Here are some more shots of our first few days in France.  We are having a great time staying at the Simoni Chateau.  They have bunnies, a trampoline, a zip-line, a huge yard, and a farm next door.  Yesterday we went down to the park in Uriage where there was a live jazz concert going on.  The kids are having a great time…while we are busy trying to find an apartment, car, open bank accounts and many more fun things!

Yesterday Mary Ellen took me to a local farm where she usually goes once a week to buy her produce.  It was a vegetarian’s dream!  For only 10 euro I bought a huge crate filled with assorted veggies.  Fresh garden-grown eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, several heads of lettuce, topped with tonnes of basil.  

I also had my first trip to the grocery store.  Oh how I have missed the yogurt and cheese!!  I saw bottles of wine for 79cents….about $1.10 CDN….and Matea got to see her first skinned rabbit.  I picked out my favourite chevre cheese for a treat, and I bought George ‘petite swiss’….a very thick cream type thing that you dump out onto a plate and sprinkle with sugar.  yum!
