It's a "What's Up Wednesday" from Paris, France, where we're currently on vacation!!! Whoooo hoooo!!! Unlike my normal "What's Up Wednesday" posts, this won't be a summary of our month, but it will give you a good idea of what we've been up to for the past few days at least.
What I'm loving... I'm loving how much French Sam and Rachel are speaking and how Parisians are responding to it. We actually have entire conversations in French and it's so fun to know we can navigate in another language! Also, Sam is figuring out the metro (subway) for us and I love seeing his independence blossom. I also love how excited Rachel was when she saw the Eiffel Tower for the first time. She was literally laughing with joy and it was amazing!!!
I also listened in as a tour guide was giving his spiel and the fountains below are called Wallace Fountains. They provide free, clean, drinking water everywhere in Paris. We filled our water bottles a few times at this one. I love that there are drinking fountains throughout Paris and I hope we find more of them!
What I'm looking forward to next month... A few days of rest and relaxation, some biking, a special tea time, and a visit to the home of a favourite childhood toy! Yes, our vacation continues and these are all hints of things and experiences to come :)
What else is new... Everything! Actually, navigating Europe with kids is pretty new to me. I was able to travel here a few times in my 20s and 30s but I've never traveled as a family before and it's a different style of traveling. In some ways, it's even more fun!!!
So that gives you a quick taste of our vacation thus far. I'll try and pop in with another post in the next day or so, but it will depend on how full our next couple of days are. I hope you all have a great Wednesday. Our plan for today is to visit a museum and eat some more French food. It's going to be a great day!
