This morning we rested.  After yesterday and last night, we all were com-pa-letely wiped.Out.  The whole day was more of a relaxed nature.  There is something to be said about resting on vacation.  I should try it more often.

Anyway, we spent the morning packing for GOING HOME!!!!!!  (I was excited.)  Also writing postcards and taking the final pictures of our flat.

We then gathered a picnic lunch and headed of to the Eiffel Tower one last time.  Ooooh, ’twas the most beautiful of our days here.  The sun was so sunshiny, and the flowers were so perky.  It was April in Paris.

I actually had a list of things that everyone wanted to do before we left.  It was pretty short, so not taxing at all:  see Statue of Liberty, eat one last pastry, picnic at Eiffel Tower, eat at Pizza Hut (that one was Matthew’s but after seeing the prices, it got scratched off the list).

Oh, and these baby buggies were everywhere, so I ran after this woman to get a picture.  Isn’t it ADORABLE?!

Then we prepared for the evening of our last grand adventure…La Belle et La Beta (a production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.)  It was such a fitting end.  Everything was in French, but we pretty much had the Disney songs memorized, so it wasn’t hard to follow at all.  Aaaaaaaah, it was everything a theater production in Paris, France should be.  (You can click HERE for a YouTube promo video of the actual production.)

And thus ended our wonderful vacation, our many memories and our time in Paris.

I was ready to see My Man (and the rest of our wonderful family, many of whom met us at the good ol’ Wichita airport and went out with us to Braums for a recap of the adventures).

It was great to go.  It was spectacular to come home.
