Quebec City!

Visiting Quebec City has been on my "to visit" list for several years.  It is incredibly charming, with much of the old 17th century buildings still intact.  Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America and it has held onto its roots.
This was on our drive to Quebec City.  We decided to take the scenic route, through the countryside along the St Lawrence River.  I was surprised at how different the architecture was; many of the roofs were metal.
Our hotel was right across the river from Old Quebec City.  The ferry ride was easy and lovely.

Brian found a cafe with amazing croissants and hot chocolate.  And when I say "amazing" I mean ahhhh-mazing!

 And, amazingly enough this is the last post about our crazy traveling adventures.  It's actually a little bit difficult to wrapped them up here, in this manner.  Life is always an adventure, but these months  (February 23, 2013 until August 27, 2013) were absolutely unforgettable.  There are many times I want to sit down and write about all the things I learned (about travel, our country, and myself) but it all seems a bit overwhelming and perhaps, too personal, to put in this space.  It's also so much into the perfect words.  Maybe all that is mulling in my head and heart will be able to surface out onto paper (or hard drive) in a honest, eloquent way.  But until then, I'm grateful I am able to document all that we do through photos and share them with you!

And I had to throw this one in.  This is actually in Vermont, at a rest stop on our way back south.  But I love that he just laid there and relaxed like that.  For just a few minutes.  Oh, how I love that boy!

Mount Tremblant, Canada

Brian found a great deal on a large, comfortable hotel room in the mountains of Canada.  It was a ski resort called Mont Tremblant.  I felt like we were at Sundance, but everyone spoke French.  We stayed there a few days and enjoyed our time.  The views at the top of the mountain were incredible.

My relaxing morning tea on the balcony.  So dreamy!
We took this gondola ride up to the tippy top of the mountain a couple of times.
My girl loves picking wildflowers.  From Texas to Quebec.

The "Skyline Luge" was an awesome way to ride down the mountain.

Her expression is saying, "What?  There's a toy inside my chocolate?!"
Isn't that a dream come true for any child? :)
We got her a couple more Kinder eggs while in Canada, cause we are good parents like that. ;)
Amazing, right?
