Well, two weeks have flown by, and my mom is on her way back to St. Louis tomorrow. We didn't even let her out of the house much, only once for the trip to the garden center and then this morning for church, so she is probably ready to fly the coop. She has declined to fit Noah in her luggage and take him back with her, so I guess we are stuck with both of them.
Saturday some of Frédéric's cousins, his brother and sister-in-law, and his niece came over for lunch. It was a short lunch by our standards, lasting only about five and a half hours. The cheese-stuffed snow peas served as an appetizer were a big hit - too bad they were such a pain to make that we won't be doing them again!
We had a little sun before the clouds took over, but even with the sun, it was too cold for the kids to go in the swimming pool. We decided it would be wiser to have dessert inside so we didn't get rained on.
We picked everything we could out of the garden today and will be taking zucchini, snow peas, green beans and tomatoes with us to Germany. We are planning on going to Legoland on Tuesday so I should have some more interesting pictures to post soon!
