Last Day of Adventures in Paris

Our last day in Paris, we got up early enough to make it to the Louvre by 9:00. Sadly, it appeared everyone else and THEIR DOG had the same idea, and the Louvre was packed by 9. Overall it wasn't a terrible experience, but with that amount of people there is no way to capture great shots of any of the artwork. Here are some of the pictures that actually turned out.

I love the ceilings in the Louvre, they are unbelievable.

After walking around the Louvre for several hours we decided to hit the road back to Germany. We drove through the french countryside and of course had to stop and take pictures in the fields of yellow flowers.

All in all it was a great time and I am so glad that were able to visit Paris while my brother and his friend Kathleen were here. It meant a lot to them to get to see Paris and I know they had a great time. Hope you guys enjoyed my pictures from our trip!

Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and a big thanks for following along and reading my blog. It's so nice to wake up to wonderful comments in the morning! You guys truly are awesome.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Oh, P.S. I did my first day of Shred last night, walked 6 miles today.... I'm on my way to being "shredded" as Jillian Michaels puts it. (BUT now I can hardly walk, I'm SO SORE!!!) We'll see if I can make it through another twenty minute workout tonight!?! Yesterday I wanted to grab her through the TV and strangle her, only because I'm incredibly out of shape!! What I wouldn't do for some Mexican food right now ;)
