Inside Sainte Chapelle.

Bonjour!!!Today we went INSIDE Sainte Chapelle!!! -- CB

We got a late start due to some very late sleeping...first we went to Sainte-Chapelle but it was just closing for lunch, so we got on a bus to the Musée d'Orsay. When we arrived the line was VERY LONG and it was VERY COLD and windy. So we thought of the Louvre, but as we walked there we realized it was closed! Very sad start to the day! So back to Sainte-Chappelle, but we were hungry. Luckily CB spotted a sushi restuarant - perfect! A yummy way to lift our spirits. Back at Ste-Chapelle, the line wasn't too bad so in we went. Here's what we saw: thousands of stained glass windows, it was very old (almost 800 years old!), there were lots of stories in the windows of Christian religion and Jewish religion, such as Esther, but we couldn't really see the characters. We both drew some pictures til we got too cold. So then we went to the gift shop and bought a princess and a queen and a postcard. And the queen is for LS. We hope she likes her!

Then we were hungry so we got crepes - CB got lemon juice and sugar and it was delicious. SI got "creme de marron"which was interesting! Then we went shopping and bought a new coat and hat for CB. Then we went on another carousel.(Twice.) Then we got tired and came home. Now we're going to eat spaghetti for dinner and we're going to try to go to bed early so we can wake up early so we can go to the Eiffel Tower!!! or the science museum.

WE LOVE PARIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - CB and SI together

PS CB took some great photographs today but SI forgot to bring the right cable for her camera so we can't post them til we get home! (Sorry!)

PC and I thought Sainte Chapelle was one of the most beautiful sights in Paris. Those windows were amazing! Sorry I can't see the pics. AA and I are both sick with flu. Not having a fun week.
Love NB

Bonjour! Sounds like a wonderful time you are having. What a lovely idea for bébé and petite bébé to travel together. My daughter would be so jealous if she knew. Now it is time for you to leave the work email for later. Nothing is ever that urgent. Au revoir.

Hello! I'm sorry I'm not there with you enjoying the sights and tastes (yum!) of Paris. As NB said, I've been in bed with the flu for the last couple of days, so it's probably a good thing I didn't come along, 'cause that REALLY wouldn't have been fun. You'll have to let me know all about the Paris fashions--if you can, take some pics of what you see that you really like. Lots of love xoxo AA

If you have time to return, Musee D'Orsay is worth it. Honestly, I think the Louvre is overrated. D'Orsay is light and beautiful and great art! Just my 2 cents.

Glad you're having such a bon temps!

Missing you!
Love,
AuntJ
