Wow! We had an amazing week in Paris and I had a fantastic birthday there. It was so awesome to catch up with our mates there and just hang out in the same place for a week!

When it comes to The Louvre - I'm more impressed by the shear size ...
... dog trying to take a selfie, so i offered for Gary to take their photo for them. We chatted briefly with them and found out they were from San Fransisco and this was their 3rd trip too Paris. We loved the way they were dressed and their cute puppy. ( I think i am missing my grand dogs :-))
Back on the metro to head home, but first we needed to get some dinner, so stopped at the supermarket as we exited ...
