{Travel} European Vacation - Night 2 Paris

For our second night in Paris we were ready to venture out a little farther than our sweet neighborhood and decided to check out Champs Elysees.  
(If you need to catch up, day 1 and day 2.)
It was about a 15 minute walk from our place (stopping along one of Paris' many bridges for a photo).
 Crossing over the Seine.
 We walked along Avenue Charles V, ogling at all of the high end designer stores.  We stopped for dinner along the way. Isn't this drink pretty? It was Miss High School's fancy Italian soda.
 I had another delicious veggie meal. This one had roasted vegetables, quinoa and greens.
 Champs Elysees is really something to see at night.
 Either direction you look is stunning.
Of course we had to get a closer look at the Arc de Triomphe.  There's a road running around it and lots of traffic so this was as close as we got that night.

Get this family a selfie stick!
 We ordered our Louvre tickets on line and had to pick them up at a store called fnac along Champs Elysees.
 fnac is kind of like the French version of Best Buy.  We were able to pick up our tickets at a kiosk in the store which was very convenient.  I also bought a cd of French Christmas carols.
 We stopped at the world famous macaron shop called Laduree.
 On one side of the bakery is a restaurant (not that busy late at night).
 The other side had a line going out the door but it was worth it for these babies.
Look how pretty the box is!  They do melt in your mouth in case you're wondering.
and the bag (and the girl!).
We took a cab back to our apartment.
I enjoyed a nightcap by my favorite view.
