Cadieus @ Paris

We did A LOT of Paris sightseeing while Sandra and Ian were visiting.

From left to right: I. Cadieu, S. Cadieu & C. Cadieu.

Here are some highlights….

1) We walked along the Champs-Élysées and saw the Arc de Triomphe (although the top was closed).

2) Visited the Eiffel Tower.

We enjoy a picnic before going up.

From the tower you have a great view of Parc du Champ de Mars and the Ecole Militaire.

3) Climbed up Sacré-Cœur.

This basilica was completed in 1914.

4) We spent a few hours in the Les Invalides Complex, where we saw Napoleon’s tomb and the Army Museum.

And finally, before the family visit concludes, Sandra helps Charles finish his homework!:
