We were so excited to experience La Grande Roue de Montréal during our recent visit to Old Montréal. Located right on Old Port where all the action is at, this was the perfect place to be. La Grande Roue is a climate-controlled as well as the tallest observation wheel in Canada. Allowing visitors to see the city and its beautiful surrounding in a 360 panoramic view from 60 meters in the air, which is equivalent to a 20 story building. On a clear day, visitors can see 28 km away.
On our last stop in our recent 11 Day Road Trip in Canada, we stopped in Quebec City. If you have not been to Quebec City, you have GOT to put this on your list.
We were fortunate to stay at Delta Hotels by Marriott Quebec. Located in Downtown Quebec, within a few minutes walk to most attractions and in particular, nearby Old Quebec City, it was the perfect place to be.
Does your child tend to get swimmer’s ear? I don’t know about your kids but my kids tend to get swimmer’s ears whenever they go out for a swim. It never fails, especially with the older one. However, this does not stop us from letting the boys enjoy their summers. They love to swim and we make sure they are able to enjoy their swimming and the time afterward.
I don’t know about you but I have mixed feelings about August. Why? I love summer breaks and having my kids home. Taking a break from our busy schedule where we can relax. At the same time, August always creep up on me reminding me about all the things I have to do to get them ready for back to school. I feel like summer just really got going and before I know it, it will be gone.
We all look forward to those summer months when we can relax from the daily grind. School, homework, music lessons, sports practices and games, evening programs, etc… The list can go on and on. Our days start out early and end late into the evening. I don’t recall it being this hectic when I was a kid. It can be so stressful for all involved.
During our trip to France last spring, my carry-on bag busted at the wheels and zippers making it a bit difficult. Fortunately for us, we were visiting family there so we were able to “borrow” one of their suitcases to help us get through our trip. I believe their suitcase is still sitting in my basement. I may have to send it with my mother-in-law when she goes for a visit in a couple of weeks. While I have been meaning to purchase a new one, there are just so many options out there that I just couldn’t decide.
With 10,000+ lakes in Minnesota, you would guess that there is no shortage of outdoor water fun. However, there are just so many months that we can enjoy the outdoor water fun. For those rainy days or cold winter months where the kids are asking for some swimming fun, what better way to take them than to an indoor waterpark. Minnesota does not disappoint with its indoor water fun option.
