Uncle John Comes to Visit

My brother John came to visit for the weekend. Somehow the weekend turned into a rugby theme. Fiacra is now obsessed with all things rugby, Ailbhe is obsessed with all things John.

We had a busy weekend. Connell, John and Fiacra went to a rugby game on Friday night, Bordeaux-Begles against Racing Metro, which Bordeaux won. On Saturday, we went downtown and wandered around. We had lunch at our usual spot on the steps of Grand Theatre. Fiacra had a birthday party in the afternoon and Connell, John, and Ailbhe went for a swim in the outdoor pool. After making a quick dinner of french toast for Connell and the kids, John and I biked downtown for dinner. The kids were delighted with the dinner plans, Connell probably not so much. John and I had a lovely dinner, I love being downtown Bordeaux at night, it's always busy with a great vibe.

On Sunday, we went to the market by the river and had one last rugby game before John had to leave. The kids are very eager for John to visit us in Canada.

John, Fiacra, and Ailbhe

When Fiacra got out of the shower on Sunday night, I noticed him grabbing fistfuls of his hair in a very agitated manner. I asked him what was wrong, and he said "I have just so much hair, way too much." I think he is considering a buzz cut. Maybe Ailbhe is not the only one John-obsessed.
