Happy Bastille Day

Cold, but mostly dry today. Good enough to go to the French festival in the courtyard of the city hall. 
We ran into our wine merchant from Geldern who gave us another good recommendation as we are learning about French wines. 
 Sophie enjoyed her crêpe with Nutella while listening to French chansons. 
 There was an excellent face painter. She actually matched most face paintings to the kids' outfits, but Sophie had her heart set on a pink butterfly. 
On the other side of the Rhine we were able to spot the annual Kirmes (fun fair), but we will save that for another day (i.e. tomorrow).
