Cité des Enfants

The rain has still not stopped, and we are fast running out of ideas to fill our days. Yesterday we went to the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie at La Villette. We reserved a spot at the Cité des Enfants (for ages 2-7 or 5-12) for an hour and a half of fun activities and games. Stella had a blast and we will definitely be going back if the rain keeps up. Now, what should we do today?!

La pluie ne cesse pas et on est a court d’idées pour remplir nos journées à la maison. Donc hier on a été à la Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie à La Villette. On a réservé une séance dans la Cité des Enfants (pour petits 2-7 ans ou grands 5-12 ans) pour une heure et demi d’activités et jeux. Stella a adoré et je pense qu’on retournerait vite si le temps continue ainsi. Mais alors, qu’est-ce qu’on va faire aujourd’hui?!

Proud mama

Yesterday was Stella’s first dance recital (I promise there is no video)! And since we are not allowed to watch them dance each week, it was a real surprise to watch those little 3 and 4 year olds make juice with their feet, get stuck in the mud, run around like horses, jump like frogs and slink like caterpillars! We were so proud of her. And believe me it was not easy to hold the baby back from taking part in the show:)

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.

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!)

A Stella day

We managed to get a few photos in front of the Stella McCartney store in Palais Royal before they tear down the boards, and a little pit stop at Café Kitsuné for a some coffee:)

Cherry Blossoms

Sunday was the Bonjour Colette - Tokyo music festival in the Parc de Sceaux, it was beautiful cherry blossom season, and even though the weather was not too great the kids had great fun dancing and running around. Merci Colette for the new discovery, it was beautiful surprise.
