So we told the kids, we'll come back in another season when there are less tourists and we started to go around to take good pictures of the tower. That's when we saw a place where the line was small to go up the second floor by the stairs. Stairs? Why not ... So we bought our tickets (yes you actually pay to torture yourself )
So here we are at the beginning of the stairs:
But you may wonder how in the world do you climb 700 (yes, you read well) stairs with a toddler.
But we did it !!! The proof is here: 700 steps ....
Here are my babies posing for some pictures:
The view is amazing:
On our way to the top, Emma got scared by that guy !!!
After such a big effort, we decided it was time to have picnic but a picnic with a view:
We found a nice bunch in front of the tower:
After lunch, Steb had a playdate with his friends (see the bird on the right? ):
Pierre was ready to listen to the commentary (mine was not working):
Someone took a 5 Euros nap
I won't bored you with all the pictures I took during this cruise ... (I know you are very grateful right now !!! lol)
Emma visited Paris with her flip flop shoes ( I don't know how she does that ... )
The one hour long cruise was a little too long for Emma and she was happy to relax on the ground after that.
She also really wanted to see that guy, who plays the statue, bend to say thank you ... (give him money and he will bend for you I don't know how he doesn't die in his suit with the high temperature ... )
After that, we took a small walk in the parisian streets.
Funny fact: Pierre found his twin in a subway ad
You may think Steb was cooperative for my pictures but he was his old self most of the time as these photos will prove you .
Stay tuned for part 2 (if you are not too tired of looking at my pics already )
