Our Saturday morning in Paris, we went to the Marché Président Wilson. Or, easier for some of us to say, the President Wilson Market. ; )
This open-air market is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and found on Ave du Président Wilson (hence the name). I was seriously blown away by this place and so impressed. You’ll find an incredible selection of food – QUALITY food, and many different types – fish, meats, cheese, pasta, bread, sweets! Shall I even continue? Because they also have FLOWERS!
This is the type of activity I love doing in a city like Paris – really taking in a local experience. I would highly recommend a trip to this market to just about anyone. Keep reading for a whopper of a post!

On our second day in Paris, we explored an area we’d never been before. The Montmartre neighborhood is considered very “old Paris” and was home to many of the great writers and artists way back when – think Hemingway, Picasso, and van Gogh, among others. It sits on a hill in the 18th arrondissement of Paris and features the Sacre-Coeur Basilica at the very top. I was so excited to see it all!

Bonjour! It’s a special day for us mamas. I’m sort of considering this Mother’s Day my first “official” one, as Adeline was still so tiny last year and I was still in a total daze from having a baby. ; )
I was pretty excited when I realized we’d be in Paris on this day. Never in a million years did I think I’d spend a Mother’s Day with a baby of my own in such an incredible city.

Thursday happened to be a national holiday here in France, so everyone was out and about enjoying the gorgeous weather. It was so neat to experience the city on a holiday like that, to see Parisians off work or out of school for the day. We headed over to Rue Cler again to pick out some food for a picnic and I snapped some photos along the way…

We arrived in Paris yesterday via the ‘Chunnel’, or the high speed train that goes under the English Channel. I think it’s so neat to travel by train and it was just so wild to see Adeline sitting there in her car seat, headed to Paris! It was (obviously) her first train ride and she did pretty darn well.

Our final day in London included some time in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as one more walk through Notting Hill. We were so lucky with the weather – it was just so GORGEOUS. Being that it’s springtime, things are so lush and green, or in beautiful bloom.

Yesterday, we got all touristy and hit up the London Eye and Big Ben. Steve and I had actually been to both before, but we wanted to take Adeline and experience it with her…
