A Weekend in Lyon

We just celebrated a super long weekend in France. Both Kieran and Lucas were off from Wednesday until Sunday! We spent Wednesday at home working in the garden and doing other household projects, then headed into Lyon on Thursday to spend the weekend visiting friends.

While wandering around the city we came upon street art,

While I have no regrets about moving to wider open spaces, it is always fun to revisit our old stomping grounds. Cities are so vibrant and full of energy, you can't help but be affected by the spirit of things there!
