Art in the City

Saturday we left the house as the rain started to pour down, with two kids in a city this doesn’t leave for many possibilities. We decided to head over to the Palais de Tokyo. It actually turned out to be a relatively kid-friendly choice. We spent the entire day eating, doing arts and crafts and running like wild – a perfect rainy, yet cultural, Saturday.

Le Weekend

It’s been awhile since I’ve taken some photos for the blog, and this past weekend was jam-packed with lots of ballerina mischief, brunching with friends, digging up worms and adventures in the woods. I always love an Indian summer, hoping the sun will stay a little while longer!

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:)
