This past weekend was the Fete du Vin (aka wine festival) in our town. September is the month of grape harvesting so all throughout the region towns are celebrating with huge festivals. Wine booths are set up all around town, there are rides for the kids and parades throughout the weekend. We only made it down one of the days, but truthfully that was enough. Being around a bunch of drunks is never fun, especially when you are 9 months pregnant and can't enjoy the wine!
I just realized that I haven't posted any picture of our new city. Usually it is a very quiet town so I will have to take more pictures another day to compare with the hecticness of the wine festival.

|Just got this stroller attachment this past|
weekend. It is so Jack can now stand on our
stroller while Lilly is in the stroller.

|Pretty sure there is no hotel here anymore|

the day, but Jack didn't mind
