Day 2 Paris

After 3 or 4 hours of sleep I was wide awake from midnight to 5am. At 5am I feel back asleep and would have slept through noon if it was for a call from the in laws. With the better part of the day gone we snapped into high gear and started day 2. Again the priorities were sites the kids wanted to see.
1. The Arc de Triomphe
2. Eiffel Tower

By this time the kids were wearing out and wanted to go back to the hotel or hungry for lunch. We put the kids and HC on a Batoboat back to the hotel. We would find out later that there was a detour to a famous chocolate/candy store.

Susie and I were excited to stroll about a little more freely. We decided to walk back to the hotel hitting as many parks as we could.

1. Champ de Mars
2. École Militaire
3. L'Hôtel national des Invalides
4. Esplanade des Invalides
5. The Pont Alexandre III arch bridge
6. Grand Palais
7. Marcel Proust park
8. Église de la Madeleine

By this time it was late and we had promised to take the kids for a swim.
The gym was right next door so I popped in to hit a quick workout. I hit a old stand by dumbbell WOD. MONDAY 110214
Five rounds of:
5 Dumbbell deadlifts
5 Dumbbell hang cleans
5 Dumbbell push presses
5 Dumbbell squats
Increase the load each round. Rest as necessary between rounds. Josh Everett 50-70-90-90-100lbs.

I kind of messed this one up and forgot you couldn't put the weights down between movements and I couldn't change weights because of a limited selections I decided to hit 20kg for all rounds. Got it in around 8 minutes.

Dinner was at Pierre au Palais Royal. Roland and his girlfriend joined us.
