πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Bonjour Paris! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

We woke up pretty early to get a start on our long day of travel. We had a bit of logistical juggling due to Oxford closing down their main train station while we were there (how dare they!) - but made it back to London with plenty of time to catch our scheduled departure for Paris. The boys are becoming pros at changing platforms and reading the monitors to figure out where to go.

While back in London, we sneaked over to King’s Cross to check out Platform 9 3/4, then found a tremendously long line that we weren't even tempted to wait in. πŸ˜³

Our apartment in Paris is simple but so perfect for us. We grabbed a delicious dinner around the corner from our flat, went grocery shopping alongside the locals πŸ˜‰ and then snuck in a cup of gelato for dessert. The boys are impressed at how alive our neighborhood is, so late at night. ❤️

The crazy long line to take a picture at Platform 9 3/4! πŸ˜©
Jon snagged this pic of a random kid! 

Grumpy kid pre-dinner. :)

Looking out from our balcony in Paris! 

Planes flying over the Seine filled the sky in a flag of color. πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

Yes, we were *those* Americans trying to interpret laundry detergent at the market. πŸ€£

Our apartment for the week! 

Post-dinner, no longer grumpy. ;-)
