Our last few days in France! I was going to miss this place!
We spent the day boating again. It turns out we really enjoy it as a family!
All of my men are anglers so we fished from the banks of the island across from our cottage. It turned into a contest, as many things do with boys, so I abandoned their silliness.
Instead I took to skipping stones only to have Owen challenge me to a rock skipping contest. Boys!
When we got back to the cottage, I made frogs legs for dinner. It seemed a fitting last dinner in France.
The boys offered to clean up for Finn and I so we could have some alone time together.
“Dude, Aiden! Did you grow up in the barn? You gotta sweep the crumbs onto the plates. You don’t sweep them on the floor, assclown!”
“Get a vacuum, bro.”
“We wouldn’t need to vacuum if you did it right. You vacuum!”
“I’ll vacuum if it gets me outta this kitchen. Get a room you two!”
“Yeah! We didn’t offer to clean so you could get nasty down here. Go upstairs!”
So we took their advice. Smart boys!
They got into trouble on their own, too. Oh well.
Finally, it was time to head home.
We had the boys pack their trucks early in the morning so we could explore and then head to the airport.
We spent most of the day snorkeling and swimming.
Finn learned to windsurf.
And Owen brought home this sassy ass bird to go with the lizard he found.
Finn and I continued our tradition of making the boys uncomfortable. They’ll be leaving before we know it so I might as well make the most of our time together!
