    I think these are the best photos yet. Natalie won’t hesitate to return again. The expressive photos of her are priceless.

    Love these of Natalie! You and Bernie rolled out the red carpet! You two sell the city of Paris. Thank you for sharing!

    Natalie sure adds an extra spark of fun to your time in Paris. We’re so glad that the weather has improved for her. The photographs continue to be marvelous.

    Oh, how I remember the frustration of trying to blog with the blinking internet. (Pun intended there) Thanks for following through. What a marvelous day, and Natalie is so cute with you two. I love the pictures from the tower; everything was so clear that day. Your photographers did a great job of keeping the horizon straight; something many people don’t do—just a little pet peeve of this photographer. Here’s hoping the weather behaves and the days are just as nice for the rest of Natalie’s visit.

    A great day and it shows. I’ll quote you to show how it came across- ‘It was a beautiful day and breathtaking photographs from all of us.’ To top it off you had a tower of macarons to pick from. I noticed a smaller version of the Statue of Liberty that I don’t think I remember from before. Maybe you can arrange a scholarship for both Izzy and Natalie to travel with you each year. Both are great fun.

    Despite all your technical difficulties, the joy of being with Natalie, in Paris, shines through. I hope you continue to be blessed with good weather and meaningful experiences for the three of you, as Natalie gets to know Paris.

    What a treat to get to show your daughter the city you love so much. I’m glad it’s cooler for her visit.

    A what a lovely collection of photos! Do not apologize! The telephoto pics from the Eiffel Tower are wonderful. So glad the weather has moderated for you, even with out the Bilbro cooling effect that usually works. 😉 so glad Natalie is having a great time with such perfect tour guides.

    Great photos! I especially liked the “1,000€ purse” photo. Bernie’s look of astonishment and Your look of satisfied determination were priceless.

    Yea! to you for posting everything you did for us to enjoy. I would stay in Paris just to eat the desserts. They are truly a work of art.

    Well done Linda on posting this marvellous account and equally marvellous photos. Love the header photo and agree with David S’s comment about the 1000 euro purse one — a perfect caption to go with both of your expressions 🙂

    Beautiful people, beautiful photos, beautiful city and together time! The older I get the more I realise the most precious gift our adult children can give us is the gift of their time. Thrilled for you all and agree with Natalie’s reaction to the stinky pissoir!

    Cheers and hugs across the Channel. Looking forward to the next installment of L&B&N&Paris!

    Linda, Bernie, and Natalie — I was right there with you!! Recognized some things L and B had shown me also. Cafe Angelique was one. I’m so longing to go to Paris again — it’s been six years. Maybe in 2019. Thank you for taking time to recreate your time and share with us, Linda and Bernie! XO Jeanie
