August 2010

July flew by. Lazy, rainy, chilly in Paris. The Pickars were supposed to come for a visit the first week in August, but Ken's back made them cancel their trip. Jacques came back from his holiday in the Alps and the Jura and last Wednesday we went with him to see the Marinot exhibit in Troyes. The first few photos from this slideshow are from Troyes. I don't know why there's one out of sync with the rest in the middle of the photos from Six-Fours.

We came down to Six-Fours last Thursday to celebrate Pierre and Gillette's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful occasion to see the whole family, albeit without our own kids. Anne-Valerie and family left yesterday after lunch and Alexandre left today with his bunch. Pierre-Fréderic and family are still here. We are leaving tomorrow. This is going to be a very short post as I am anxious to get changed and into the pool!

Bon.  Quelques mots en français quand même, pour la famille ! Si vous avez la possibilité d'aller à Troyes, allez au Musée de l'art moderne ; il vaut le détour. En ce moment il y a une exposition des tableaux et verreries de Marinot du début du 20è siècle.
Ensuite, il y la fête des 50 ans de mariâge de Pierre et Gillette, ce qui nous a donné l'occasion de voir beaucoup de la famille -- quoiqu'il manquait nos propres enfants.
J'arrête -- la piscine m'appelle !
