I dragged my family out with the excuse to visit the Vide Grenier in the 7th arrondissement.

Pedestrian traffic on a sunny Sunday afternoon on the Champs Elysées
Sacre Coeur in the background
Big and small biking along the quais
Musée d'Orsay taken by assault by tourists
Skateboarders having a ball
Ooops, I lost the kids...
