French mother's day

Today France celebrates Mother's day. In France it falls on the last Sunday of May, and since this year the Pentecost fell on that day, the Mother's day is thus postponed to the first Sunday of Jun.

In the conjunction of Estuary 2009 arts festival in Nantes, we invited our parents in laws over to unveil the latest creation of the Royale de Luxe, a French mechanical marionette street theater company founded in Nantes. The theme this year is about the waking of a giant who was buried under the Loire River who has a mission to find his niece.

The parents in laws were impressed by the street theater show and we had a nice evening which ended with this yummy cake.
