Paris Trip

In September we went to Paris for a week with Jared's parents Julie and Ken Thompson.
We had an amazing time! Here are pictures of the highlights:

Outdoor Flower Market

Notre Dame

 Arc de Triomphe

 Hotel de Ville

 Eiffel Tower

Moulin Rouge

 Sacre Coeur Church

The Louvre

Paris Catacombs
(Old mines under the city where 6 million people's bones were relocated.
It goes without saying that is the creepiest place I have ever been.)

Chenonceau Castle

Chambord Castle

The Castle where Leonardo Da Vinci died
(this is how France came to have The Mona Lisa)

on the grounds they had built replicas of some of his inventions:

 Palace of Versailles

 Hall of Mirrors
