Totally Frenched Out

What do you when you have a belle-famille that doesn't drink? Why you spend the weekend doing all kinds of wholesome family activities of course!

You go rollerblading by the sea:And then you introduce them all to bowling, air hockey (hair okay they will say) and pinball machines:
You fall into bed exhausted by all of that fresh air and then wake up the next day to take a walk in the forest:Until you come across a patch of wild asparagus and someone has the bright idea to run back home and get a knife so it can be eaten for lunch:And then while asparagus hunting, you will come across some crazy characters:And then it's back home for lunch, after which everyone will sit around working on an insanely hard puzzle:
Let's see how that used to compare to weekends with the ex-belle famille in Bretagne:

Eat. Drink. Smoke. Nap. Eat. Drink. Smoke. Lather, rinse and repeat.

I might miss the alcohol at times, but the rest is all definitely a breath of fresh air!

Sounds like a great time. (And gives me the itch to do a puzzle!)

This reminds me of spending the day with my responsable and her family. They were very light drinkers :)

I like a nice glass of wine/kir/Bailey's milkshake... (!!) but I like that my evenings/weekends don't revolve around it (almost typed evolve! yikes!)

Your new weekends sound so much better than the old ones. I'm happy for you. You can save that glass of wine for a night out on the town with girlfriends every once in awhile.

Aw, jealous. My belle-famille is still mostly, drink, eat, drink, eat. Though they work pretty hard, too, so we also garden and they serve customers.
