Boston Terrier DIVES to the bottom of the pool!

Miley and Howie are OBSESSED with swimming!! :) We cannot keep them out of the pool in the summer! They love jumping off the diving board, and sometimes they can even catch the frisbee in mid air.

Here’s a video of them last summer jumping off the diving board.

And here’s what Howie learned how to do over the weekend!

We noticed that when jumping off the diving board after his frisbee, he’d sometimes land on top of it, sinking it down a few inches. When it didn’t see it floating on the surface, he’d dive down in the water searching for it and come back up with the frisbee in his mouth.

We’d seen lots of videos on YouTube of diving Boston Terriers (even one going 7 feet deep!), and wanted to see if Howie would do it too. We practiced on the steps, gradually lowering the frisbee an inch or two at a time. In no time at all he was going lower than we could hold it, even all the way down to the bottom of the pool.

Here’s the video if you want to watch. There’s even a slow-mo replay of Howie’s wiggling little booty underwater!

We used this Nikon COOLPIX Waterproof Camera to make this video. (Not sponsored!) It takes great underwater photos and videos, and I can even send photos from the camera to my iPhone without the need for a WiFi connection using the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility iPhone app.

Thanks so much for looking! Happy summer!! :) xoxo

Where to Stay in Paris near the Eiffel Tower. Paris Hotel Recommendations + Travel Tips. #paris #travel #france #parishotels

So many of you asked where we stayed in Paris with this incredible Eiffel Tower view right out our window. I loved our view and loved the area that we stayed in, but to be completely honest, I’m not 1000% sure I would recommend where we stayed or if I would stay there again.

Below is our story of what happened, I’ll let you be the judge!

We stayed at the Hotel Splendid Eiffel Tower in a Junior Suite. This was the view from our room with our own little balcony. We could even clearly see our room from the top of the Eiffel Tower.

I didn’t take any pictures of the inside of our room because honestly, it wasn’t much to look at. It was very, very, old, and it showed. It was also tiny, even though we were in a “suite.” I can’t imagine what the regular rooms looked like! It was also not… perfectly pristine and white. There were stains on the carpet. The comforter on the bed was one of those floral motel-type bedspreads.

However, I am not a hotel snob, and the sheets and bathroom were clean, and there were no bugs, so I was fine with the room for the short amount of time we’d be in it. But if you’re squeamish about those types of things, definitely keep that in mind. But that’s not what made me unsure if I’d ever stay here again

Here’s what it looked like from the outside. We stayed in that very tip top room. See the window in the roof?

Some more pros about the room:

  • There were outlets right by the bed.
  • There was WiFi, but it wasn’t free.
  • There was a full-length mirror.

Also, I loved the area and neighborhood we were in. We were walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, so almost every night before heading back to the hotel, we’d stop by and watch the light show that happens for 5 minutes at the top of every hour, until 1am.

Every hour on the hour, starting at sunset, the Eiffel Tower lights up with a spectacular 20,000 twinkling lights that sparkle for a completely magical five minutes. I tried to capture it in a photo, but couldn’t even come close to doing it justice.

The neighborhood we were in was quiet and beautiful, filled with gorgeous shops and delicious restaurants.

Loved walking by a brand new bouquet of roses every day.

My favorite gelato in the entire world was also right there. We went here multiple times.

They have Nutella-stuffed crepes topped with ice cream, and waffles drizzled with Nutella and topped with more ice cream.

There was a cute little cookie shop, with deliciously soft, chewy, buttery cookies.

And the view from our room was unforgettable.

However. On our second-to-last night in Paris, we walked into our hotel at 9:55pm, planning to be in our room to watch the 10pm show of the Eiffel Tower. We stepped into the elevator, pressed the button for the sixth floor, the elevator went up, and then… The door never opened. We waited. The door never opened. We waited a bit more. The door never opened. We pressed 6 again, and nothing happened. We pressed the Door Open button, and nothing happened. We pressed the Call button, and nothing happened. We pressed the Alarm button, and nothing happened. We were trapped in the elevator.
