Québec Adventures

I eu un grand temps im Québec! 

That is supposed to say "I had a great time in Québec!"...not sure Google got it right.

Our good friends from grad school work up there in a town outside Québec City. Fortunately, we were able to stay with them, making this one of the cheapest vacations we've ever had. It was also one of the quickest vacations because two whole days were spent in the car. Good thing everybody is still getting along. ;) My dad happened to have time off from work, so he came along for the adventure. (It was nice to have a "real adult" with us.)

For the past 5 years, we have celebrated the Spookfest with scary movies and lotsss of candy. I love this family like they are my own and cherish our time together.

Canada is such a beautiful country. Granted, I've only been to small parts of Québec and Niagara Falls. Nevertheless, I am enamored with the landscape and the kind, gentle people. The Québécois people were so patient with our botched French. We learned how to say "I'm sorry" and "Do you speak English?" Those pretty much got us by when our friends weren't with us. My dad was the funniest and made me nervous every time he addressed someone. You think you've experienced embarrassment by a parent? Just wait until you're in a foreign land. Hahahaha! 

It's time to get myself back up and running to prepare for a rebrand, the holiday season, and my next wedding in February. I have a feeling the next 3 months are going to fly by!!
