Les Scènes du Week-end {18}

How fun is a four-day weekend?
Mine sure was.

Thursday, as you know, was Bastille Day & a reunion with old friends.

Friday FQ & I attended Musilac
an outdoor music festival in Aix-les-Bains, a town near Annecy.
There were crowds {30,000 people!}, a lot of sun, some beer, 
enormous line-ups for the Jiffy Johns & lots of great music, of course.

Saturday we were expected in Pommiers for lunch.
Normally this wouldn't be a problem, 
as it only takes an hour-and-a-half to drive there.

However, when you re-live your youth at a music festival
& don`t go to bed until 3:00 a.m.,
it's not that easy to be on the road at a decent time.

Luckily, we spent the rest of the weekend relaxing 
& visiting with my belle-famille.
The guest of honour was my nephew Arthur,
who lives in NYC but is back in France for the summer.

On Saturday, it was warm & sunny, so we hit the pool.
On Sunday, it was miserable & rainy, so we hit the cinema.
The boys went to see Harry Potter
& I took Juliette to see Kung Fu Panda 2.

So, to sum up the four-day weekend:
Friends & fireworks & festivals.
Pool & pandas.

Excellent stuff.

  1. Ah Musilac ! C'est vraiment génial ce festival !

  2. A four day weekend sounds great right now.

    The pictures are fantastic.

  3. That sounds like a fantastic weekend. Minus the staying up till 3. I don't remember the last time I voluntarily did that. Want tiramisu right now.

  4. J'adore Pommiers...

    Lovely photos, as usual!

    I've found a Sorrento postcard- hurrah! It's got your name on it.

    Talk to you next week.
