Paris, France Day 2 - Panoramic Views from The Eiffel Tower :)

Bellies full after a super yummy meal at Robuchon and we were off to our next stop... The Eiffel Tower!!  

What better way to work off our mighty fine meal than waiting in line for more than half an hour to take a ride to the very top. :)  The wait wasn't nearly as bad as we thought it might be (considering it was the perfect time to catch the sunset and the line ran nearly a mile long!!).  Luckily, it moved quickly and we made it to the top without much trouble at all.. pushing and shoving aside... (these tourists were CRAZY!!) 

The views were spectacular and it was a perfect end to another amazing day in Paris.  :) 

Sooooomeeeonnne looks NERVOUS!!  ;)

It looks almost calm... (should've taken a picture of the line we were in!)

Eiffel himself.. in the flesh...or nearly... ;)

We are going up WHERE???? 

Tickets to the TOP!!!

Even thru the Parisian haze... you could see for miles!!

STILL more to climb to get to the top :)

Gorgeous any way you looked.. 

Observation Deck #1

Catching a beautiful sunset :)

And.. it's gone.. 

Taking another elevator to the VEEEERRRY, VEEEERRRY TOP!!

I was too busy holding on for dear life to really pay attention to what I was taking pictures of.. 
lol.. luckily, they came out awesome either way!  

One hand clasped tight and one hand sticking out the fence to take pictures... 
EVEN I WAS nervous and I've BEEN SKYDIVING!  Poor nervous Chad.. He did VERY well though..

Awesome sky and moon 

A little champagne to calm the nerves.. 

Kinda funny...but FITTING to have them sell champagne way up here.. ;)
CHEERS to NOT falling off!  ;)

Search light from the top of the tower.. 

There really are no words.. 

Mr. & Mrs. Kelley 

Sad to go..???  ;)  Looks so pensive.. 

Looking up the elevator as we head down..
