France_5 Eiffel Tower

One of the coolest things about traveling with your kids is exposing them to new things. Nola can point out the Eiffel Tower whenever we see photos or statues of the monument and recall the day we saw it in real life! The day we went up the Eiffel Tower we were lucky and didn’t have to wait very long in the line (I’ve read horror stories, so my advice is get there early). But after that the whole experience went downhill from there. Granted we were with a 3 and 1 year old at the time and with this being by far the hardest experience the entire trip I also look at it as a victory! But man, if we are being real here sometimes traveling with kids is no joke and it’s freak’n hard! What happened was we had our double stroller because being out and about all day that is our lifeline with having our little ones…so yes we needed it and couldn’t go without. They allow you to take the stroller up the Eiffel Tower, but the caveat is they don’t want you to park it anywhere and it was too wide to fit in the aisles. So here we are trying to carry a folded double stroller, while the other is juggling both kids. And should I mention we didn’t bring a carrier that day!?! Jonas was also so crabby and come to find out he had pooped and clearly was just uncomfortable. I think there was a moment where CJ and I looked at each other and telepathically were saying to each other ‘wtf are we doing?’. But we prevailed guys and by the time we took the elevator down we were all calmed down and possibly having shifty eyes, hoping no one pinned as the smelly poopy culprits. We were the only one with the baby…
it was pretty obvious.

Here’s some photos of the day if you care to see. The Eiffel Tower lives up to it’s hype guys and I’m pretty happy I got to see it with my favorite people, even with a crabby baby and a ‘huge in the way double stroller’.
