Paris, it is fun as the children grow up to be able to look back as a family on the holidays you have enjoyed together.
We met our daughters for a family holiday at Christmas somewhere we have been going with them for thirty years, that was fun!
