Les Grande Vacances

We are finally back from our family summer holiday.  What a wonderful time we have had.  Lots of fun, sun and happy memories and nearly 700 photographs.  Don't panic I won't share them all!

We returned this year to Barbentane. You may remember we went in 2011.  Same house, beautiful location. The boys had a great time, such a lovely property with lots of room for them to run around.  We didn't really do too much sightseeing as the weather was so hot, all we really wanted to do was sit/play by the pool.  But we did catch a few markets, watch the bull run/fight, visit a friend and enjoy a few meals out.

Rachel got a nice surprise when Stu turned up on the Tuesday for a week.  He had originally decided he couldn't come due to work, but then a few weeks before departure decided that he could manage a week, so we decided to keep it as a surprise from the rest of the party.  It was great to see their faces. He proved a big hit with the boys and gave Pops a bit of a break from swing duties.

Rebecca and Tim managed a few days away in Carcassonne, leaving us with the little boys.  So without further ado here are some photos.
