Bastille Day, Brooklyn Edition

This past weekend, we were invited by our friend, Jean-Jacques from the restaurant Provence en Boîte, to our old neighborhood in Brooklyn to celebrate Bastille Day.  For the past 11 years, Jean-Jacques has been hosting a block party in Carroll Gardens to celebrate Bastille Day, or what the French calls le 14 juillet.   The afternoon was a blast as we listened to live music, danced and ate classic French picnic food.  It was fun for everyone, including Brady our dog who ventured into Brooklyn for the first time.

The nice thing about staying in the US for the month of July is that we’re able to catch up with friends whom we usually do not get to see during the school year.   Almost every single summer weekend has been spent with friends and family, a pleasure without a doubt yet definitely exhausting.  Now I’m almost ready for vacation…
