Dinner & The Market
We've been back from vacation for about a week now and finally settling in at the house. It's good to be home, for sure. However, since we've been gone out of the house so long we need food! So, I decided I'd take the girls over to the village for dinner and the market to pick up some little things. We all sat down at the kitchen table and made a little shopping list. Ivy's wants were all sugar related and some 'red juice' and fruit snacks. Gissy said she'd like to have some apple cider and some goldfish crackers. Time to hit the road!
We finally made it over to the village after about 15 minutes. I let both girls out of the car and we went up to the cafe for dinner. Cafe de Flore - it's really quite cute in here!
The girls instantly saw the pastry case and ice cream. They wanted that of course, before dinner. I had to read the menu board behind the counter and really put my French to the test.
They both decided on having a small grilled cheese panini's. I had a tuna sandwich and a small latte. They both got special little shakes too! I let the girls pick out where we would sit and we waited for the girl to bring our food.
They brought us out food after about 15 minutes and boy, we had a lot on our plates! Before we left the house both girls had made a deal with me that they would eat their entire dinner. If they were able to do that and behave at the restaurant they could each pick out a sweet treat!
They both finished all of their meal and both used their manners, I was so proud! They both went to the pastry case and Ivy picked out a pink sprinkle donut and Gissy picked out some blue and pink macroons.
We walked down the flight of stairs to head back to the street and walk over to the open-air market. I told the girls they needed to stay close and not to touch anything unless I was going to buy it. They had fun looking at all of the food that was for sale, even stinky fish!
We picked up some flour, sugar, rice, baby corn for Giselle, apples for Ivy and some flowers for me from the cart out front. The man running the market today was very sweet to the girls and offered them each an apple.
Back to the house with full bellies and a full basket in the trunk!
We got home and emptied all of our goodies into the cupboards and baskets. We can't wait to go back to the village again! Maybe next time we'll go for a movie and an ice cream!
