The next morning we woke bright and early. It was going to be a busy day.
We saw this clever scooter - very cool!
This group gave Poppy some Micky Mouse ears to wear.
At this point we were very hungry and tired. As we walked to the metro we passed a closing boulangerie with some baguette sandwiches sitting on the shelf. James and Wes asked they owner if they would sell us both sandwiches for 7 euros. The sandwiches looked really unappetizing to Becca and me so in the meantime we had located a corner cafe that looked decent. But it was too late - the boys had purchased the sandwiches. We still had a yummy dinner a the cafe but the boys ate the sandwiches anyway because they were so pleased with themselves for getting such a great deal. I think one of the sandwiches was smoked salmon and the other was some type of meat that looked really yucky and questionable. But in the end - it all worked out!
We finally took the metro back to the hotel and sadly realized we only had one more day left in Paris!!!
At this point, things at home were getting a little crazy. Nothing out of the ordinary - just our usual busy lives. And our babysitter - Danielle - had already gone above and beyond what any babysitter should be asked to do! And she did an awesome job. But it was becoming clear that two weeks is too long to be gone! Our lives are too busy to leave the kids for that long. Even by the end of the first week - the older two were really struggling. They missed us and needed us to help them navigate their busy lives. We were looking forward to our last day in Paris - but we couldn't wait to get home to our kids!
