"As we were walking up the hill to The Basilica of Sacré-Cœur, we saw a group of children getting ready to release balloons in the air.  Each balloon had a note tied to it and it was precious to hear all the children saying "Au revoir!" to the balloons as they floated up into the sky."

"On one side of the Tuileries Gardens in Paris are carnival rides. For most of the day in Paris it had been rainy and cool. Thankfully by the time I stopped by the gardens the sun had come out and blue skies emerged. The pink and white of this ride against the blue sky made for an amazing sight."
