Luke had Good Friday and Easter Monday off of work, so we took advantage of the 4 day weekend and headed to Paris. Originally we had planned to take the 3 hour bullet train from Neuchatel to Paris, but when I went to buy the tickets (2 weeks in advance) everything was booked. The only trains left had several connections, would take 5+ hours and cost us $500! So we decided to drive. We left Thursday after Luke got off work and made it to Paris in about 6 hours. By the time we all got to bed, it was 3am Friday morning.
Jack is always the first one up, so at 8am he was bouncing off the walls. We dragged ourselves out of bed and headed straight for breakfast.

|If only I could have taken a video of Jack, |
the whole ride he was yelling "whee, this is fun!"
"faster Daddy, faster!"
|Still happy after 3 hours in the trailer|
|At lunch Jack was able to get out and run around|

off his helmet. Here we are in front of the Louvre
