Paris - Today we're visiting Notre Dame

Today we're off to visit the famous Cathedral of Notre Dame.


We're waiting to go inside....hopefully we'll stay out of trouble here.



Did you know Notre Dame has Gargoyles?

The Gargoyles of Notre Dame:
What do you see when you look up to the top of the great cathedral of Notre Dame? You see monsters, half-man and half-beast. These demon looking creatures carved out of stone are called gargoyles. They are one of the many eerie stone figures that adorn the gutters of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Gargoyle comes from a Latin word, meaning gullet or drain. That's what the strange looking creatures are, they're drainpipes. Each grotesque figure has a passageway inside that carries rainwater from the roof and out through the gargoyle's mouth. From the top of the cathedral's towers the gargoyles have a magnificent view of the city.

OH NO!  Ellie and Allie - GET DOWN!!!


Where's Raz???

I think Ellie and Allie are far to pretty to be gargoyles!

OMC! I cannot believe where you found Raz. He is so brave. Tomorrow I am going to Norte Dame and I will see if Raz is stuck and if so find help for him.
