On the Road: Summer 2013 – The South of France

22 Aug

As quickly as summer arrived it is almost behind us now. We just returned from the final leg of our summer 2013 tour – this time in the south of France, and now we’re ready to put the finishing touches on the baby’s room and settle in for her arrival. In the meantime, here are some photos from our time with some good friends in a town close to Saint Remy de Provence and another set of friends in Belgentier.

{The view from the pool. It’s amazing how if you go just an hour away from Provence it becomes super arid. I felt like we could have been in Arizona}


{The girls deciding which models are the prettiest}


{Even the little ones took advantage of some poolside magazine reading. P.S. they’re 4, 7 and 5 years old}

Hope your summer was as enjoyable as ours was!

Last stop: Vichy
