After days of rain the sun came out on Saturday and we celebrated Bastille Day beneath blue skies. We enjoyed baguettes, macaroons, markets, music and people watching at the French Festival. I couldn't resist some French inspired home wares purchases. Cohen was suitably impressed with a helium balloon and an ice cream, (though he sadly informed me Sunday morning that his balloon was "not well," when it no longer floated.) We left as grey clouds rolled over and the threat of rain hung over us. As we drove home both children slept but the rain held off.
