trip to Paris

Here we are off to Canada via Paris.

Mikaylah and Jayson weigh in at the airport in Niamey

Here we are on the plane to Paris. Since we had an eight hour lay-over in Paris, we told Mikaylah we would go see the Eiffel Tower.

Mikaylah and Jayson both loved the moving sidewalks. By the time we got out of the airport and on the the train we figured we would have 15-20 minutes at the Eiffel tower before we had to take the train back to the airport to catch our flight to Toronto.

Jayson enjoyed the train ride.

Jayson loved traveling with Sharlene. We thought we were getting off the train at the Eiffel Tower, but when we came up above ground we were three kilometers away from the tower and right outside the Cathedral Notre Dame.

Jayson and Mikaylah posing in front of Notre Dame.  We didn't have time or money to get back on the train and go all the way to the tower...
Here it is, the Eiffel tower... three km away!!!  Can you see it on the horizon?  Actually I think we adults were more disappointed than the kids were!

On our plane to Toronto we got put up in the bubble. Mikaylah got a window seat. She was amazed how the clouds seemed to turn into mist as we flew threw them.

Mikaylah standing in front of our plane to Toronto, notice the bubble? That's where our seats were, up the staircase! It was so fun to see everything through their eyes.!
The cousins were at the airport to meet us!  We have been having a great time here in Canada!
