As the family walked into the huge city of Paris, France a light blanket of snow came sprinkling down from the sky. The young girl of this family was ready for a fabulous experience to tour the busy city and celebrate a wonderful Christmas. It was going to be her first real special trip.

The family all woke up the next morning ready to start their first real day in Paris. The little girl Emily was anxious to see the Eiffel Tower. Everyone all agreed to go so they headed out in their winter clothes to go to the Eiffel Tower. The sounds of trucks were passing by and the smell of popcorn was in the air. The Pareasians were passing by with their black brief cases, and the snow melted onto Emily’s rosy cheeks. Once they all arrived Emily was enchanted with excitement. As they started walking up the stairs of the Eiffel Tower the young girl Emily was scared to move any higher but, her parents refused to let her miss a fabulous opportunity. So, she kept going and they finally got to the top. Emily looked out and realized that the scary part was over but was glad she was able to see this amazing view of the city. She loved the view of the snow on the trees that sparkled all over. She was so happy to be able to face a fear and not miss out on something spectacular. It was a phenomenal start to her trip.

When she awoke the next morning the smell of croissants, coffee, and tea spilled through the air. Emily jumped out of her bed and ran to the Christmas tree to unwrap all her presents. “Merry Christmas!” exclaimed everyone. After, a full morning of singing carols, opening presents, and eating breakfast they all headed out to see the Nutcracker. Emily and her cousins all enjoyed the soft Christmas music, the professional dancers skipping and sacheting all over, and the green and red lights flashing upon their warm, pale faces. It was an addition to another amazing day in Paris.

Now after a great five days in Paris it was now coming to an end. In other words, it was Emily’s family last day there, so they all wanted to make every hour worth it. Emily went off with her cousins and they all went shopping in the great city of Paris. After, many hours of moving around and trying on expensive clothes they all headed out to the Louve (a famous art museum that had the painting of the real Mona Lisa). As she walked through the mob of people, there she saw the real masterpiece of the Mona Lisa. It was so real, and sophisticated with colors. So after many hours of shopping and being at the Louvre their tired bodies went back to the hotel to get ready for a fabulous dinner.

Emily swallowed down her French chicken and soup as well as everyone else. The whole family then spent their last night of joy, laughter, and being together in Paris. Emily will never forget this amazing experience she had, which was, learning some French, getting to learn the culture, facing a fear, and trying different foods. She will never forget all the wonderful things that happened to her while on the trip.
