Beyond the 30° C weather and the lack of air conditioning, Paris was beautiful and amazing! Here's a sampling of what we did:

Climbed the Eiffel Tower. Call us crazy, but we took the stairs. 704 stairs up to the 2nd observation desk. Allison LOVED riding on daddy's shoulder's all the way up.

Took a Shetland Pony ride in the Jardin du Luxembourg. Its a beautiful garden with lots of fun activities for kids. Allison wasn't too sure about touching the horses at first, let along riding one... but she warmed up and didn't want to leave when we were done.
Toured the Catacombs. They were pretty cool. Napoleon, who ordered the arrangment of the bones along the walls, must have had some serious OCD.

Visited Notre Dame. We wanted to climb the North Tower, but we had the stroller with us so they wouldn't let us (which they didn't have posted and didn't bother telling us until we'd stood in line for 45 minutes). It was still beautiful inside.

Its was a pretty cool visit to Paris, but we are so happy to be home now.
