That turned into a two hour nap and woke up around 8:15 and by the time we left to go get dinner it was 8:45 so we walked around to find places open but all of the kitchens were closed ...

The funny thing is we had seen half of the monuments in real life on our journey across the continent, so it was interesting to see them depicted at the park! Aiden especially loved the Eiffel Tower as we had decided not to visit Paris on the trip and it was ...
