Kids And Teens In Lafitte

Like every summer, Lafitte is packed with children and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 17... They enjoy many activities, such as playing with toys (one of which seems to Benjy...), and are served such desserts as delicious, thin homemade crêpes with sugar or jam...

They are also busy rehearsing a play; it's now a Lafitte tradition to produce a play in the summer. Directed by a couple of experienced adults, who often have a professional background in the theater, the little ones and the big ones rehearse for a few weeks before presenting two performances for friends and relatives who come from all over the region or from Paris to applaud them.
Last year, it was Shakespeare's magical and exquisite Midsummernight's dream, while this year it's The Revizor, a hilarious work by Gogol set in provincial Russia.

Ahhh, I made the mistake of introducing my son to crepes at a very young age and now at the ripe age of 5, he asks for them daily! Just made some this morning... strawberry banana with chocolate sauce & cream...sounds more like dessert than breakfast, I know - he's spoiled a bit! ;)

WORLD IN A PAN - but as you didn't visit this year, they weren't home made jams... Sigh.
