Sunday in the Paris Ward

Here is Shantal, her brother (Cory Cropper) Kelly's BYU study abroad Professor and his two daughter's.
Kelly and her friends saying good-bye.
Kelly, Scott and Ryan in the subway in route to church.

This is the doors that lead into the Paris Ward. There is a special code and then the door opens up. It really reminded me of the sound of music, where the nuns lived. Cars can even come in and park inside.

Arc de Triomphe

Kelly, Ryan, Shelly and Scott at night on the Champs-Elysees!

Day 2 in Paris!

We went to church at the Paris Ward. Lots of wonderful people from all over the world there. We took the meto and walked the Champs-Elysees, saw the Arc de Triomphe. This is a BIG structure, built by Napoleon. We had a full day.

We made it to Paris!

Bonjour from Paris. We made it here and are having a wonderful time. We love and miss our family and wish you all well and our love at this time.
Here we are near the most famous Eiffel Tower. It is very impressive up close. Massive.
Kelly and Ryan taking their place near the Eiffel Tower. Was great to see Kelly after her being away from home for the past 2 months. She has led us all over Paris on their Metro lines. Very amazing how well you can get around without a car. We have walked a lot as well.
Here we are as it begins to get dark and the Eiffel Tower is lit up at night. Our first night in Paris.
