Happy 4th!

For all those fellow Americans out there, Happy 4th!

Here in France it’s just another day, except that it’s also officially the first day of summer for all the little ones. And of course, let’s not forget the big game, “Allez les Bleus!”

I will be dreaming of picnics and BBQs all day…have a great one!

we love green

This past weekend we went to the We Love Green music festival in the Parc de Bagatelle. Besides a very poorly organized kids area and an hour long wait for the restroom, the kids had a blast. The weather was beautiful and we ate, danced and made new friends, and even got to hear Cat Power.

Ce weekend on a été au festival de We Love Green au parc de Bagatelle. A part un espace pour enfant très mal organiser et une heure d’attente pour les toilettes, les enfants se sont bien éclaté. Il a fait très beau, nous avons mangé, dansé et ont fait de nouveaux amis, et on a même pu voir Cat Power.

Le weekend

This weekend was Mother’s day in France, and we had a nice and relaxing weekend. It rained all day Saturday and we stayed inside in our pyj’s for most of the day. Stella decided to set up a doctor’s waiting room in the hallway, I guess all those recent visits to the dentist have had an effect on her… Then yesterday we went to every park in the neighborhood to make up for our lazy day before and had a nice long lunch with family.

I am so thankful and proud to be the maman to these two little munchkins, they amaze me and humble me everyday, but man do I need a good night’s sleep!

I was just in Monoprix this morning, and “just happened” to wander into the baby section, I so wish I had a little baby girl again!! The Bout’chou collection for this summer is just perfect. Here are a few things from the collection, but there were so many beautiful pieces in store.

J’étais chez Monoprix ce matin et “par hasard” je suis passé dans la section pour bébés, j’aimerais tellement avoir une petite fille encore!! La collection d’été pour filles de chez Bout’chou est juste parfaite. Voici quelques pièces sur le site, mais il y a encore tellement de jolies choses en boutique.

Baby at the farm

Well this past weekend was baby’s first visit to a farm (la Ferme de Gally), and it was quite the adventure…someone fell and skinned her knees and had to be carried the entire day, so someone got a special flower crown to make her feel better, while another little someone was very excited about the animals but was even more excited about holding his plastic bottle all day (impossible to pry out of his hands!)

The past two weeks have been pretty wild, the kids were off and my mom was visiting from Charleston, yeah! We not only managed to fit in one, but two birthday parties for our now one year old, visit the newly opened Paris Zoo, discover Aix-en-Provence for the first time, look like major tourists at the beach, eat some big (way too expensive) fish in Marseille and just have an overall blast. Now if I could only figure out how to post to my blog from my new phone…

Les deux dernière semaines été un peu folle, les enfants étaient en vacances et ma mère nous rendait visite de Charleston, yeah! Nous avons quand même réussi à célébrer pas une fois, mais deux fois, l’anniversaire du un ans de notre fils, visiter le parc zoologique de Paris qui vient de re-ouvrir, visiter Aix-en-Provence pour la première fois, avoir l’air de grosse touristes à la plage, de manger le poisson le plus cher du monde à Marseille, des vacances génial. Maintenant, il faut juste que j’arrive à faire de postes sur le blog depuis mon nouveau portable…

Beautiful Seesaw

At the last Playtime Paris I discovered this beautiful Spanish brand Seesaw, a mix fun and classic styles in bright colors for babies and toddlers. My favorite is the pink Cosmic dress and the little bloomers for this summer.
