Hey!   I am here again!  ( Venice! 8 yo)

Guess what?   I saw the Eiffel tower!!!

And to get to the Eiffel Tower we have to walk ALOT!

Can you spot the Eiffel Tower?

Can you spot the Eiffel Tower?

But I did not go to the bottom of it. : (

I actually saw it at the name of this post!   ( Centre Georges Pompidou museum )

And this is how it starts!

S.W.M.B.O. :     Venice we are going to the Georges Pompidou museum!

Venice :     What type of art is it?

S.W.M.B.O. :   Modern.

–  Ok.    But how long will it take us to get there? I asked.

–  Maybe 45 minutes or an hour. She Replied.

–  Fine!  Venice said.

So Paris , Lastborn , Onlyboy , Fahbio, S.W.M.B.O. and I went to go to the Centre Georges Pompidou.   ( Firstborn was WAY too tired to go! )

 

Doesn't it look like Teletubby land?

Doesn’t it look like Teletubby land?

And so we went – me as ALWAYS hungry, Lastborn with her legs tired and Paris with her IPOD.  We walked and got some food. We went to Les Halles (Lay Hal) and it used to be a huge old market of Paris.

But now it is under construction.  We had a picnic there.

Lastborn as she does it EVERY SINGLE DAY was scaring the pigeons.

There was a large church that Lastborn wanted to go into, but it was locked.  There was a park that was SUPREMELY tempting!  Paris, Onlyboy and I went to find the entrance to the park.  We found AN entrance but it was locked up.  So we went to ANOTHER one and of course it was locked.   So we looked and looked and looked and found that the entrance is on the OTHER side of the Park.  We went there and it leads to the little kids’ park.  So we thought we might as well just check it out!   So we did and there was a gate to the bigger kids’ park and of course THAT was locked as well.  Because they aren’t quite done construction.  So it’s only open on Saturdays from 10 am – 1 pm.

Super cool elevator at the museum

Super cool escalator at the museum

Now I was going to tell you about the museum but I am tired of writing.  The art was nice.  They have a lot of Kadinsky paintings.  The escalator was excellent.  And outside there was a lady making ENORMOUS soap bubbles. You should go there.
