Les Scènes du Week-end {2}... plus a complaint letter to Blogger

Dear Blogger,

I'm not impressed with you.
Not one bit.

You refused to publish all my lovely weekend photos on Monday.
I thought maybe you were just having a bad day.

But when you continued to be uncooperative on Tuesday,
my patience wore thin.

And when I still couldn't post my photos on Wednesday,
I was beyond annoyed.

Now it's Thursday &
I'm three days behind on my posting.

Ok, ok... sometimes I don't post because I get busy doing other things.
But this time there is no one to blame but you, Blogger.

You'd better have a good excuse.
Also, flowers & chocolate never hurt.


So, without further ado...

Saturday my sister-in-law, brother-in-law & the kids 
came to spend the day with us in Annecy.

Ready for lots of photos of my adorable niece & nephew 
in this edition of "Les Scenes du Week-end"?  
I thought so!

Everybody arrived on Saturday just in time for lunch.
Of course "le crêpe party" was in order...
Martin wasn't so keen on the crepes, 
but he was all about playing with the box of apples in the kitchen.
Juliette brought me these herbs for my balcony garden.  Love!
She did some gardening of her own on the lawn outside our apartment.
After lunch, we wandered over to the "bird park" 
& admired the peacock.
FQ & Juliette fed a few of Annecy's famous water fowl.
Une très jolie photo {if I do say so myself} de la petite famille.
Heading towards the old town, we caught the end of a concert for kids.

  1. Em,
    Love the photos! They were definitely worth waiting for. That being said though, let's hope your next post causes you no trouble at all. Otherwise we're going to have to kick Blogger's ass.

    Annecy is so pretty in the springtime! ANd that's got me thinkign abotu our photo project plan. Hmmm, what to call it?

  2. I'm glad to see the photos of your week end. Where else but in France would a little girl wear a scarf around her neck tied in such a fashionable way? Actually, I don't believe that I've seen a little girl here happily wearing a scarf at all. Mostly their mothers just tie them around their necks with no regard to fashion at all.

  3. I wish I could learn how to like coffee so that I would have an excuse to stop at scenic places and drink out of tiny cups. In France.
