I think you will agree with me that we could all use some words of inspiration or motivation. I know I do! We all need that quote of the day to keep pushing forward. We face difficulties and hard times in our life. These difficulties can break our spirit and bring us down and makes us feel uninspired.
Are you looking for a couple’s weekend getaway? In your day to day busy-ness there is much to desire with time away from everything and everyone. Yes that includes the kids as well. We were fortunate to be able to get away for a few days of just the two of us to reconnect and re-shift the focus to us.
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.
