A Fun Day at the Grand Palais

i've been taking a break from
the blog/instagram lately.
it's nice to step away from it for a while.

i finished reading the trilogy about
josphine bonaparte.
i can't wait to take a trip out
to Malmaison thanks to
Veronique and Elizabeth 's
it will be an easy trip by train..
just not sure if i should wait and 
go in the spring when the gardens
are blooming??

here are some pictures taken
at the Grand Palais over 
Christmas break.
the kids and i walked from our
house one cold and sunny day.
for a few weeks over Christmas,
the Grand Palais hosted an indoor
amusement park..
complete with ferris wheel rising
all the way to the top of the dome.
so fun!

view from the top of the ferris wheel

another view from the top..
looking out towards place de la concorde
and the petite palais.

hannah and will rode the
crazy mouse so many times

i had a little glass of bubbly
while we watched hannah and will
ride the swings.

i took a lot of pics of the
ferris wheel.

we stayed pretty late!
and rode the ferris wheel

looking back at the grand palais

walking home towards 
les invalides

almost home.
 a great day!

and i may be the last 
to know about the new
waterlogue app. 
but wow..
so fun! 
i took this picture of
notre dame...

and voila!!

so cool!


  1. Will's face says it all. What a happy lil guy and so cute! Have fun with your new app!

  2. What a fun day. I've never been to Paris at Christmas, but would love to see all the pretty lights. Thanks for a Friday walk in my favorite city - my own trip went way too fast, it's lovely to be able to go back through your lovely photos.
    Happy Weekend!

  3. I showed my husband your new apt. photos - he was so envious of your Eiffel Tower view! I wonder why waterlogue uses brown shades instead of grays...
