all the rest of la fête

{teeny tiny carnival}

Being totally mature, I called it a night about 11pm on Brazil Day. The Husband was not so mature. He and Gatz (because of course Gatz was staying with us) bumbled in at 4am. Now here's a question for you; do you think they came in quietly and went straight to bed? Or do you think they decided to make a little mischief outside Honey Jr's house using drunken whisper voices? (which we all know is just shouting in a breathy voice).

Of course it was drunken whisper mischief. You know it was.

Despite the 4am disturbance, I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed a little after 7, went outside with my special, write on glass pen, and wrote all sorts of fun things all over the windows of Gatz's car. A little payback for drunken whisper mischief (sometimes I'm not so mature).

Sunday afternoon of la fête was spent playing a pétanque tournament behind La Petite Notre Dame (pétanque is like boules). I arrived a little late (after a scandalous conversation with Grandma Honey about the Resistance and Collaborators in Le Petit Village... I'm sure the Nazi Ghost Zombies' ears were burning) so I missed out on the playing... 

{The Cousin, Honey Jr, Honey's Honey, and an a**}

... but The Cousin, Honey Jr and Honey Jr's girlfriend (who I think I'll call Honey's Honey... what do you think?) played... and that other guy on the right. I'm not too sure who he is (although on Brazil Day I caught him peeing on La Petite Notre Dame and give him a good scolding... what an a**... and no, he's not a Le Petit Villager). 

{I'm cool like that}
And for no particular reason other than ridiculous cuteness, here's The Cousin's baby (who is named after an X-Men character... I'm not joking). I will never be as cool as this baby, ever. Notice how his t-shirt matches his father's shorts in the other photo?

ridiculous cuteness.

  3. I thought petanque and boules were different names for the same game; maybe different regions used different names? Do they have different rules?

  4. Fun times au Petit Village ! Really enjoyed the picture of the Burberry-clad, sunglasses-wearing baby! Kuddos to his dad for sporting Burberry shorts. They are not easy to pull off! Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

  6. Wolverette? Super cute, whatever her name.
    I don't get the peeing in the open thing that French men have going on - maybe you could ask the Hubs? I have seen a dude pee on a wall outside a public toilet. Could you not have walked an extra 10 steps? Once we pulled up in this tiny town at the only traffic light, outside the pub. I looked out my window and there was a drunk guy holding on to the light, peeing on it. I was in the passenger seat so he was about one foot past my window, and to make it worse, then I got eye contact (the two in his head, not the one below) which was really ewwww. He couldn't have cared less!

  9. There must be something in that defective Y-chromosome that causes men to think that peeing outside (and in public) is ok. My husband used to rush home whenever we had been out at night so that he and the Lab could pee together in the corner of the yard. Eeeeuuuwww!

    Love Honey's Honey!

  10. Awww that is some serious cuteness! Quick question, are French people born with some gene within them that gives them the ability to be up until the late hours sober or not? I could never keep up with my Fenchies and that was in high school!

  11. That is serious cuteness and much how I feel about my brothers' kids - they will forever be cooler than me. It can't be helped! It sounds like such a fun day :)

  15. Whoopin' it up in the village. I've never played petanque but it sort of seems to me that it would be like watching paint dry. Except for the winning statuettes. I want one of those!
