Fondue is Our Tradition

I'm trying to avoid things that are obviously French while Domitille is visiting, but our summer vacations have traditionally included a fancy fondue dinner in recent years. Dorito was pleased when everyone agreed to dress up and go out, including Gr. Judy and Gr. Gerald who are in Minneapolis for Catholic diocesan meetings. What a fun three hours we spent together. The Quattro Fromage cheese fondue and the Coc a Vin left our bellies bulging. But the possibility of choosing three dessert fondue pots was the ultimate treat because it meant no arguments. The twins had the S'mores fondue, Dorito chose Cookies and Cream flavor, and the senior citizens picked Bananas Foster Flambe-at Mercedes' request. We sang to Dorito in French: "Joyeax Anniversaire!
Joyeax Anniversaire!
Joyeax Anniversaire, Francis!
Joyeax Anniversaire!"
Domitille doesn't like the way his name sounds with her accent so she calls him Francis (his middle name), and he calls her "Domi" for short.
