French Sabbatical

My family's year in France…

Day 247 (4 March 2011) – Manon’s Birthday

To celebrate the fact that today is Manon’s birthday (sweet 16, to be exact!), Melinda took us out for Mexican food for lunch. What this has to do with Manon’s birthday is lost on me now, but the food was great. Chloe proclaimed it the best Mexican food we’ve had in France, a statement about my homemade tacos, I think. Or it had everything to do with the fact that today is Manon’s birthday and to celebrate Chloe had Mexican food.

To celebrate the fact that today is Manon’s birthday, Ella and I posed for this photo inside the Mexican restaurant while waiting for our lunches to arrive. What posing for this photo has to do with Manon’s birthday is lost on me now, but you have to admit that Ella’s bangs look really good. Me, I look a little funny with my hand in front of my mouth but, hey, the more of my face that gets covered in pictures the longer the camera will last, right? Or it has everything to do with the fact that today is Manon’s birthday and to celebrate I put my hand in front of my face.

To celebrate the fact that today is Manon’s birthday, I hereby dedicate today’s post to her. Happy birthday, Manon! We are looking forward to seeing you in Les Carroz tomorrow and spending the next week with you and your lovely family.

Oh, to you regular blog readers… I’m hoping to be able to post each day while in Les Carroz but I hear Internet access may be a little challenging. If I’m delayed in posting, please be aware that I will be writing my blog posts each day and then posting them as Internet time allows, either in Les Carroz or once we’re back in Nantes on the 13th or 14th.

PS – See some photos of the restaurant we went to today, called Rice ‘n Beans, and read some pretty silly accompanying commentary at The Puff List.
