Pressed against the Glass

The morning started with more pastries, duh we are in Paris. Then we took our bags and went to the next hotel we would be staying in, still in Paris just kind of the other side. After we dropped of our bags we headed to the Arch De Triumph. It was pretty cool but my favorite part about it is that it is in the middle of the street and you have to go under the street to get there.

Then we started down the Champs-Elysee, which is basically the biggest shopping street ever. But more window shopping than practical shopping. But I did see plenty of things I wouldn't mind having.
Joe did actually buy something on the Champs-Elysee though, a pair of really nice Nike shoes and then his feet were a little happier for the rest of the trip because his other shoes were giving him pretty nasty blisters.
Well my favorite store was the Louis Vuitton store and I was literally pressed up against the glass at it's windows,

and why.....they had a shoe Ferris wheel!!!!!!! coolest thing ever!!!!! My new life goal is to have one of those! :)
After walking down the whole street we had some crepes and then lunch in the park in front of the Louvre. Lunch was really nice, it was perfect weather and just really nice to sit down and rest after all that walking. On our way to the Louvre after we saw the coolest kids park ever. It was like a trampoline pit, with just a bunch of tramps. It reminded me of Jump on It, but this was cooler because it was just like a regular park.
The Louvre line wasn't too bad and once inside it was actually pretty uncrowded. We got to see all the famous works that we wanted to.

The Mona Lisa was really interesting to me because everyone told me not to be disappointed in how small it was. Well I guess I was so ready for it to be tiny that it seemed pretty normal sized to me. I was able to get right up front ( not exactly against the glass) I think I would've been shot if I got that close but close enough to get a really good picture.

We stayed until the Museum closed.

I think Liz Joe and I can all agree that one of our favorite things in the museum was the air conditioning vents on the ground. :)

After the Louvre we walked around the city a little before heading back to our hotel for the night.
