How to Search for an Airbnb in Paris

I love using Airbnb when I travel for so many reasons but this is especially true in Paris. The hotel rooms in Paris tend to be teeny-tiny so getting an apartment is a way better value. If you haven’t traveled much in Europe the idea of staying in a flat vs. a hotel can seem strange (I had to talk my sister into it recently) but it’s how most people travel in Europe. I lived in Paris for a year and a half and my friends are always asking me to help them choose an Airbnb so I thought I would do a post on how to choose an Airbnb Flat in Paris.  I actually just returned from a trip to Paris and we stayed in the most beautiful Airbnb flat. (Of course there are lots of great neighborhoods but for the sake of this post I’m going to narrow it down to my three favorites.)

Bubble Relay Race

We hosted a “Welcome Summer”party a few weeks ago as part of a Quaker Chewy campaign. I already shared a post about the Color Fight and today I’m sharing photos from our bubble relay race. We split all the kids into teams and had them race across the grass doing the crab walk. The twist is I set up 4 bubble machines to create a giant tunnel of bubbles to race through. After the races in turned into the kids just chasing bubbles around (the little ones got a little distracted-ha!) Don’t miss my Sister Design Mom’s post & My Sister in Law Say Yes’ post too!
