Paris and London: final days

Sloane is cute.

Atlanta airport. Lance and Sloane were both totally sick on the flight home from Heathrow. Sloane threw-up on both Lance and Grace, more on Grace. She threw-up over Grace's shoulder onto her seat, and when Grace sat back in her chair she got it all over her back. She threw-up down Lance's chest mid-flight. He had no other clothes, so he just wore these dirty ones the whole time. He is even sleeping in them in this picture. 
Poor baby Sloane.

Sloane didn't really notice the planes.
On the Heathrow Connect with Grandma Crisler.
Catching our last cab ride. 
We made a stop at Sloane Street. This is London's high fashion district. Harrods in also near by. 

On the tube home for the last time. 

Kensington Palace. This is the King's hall, near his painting room. 
Princess Diana's former bedroom. 
A bus.
You had wait in line for about an hour to get into this store at Selfridges on Oxford Street. 
Sunny London. 
Sloane's seat on the Eurostar. 
She likes the bullet-train. 
last happy morning in gay Paris. 
Still so sleepy, and a little sick. 
We went to Le Marais.
Got food at a Falafel joint down in the Jewish section of Le Marais.

Good Jewish/French eats. Frekken good. You should go. 
Look at Sloane and you can see just how good the food was. Her cheeks are stuffed.

Le Marais is definitely worth a stop. Cool shops and streets. 
Lots of shops like this. 
And shops like this.
Along the Rue de Rivoli. This is a good shopping district. 

Sloane was too sick to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, so we just got some pictures. It was way too cold that day, too. You should go to Paris in May or June, probably much more comfortable. 
Grace wanted to check out the Red Light District and the Molin Rouge. This is the subway stop, if you're interested. 

It is much more exciting on the inside, I'm sure. 
This guy was sitting on some street. 
Paris from Sacre Coeur in Montmartre. 

Pickpockets are running a new scam on this hill where they put a little piece of thread on our wrist, then ask you to pay for it while they empty your pockets.  
On the road to Bussy-Sainte-Georges.
Sick of museums. More pictures from the Louvre. 

Sloane and the Sphinx. 
Venus de milo.

Your trip looks like it was so fun, except for the being sick part on the way home. Sounds so sad! Chicago or LA, totally different locations. Congrats. At least you guys have a choice :) We (Kristen & Maggie) are happy about San Diego, I think Ryan is into it too. We're thankful we got in somewhere! Come to LA!
