Day 8 "Eiffel Tower/Cairo"

Our last morning in Paris.  We rushed out of bed and ran to the Eiffel Tower.  We did not have a chance to climb up the tower.  There are just way too many things to do in Paris!  We did want to get some fun photos in front of the tower though.  Jovee was a sweetie.  Even though we were in a hurry she just slept on Norris's shoulder.  Poor girl was wiped out from this trip!

It was great to see the Tower in the morning.  We went one other time during our trip but we saw it in the evening.  There were a ton of people there waiting in line to climb to the top, and it was only 8 in the morning!!!

We got some fun family pictures and then headed back to the apartment get our stuff to head back to Cairo.  Thinking our departure could not be any more stressful than take-off we headed to the airport.  Oh were we wrong.  Our flight was scheduled on-time.  We got to our gate and then just waited, and waited, and waited.  Finally they let us board the buses to take us to the plane.  Again we were put on the bus to only wait it out.  They were looking for a man they had lost.  Not sure how you lose a passenger but whatever.  During this hour Jovee was asleep on my shoulder.  We were really frustrated because had we taken off on time Jovee would have slept on the flight!  Oh well!!!  We got to the plane and again we just waited.  They kept making announcements that they needed to find this man for security reasons.  Did not make you feel very safe that is for sure.  We kept watching as the flight attendants were walking up and down the isles counting people and looking at our tickets.  Craziness!!!!  Apparently they found the missing man and after 2 1/2 hours we finally took off!!!

Well the Joverton was wide awake by then and Norris and I were exhausted!!!!  But we had the i-pad which saved our lives.  She just looked at pictures and watched "Monster's Inc." for 4 hours!!!!  Thank you Apple!!!!!

We finally landed and got our car, with no problems and headed back to our house!  Jovee slept for 12 hours and then took a 3 hour nap the next day!  Poor girl was worn out!!!!

What a great trip and wonderful memories to have for the rest of our lives!!!!!  Thank you Paris for putting up with the Ham family for 8 days!!!!
