Mont Tremblant

The family decided to take a weekend for some much needed R and R. It was a great weekend and I think everyone got to enjoy at least one part of it. At this time of year it is still quiet and skiing is just starting with snow making efforts on there way.

Although we didn’t ski, Matthew took the time to enjoy the snow and had a great time staying in a hotel as if it was his first time.

Both Alex and Félicia took the time to do a little shopping and indulged in some new food. Alex practiced her photography and Félicia enjoyed her time with Matthew on the slopes.

Skating the Rideau

Great day on the canal skating and eating beaver tails. Weather was great at -1. It was cloudy but nice. The canal was full of people on a day like this but we found a lot room to skate and pull the kids. Stopped for some beaver tails as is necessary when on the canal. All in all it was a good day with family and friends.

Pumpkin Picking 2010

It is that time a year again and you know what that means. Natalie has already started think about Halloween. So we decided to get together with some friends and pick pumpkins at a near by farmers field.

Getting to the pumpkin patch was fun riding in the back of a tractor. Of course Matthew’s fascination with the tractor almost got him run over.

As you can see it was all about the kids. For some reason when kids get to do something by themselves they and we just seem to enjoy it more. For Thea and Matthew it is about how strong they can be lifting the big pumpkins up. I think Thea won.

Even Thea’s mom found here perfect pumpkin.

Ultimately it was Dana who found the best pumpkin out in the distance.
