Our last day that we spent with the cousins was spent at our "home" for a fun afternoon. Husband and I threw together a little french lunch--including an introduction to Barefoot Contessa's Macaroni and Cheese--which was a new dish to them --but one that young and old alike enjoyed (the guests also  included a 3 year old and an 80+ year old grandmother!).
While some took naps, we enjoyed La Moulin's gorgeous garden and played pétanque  ( a game where the goal is, while standing inside a starting circle with both feet on the ground, to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball). There were also trampolines and badminton to play and it was a very happy ending to our trip.
Back to reality and looking forward to 2012! Count your blessings and give hugs to those you love (or a kiss on each cheek if you happen to be french!)
