Nineteen years ago, we spent Easter in France. The kids were little and I was exhausted, as all mothers of young children are, but this set the bar for us with Easter celebrations in France.
The morning began with mass in a chilly church. When we rturned to our friends' apartment, the children had an Easter hunt -- not actually an Easter egg hunt, but our friends had purchased little gifts for the kids, which was nice.
The apartment looked festive with yellow tulips blooming. The children and I enjoyed some snacks before the meal. It looks like Grace is mad, so I'm probably trying to settle her down.
This side table is full of scrumptious food. I remember that we had lobster as a starter then rabbit as the main dish, and of course, there is bread, and some cookie covered with chocolate for dessert.
This is the children's table, although the picture is kind of dark. Notice how attractive everything looks, even for the children.
I hope you enjoyed your weekend, whether you celebrate Easter or not. For us, gathering family together is always a reason to celebrate, and in just a few weeks, we'll be in France again.
Thanks so much for playing along with Dreaming of France.
