Enjoying the sunshine

It’s a beautiful, warm spring day with summer just around the corner. After lunch on the terrace at a local restaurant, where the kids devoured a pizza as well as most of the fries of Papa’s plate, we headed home for some ice cream and some play time on our terrace. Juliette’s learned how to put Alexandre to work, pushing the tricycle while she steers. Big sisters, eh?

Got enough toys, kids?

“Faster! Faster!”

Alex seems like he’s having fun

Like father, like son

Kids love to imitate adults. Through a combination of misfortune and his own incompetence, Papa managed to mangle the tractor last weekend. While it’s in the shop being repaired, Papa had to tackle the lawn on the side of the house the old-fashioned way, with a hand mower. Well, no sooner did the kids see Papa doing this than wanting to join in themselves. Juliette was too quick for Papa to grab the camera, but he was in time to catch Alex trimming the lawn.

Pool time

The weather’s getting warm, and it’s time to pull out the pool. The kids had fun cooling off in the hot sunshine!

Summertime… and the living is easy!
