Finally, some pictures from France...

Yes, I am finally posting some pictures of Natalie's trip. I'm not going to lie though my girl took over 347 pictures and I'm posting just a few.  It is just so much work to try and load more than just a few, so I picked my favorites.

 The first one is taken at a water fall at the base of the Pyrenees Mountains.

 The others were all taken in Paris.

 Of course, I couldn't resist the Eiffel Tower. I have to tell you that the day she visited the Eiffel Tower she Face Timed us.  It was about 6 am our time and noon Paris time. I heard the buzzing of the I-pad in the family room, Dave said "you better go and get that because you know it is probably Natalie." So half awake I stumbled to the I-pad and answered.  She said "Mom, I want to show you something." I expected it to be some little trinket she bought or some delicious dessert. She loved sharing pictures of those.

 I was not prepared to see the Eiffel Tower and it took my breath away.

 I know that sounds corny because I wasn't there or anything, but I have to tell you it was amazing just seeing it live on my I-pad.  I remember I just said to Natalie over and over again "wow, that is really cool."

  I also love the pictures of the lock the girls put on the bridge.  Tradition goes that if you hang a lock on the bridge going over the river Seine that your love will last forever.  Of course, it is not limited to romantic love but also friendship. So the girls bought a lock and put both their names on it then together they locked it on the bridge.   As tradition requires ,they threw the keys into the river Seine.  Now Chloe and Natalie's friendship will last forever.  :)

I definitely want to do this one day.  I think it is one of neatest ideas.  I guess there are places all around the world where they do this lock tradition on bridges.

Enjoy the pictures, I will be posting soon with a catch up.  There is a lot going on in these here parts.

Until then:

One of my favorites of the 347. LOL

Those keys are now forever at the bottom of the Seine.

What an awesome trip! How cool to be woken up with a chat from the Eiffel Tower. Not many people can say that has happened to them!!

I hope you all can go sometime :)
