The Simone Family's European Vacation

21 June 2017

This was the last night in Paris. Still have to post pictures of Versailles earlier that day but this last night was really fun. We had a picnic on the grounds of the Eiffel Tower with delicious wines, breads, meats and cheeses from the different shops throughout the city. The kids loved every minute of it.

Touring Paris. Yes we succumbed and took a picture in front of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. Our highlight was Notre Dame. The mass there is beautiful. However what took our breath away on an unexpected tour was Saint Chappelle. The stained glass is unlike anything we have ever seen. It is simple a museum now but was originally built to house the crown of thorns that were worn by Jesus.
