Chateau-Queyras Weekend

It's been almost a month now since we spent this outdoor-y getaway at the south of France - Queyras National Park. This site is one of my most favorite places here in France. Too beautiful, too wild, too much diversity and too much activities to offer. Frenchguy's friend celebrated his birthday there, and as always, we had activities à la carte to indulge to - hike, bike, via ferrata, kayak, raft, canoë... I won't focus on the menu since it's a man's party, we had sausages, barbeques, beers, wines.. and a lot more wine.

We started our adventure with a hike - which the girls adored.

Then I did via ferrata.. Frenchguy did the same with another group (because we need a babysitter while the other one does an activity).

And did rafting .. while the girls and Frenchguy were doing siesta.
Now, I can't wait for the next adventure.. next stop - Gorge du Verdon, still at the south of France.

That's what's missing in our life, vacation days (we used 2 weeks worth earlier this year but we want more)!

Hope you and Haze have (or had?) fun!

P.S. I'm going through my blogger friends and updating them on my new url: Thanks, Analyse.

Whew! Looks extreme to me but I like the fitness side to it. No wonder you don't look like you just had babies! :)
