some of my favorite memories of paris with my family:

+eating ice cream every day, twice a day (ice cream that my mom famously deemed, “the best ice cream in ameri—i mean, paris”).

+ sending my parents on a surprise dinner cruise along the seine river

+ meeting up with my sisters at the H&M counter with clothes piled up to my eyeballs (we’re not going to talk about how much money i spent there)

+spending an afternoon getting lost in top shop (again, choosing to ignore the amount of money spent there)

+perusing local shops and street markets, bringing home fresh food each day to the quaint little loft we rented

+watching three of my family members order cokes at an outdoor restaurant and observing the look of horror on my dad’s face when he realized each beverage was 7 euro 50 (over $10)

+somehow experiencing no jet lag whatsoever, and having enough energy to cartwheel in front of the eiffel tower as the sun went down

omg sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. Oh and how sweet of you guys to book your parents on a surprise dinner cruise.

Whoa those ice cream cones are legit, like way more ice cream holding friendly. I never thought the French to be so tactile.

my favorite memory with your family in Paris was that time I couldn't tell if it was your or your sister in any of the pictures!

Bahahaha, "the look of horror when he realized each beverage was 7 eur 50" <-- I still have that look of horror every time I set foot in a restaurant! I've trained myself to not need beverages when I eat... lol

Yeah, trips to Europe trained me to not need sodas, haha.

Those are great memories! And don't worry, I dropped $130 (US) at H&M in twenty minutes flat the other day - you're not alone!
