Day 2 - Notre Dame & Sainte Chapelle

We visited Notre Dame while they were having mass.

We ate at this restaurant before we while we waited for the concert at Sainte Chapelle to start.

The famous stained glass windows

Of course, there was some renovations going on.

The violinist - I asked if I could have my picture taken with him. He brushed his hair back and said "I need to fix my hairs."

The Metro.

Ah huh....yes,yes...

This isn't the greatest picture, but it's a great memory! It's of Nina while we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower. She's reading a panel written in French. Nina had told me about a movie where a guy is reading through a contract and while he's reading he says, "Ah huh...yes, yes....I understand some of these words." Well, all through our vacationing we'd come across information panels written in French. I figured if I could pick out enough words that I recognized, I'd be able to get a good idea of what was being said. I never could pick out enough words to make sense of anything! So, the running joke during our vacation was to say, "Ah huh....yes, yes....I understand some of these words." It never got old either.

To the Eiffel Tower!

Grandma outside the Musee D'Orsay
We planned on eating at the museum, but the line just to get in was way too long. We were hungry Barkers, so we just ate at a little cafe down the street. Then we walked to the Eiffel Tower.

Looking up while we waited for the elevator.

We were crammed in the elevator with a bunch of silly/fun-loving German students.

Little bitty soccer players.
