The Obama family have been enjoying the sights of Paris now that Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, are done school. Sasha, who turns 8 on Wednesday, will reportedly get to celebrate her birthday atop the Eiffel Tower at celebrity chef Alain Ducasse’s restaurant.

First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha did some sightseeing in Paris today (June 5), including a visit to Eiffel Tower.
Hundreds of onlookers screamed “Michelle” as she stepped out of a Chevrolet to wave to the crowd before shepherding 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha into the landmark tower by a discreet side entrance in the south pillar.
The family left just as the tower, soaring 324 metres above the Paris skyline, suddenly lit up the night sky with thousands of sparkling lights. After dining at Le Jules Verne, the Obama trio called it a night.
President Barack Obama is expected to fly home on Sunday while the family will spend an extra day in Paris. On Sunday, Mrs. Obama and her girls will visit French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni and their children at the Elysee Palace.
Wow, what a great experience for the girls!
