This past week flew by. The highlight was a family wedding this past weekend, in the South Western part of France. But before I get to the photo dump, I did get in all my workouts. NYC Marathon – 7 weeks went down very well.
Monday : 60 minutes of running including some sprints. It was supposed to rain, but it turned out very sunny on my lunch time run.
We had some excitement in our town that evening, because there was a fire and you could see it from our place. It was controlled quite quickly but it is still quite unsettling.
Tuesday : Full body workout with lots of squats and upper body work
Wednesday : Off
Thursday : Full body workout
Friday : 10K run + road trip. We had about 400 + miles to drive for my niece’s wedding. So, we brought (another) niece a long and had a fun road trip…
…before meeting up with lots of family members on Friday evening in a tapas bar. It was nice enough for us to eat outside.
Saturday : 60 minutes of running including some sprints. We had rented a house in the middle of a pine forest. This coastal town is swarmed with people in the summer, so it was wonderful to take advantage of the empty streets.
It was then time to get ready and we were off.

Outside being silly :
Two of three sister in laws :
Mass was followed by appetizers at an oyster bar / restaurant, over looking the ocean (I don’t like oysters but this area of France is famous for them) :
My husband and one of his brothers :
The bride, groom (to the right of the bride) and all the cousins :
Moving on to dinner, in a tent on the beach :
Dinner was followed by lots of dancing until the wee hours of the morning.
Sunday : Informal lunch for those still around….
…and lounging all afternoon with this view :
I have spared you the hundreds of family photos and selfies… wanting to give you a flavor of a French wedding.
So here is just one, with my preferred SIL. You can see the Pyla Sand Dune in the back.
And that is a wrap !
Tell me one thing about your week! Do you like oysters ? Any family weddings this summer ?
