We heart Paris
One thing that we really wanted to do in Paris was have a wine, cheese, and bread picnic beneath the Eiffel Tower. So one fine day, we wandered down Rue Le Cler, stopping at the fromagerie, the boulanger, and the wine shop to pick up the necessary items. [FYI... while food generally isn't cheap, you can buy a fine bottle of red wine for about 1,50 Euros (about $2 CAD) and champagne comes as cheap as 1 Euro a bottle.]
Best. Picnic. Ever.
Maybe it was the wine, or maybe this post from Don't Ever Look Back was still stuck in the back of my mind, but after our picnic I felt the insatiable desire for some more cheese...of the photo variety.
Everyone wanted some cheesy Eiffel Tower pictures
You know what I mean... those really cheesy Eiffel Tower pictures where you're holding it or pushing it down? We got a little more creative than most... and had a blast taking them. Luckily for me, Mike was a good sport (and a great photographer!) so we got some my favourite photos from our trip thus far...

Push though you may, that tower isn't going anywhere

Good to the last drop
Too much wine?

Hungry hungry Mike
Cheesy photos aren't just for the Eiffel Tower... we got the pyramid at the Louvre in on the action
Mike, pretending to be the pyramid
Wow... anyone else notice how destructive Mike is in all these pictures?
Mike continues eating his way through Paris...
