Weekend Trip to Canada!

This past weekend Brent and I went to Canada to spend the weekend with his sister Tracey, her husband and their 2 sons.  It was such a great weekend and I can't wait to go back soon!  It was also the first time I've ever visited Canada!

I had to snap a picture as we were about to cross the border!
When we got to Tracey's house we stayed in her son Seb's room and on the wall I saw this...
Brent's picture from playing college hockey!  I thought it was so cute and nice that his nephew had his picture hanging in his room!

After resting Friday night because we got in so late, we helped them with some items in their new house Saturday morning and then went to get the most delicious lunch I've ever had..poutine!!  OMG.  Delicious!! Nothing is as good as french fries with cheese curds and gravy.  Seriously.  Amazing.  We may have had it twice in 2 days!!
Another delicious food in Canada is Beaver Tails!  Beaver Tails are fried dough in the shape of a beaver's tail, and you can get them with a bunch of different toppings.  I got Nutella on mine because I love Nutella!
Later in the day we walked around Ottawa and saw all the sights!  His sister is in Quebec, but we visited both Quebec and Ottawa.  I loved seeing all the gorgeous buildings! 
On Sunday we helped them pack and move more stuff in the morning and then we packed up our stuff and headed out to visit the art museum, which was beautiful!  My body was having a tough time being strong enough to walk through the whole museum (it was huge), but we saw many of the exhibits and then we went to lunch and to walk through some of the gift shops.  Brent will not be happy about me posting this, but I think he looks like an authentic Canadian in this hat!! haha!!
As we were leaving we got lunch and in the restaurant we saw a Bitcoin ATM machine! Brent and I love the idea of Bitcoin, but in the states we haven't seen any Bitcoin machines.  Of course I was the tourist who took a picture of it! 
Another thing they have a lot of in Canada is pay phones!! When was the last time you saw a pay phone?? I haven't seen on in years!  So of course I took a picture of that too!!
When we were leaving we took pictures with the big bear at the duty free shop, and headed back over the border and back to reality!  I loved the weekend in Canada and was happy to have a weekend away!  Now it's time to start focusing on all the amazing things we have happening in our life right now and start planning for the big events coming up in the next few months!!!!! :)
