Tuesday, June 29  afternoon at the Eiffel Tower

The most exciting thing of the entire day was the Eiffel Tower.  We had to wait in line to go up but wow was it amazing.  One of the best things I have ever experienced.  I loved it.   The day was clear so we could see for miles and the actual structure of the tower is amazing.  That is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life.  See the pictures I have uploaded of the views.

After spending most of the afternoon at the Eiffel Tower we headed to the neighborhood where we were going to have dinner, but our trip would not be complete without just one more mishap.  We were riding the Metro and we all knew what stop   we had to get off at but while we were getting off the subway's doors closed and five in our group were stranded on the train.  My Sam was one of them but no worry they went to the next stop and got off there where we all gathered together again with only a few minutes delay and of course Sam was never worried, that's my calm, cool, and collected kid.

Finally we ended out day with a river Seine cruise.  We left the dock about 9:30 and the cruise lasted about an hour.  The absolute high light was the Eiffel Tower.   Every hour on the hour the Eiffel Tower's lights twinkle and we got to see it we also had amazing views of the lit up tower and it was beyond  beautiful.  I got some wonderful pictures of the lit up tower and again it is a memory I will take with me forever. 

Now our trip is complete and tomorrow we head for home.  We are excited to see everyone at home but sad to be leaving Europe.  It was truly an experience of a lifetime and I loved everything we saw and did.

So for now until I have some time to upload more pictures luv to all, Ann, Sam, and Danielle.

We were still able to enjoy the Eiffel Tower during the day and return at night. The view of the city from the second floor was breathing and the view from the top is amazing.
