{21 - 27 July 2013 | week 30}

28 July 2013

It's week 30 and it's all about yellow, a tribute to Chris Froome, winner of the Tour de France 2013 :)

What happened this week ?

Back from holiday and still enjoying the visit of Grandma and Grandpa. The week kicked off with Chris Froome's awesome victory of the Tour de France 2013. Whilst I missed some of the televised stages due to being on holiday, I still managed to keep up to date via my iPhone.

We found lots to do this week, a visit to the lac at Virieu le Grand for a picnic and swim. Three items on the bucket list got ticked off; swimming at Champagne en Valromey, revisiting Chanaz and the Lac du Bourget. I have insert pages with 18 photos from this trip, but these are not shown. The weather has been touching on {heatwave} all week and we have made full use of the home swimming pool ! On Saturday the tent was erected so that the children could sleep out overnight in it (another bucket list wish).
