Pieces of Paris {Part One} | Place des Vosges

Bonjour!

IMG_9561eThe city of love and full of adventure. Back in June {yes I’m horrible at keeping you all updated} A couple cousins {and really good friends} & I set off on a Parisian adventure! I’d love to share so much with you, but I have way too many words and too many pictures to make just one post… so I’m going to randomly post “Pieces of Paris”, they will go in no such order of events and will mainly be about one piece of our trip.

{Part 1} | Place de Vosges, a flash mob & my $8 eclair.

Place de Vosges//one of the oldest squares in the city//in the Marais district//IMG_0391e

We decided that stopping by L’Éclair de génie and picking up a tasty eclair and eating it in the park with some coffee sounded marvelous. I choose the Vanilla Pecan with a bit of caramel, it was a very hard decision {which one would you pick-click hereI think I changed my mind while ordering aloud about three times, the poor french speaking eclair seller. But really  how could you choose when they had so many delightful combinations and you wanted to get the best but also watch your spending because the more elaborate the more euros! Mine came out to be around $8 american dollars. So I saved it and did not sneak a bite and carefully carried it all the way to the park IMG_0377e

Upon entering the park we were disappointed because there were people “milling” about everywhere! We picked a park bench to sit on and were just about ready to indulge in that first glorious eclair bite and we noticed that the people who were in the park weren’t milling about, there were some cozy on picnic blankets, but others were standing completely still frozen in place, then we noticed people taking pictures of the still figures

flash mob

….all of the sudden the music started and flash mob/dance off. The frozen broke loose into dancing, we ran over to get close to the action for some great picture shotsIMG_0388e

In the meantime as I’m trying to balance my camera single handed while holding my coffee & eclair- yep you guessed it I dropped my eclair right into the gravel! So after the dancing I dusted/picked gravel off my $8 eclair and ate it anyway…grit-crunch-smooth creamy-grit-crunch bite. Despite the bits of crunch/grit that was not pecans it was the yummiest eclair to date:)

We couldn’t quite figure out exactly who was in the dancing/flash mob group, I’m assuming possibly something with veterans because it was shortly after D-Day. They were all dressed adorable! IMG_0395

Such a pretty park and surrounding area! place des vosges 2place des vosges

sarahflyingkites - Such a fun post! Love the flash mob – perfect timing!

And the eclair looks amazing – I SO would have done the same thing…pick it up and eat it! :)

Thanks for sharing – fun read!

The Fehr Kids!

I’ve taken the Fehr Kids’ pictures for the last couple years, and they are getting very comfortable around me…this year I was on their home turf-climbing trees {I stayed on the level ground}, roaming through the barn {yes I did step through a pile of poop and cringed but the boys assured me I would be just fine}, meeting the dog buddy and much more! Here’s a sneak at our adventures:) fehr 027fehr 024fehr 021fehr 019fehr 015fehr 009fehr 011fehr 016fehr 003fehr 031fehr 028fehr 030

Bethany - So cute!

The Krumholz Family!

Now that Brad & Katie are both graduated I was sad I wouldn’t be taking anymore senior pictures, I even teased them that one was going to have to get married now so I could take their wedding pictures…but Family pictures will do just as well, you have a beautiful family and I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with you guys! Enjoy!
