These pictures are from the last few hours in Canada. We definitely didn't stay long enough. Next time we visit Ohio, I want to drive the extra four hours North West of Ontario to Montreal! Aunt Paula says that makes you feel like you aren't even in North America anymore. She says everyone there speaks French, as that is their main language. I didn't know that either. There were a lot of people with stands set up, selling fruit and vegetables at the end of their driveways, once we got further into the town of Niagara on the Lake, and further away from the falls.
Captured Pieces, that shows a bride and groom who got married here and the photographer had to use a wide lens to get everyone in the picture at the same time.
a dog praying before he ate his food.) I remember we visited them
in Georgia one time when Jordyn was maybe 5 and during her prayers she added in to
"pray for Rachel and Michael" even though nobody told her to. Oh my
goodness, it was so sweet! And even though Peyton doesn't say many real
words, when we all sit around the table for dinner, she puts her hands out for us to hold and looks very excited. When we prayed
in Ohio Jeremy always got a big smile on his face, hearing us speak in
unison. Mommy says its because they are little and still remember Heaven, hearing the angels pray. I like that thought.
Fun fact: Canadians get their gas in liters, so the signs all read about 95 cents. I looked it up and there are 3.78 liters in a gallon, which equals to $3.59 per gallon in Canadian (or $2.78 American, which is kind of expensive since I think we're right around $2.00/gallon in Orlando).
that we did that I didn't take pictures of on my Canon (Mommy, Aunt
Paula and Uncle Larry took pictures on their phones) were after we drove
through the tiny town of Niagara on the Lake, we parked in between
Battlefield of Fort George and Mississauga Beach, where Uncle Larry and I
stood on the rocks. He helped me keep my balance while I took off my shoe
and sock so I could say, "I have stood in Lake Ontario!!" The houses in
that area were sooo cute and at least $400-600k ($309- 464k American) each even though some
were about the size of our new house.
On our way to lunch, we stopped
into Chocolate FX where I bought some granola that was on a great sale: Buy 1, Get 3 free! The Lawrenceville family restaurant they wanted to
take us to was closed on Mondays, so we went to Tim Horton's instead.
The Greek salad I got was very yummy & I picked the Canadian Maple
donut (instead of wedges) and it had surprise custard in the middle. My
Before leaving Canada, we stopped into the Duty Free store
where I bought baby Canada socks, just incase it was our first trip
together. (It was not. The doctor confirmed that this past Monday that I am not pregnant and I've started taking medicine to regular my system to work the way it should be.) I was getting excited to plan a trip with
Michael and our baby (a couple months after it's born, towards the end
of my maternity leave, whenever that may be) to Vancouver, then visit
various cities in Washington state and Oregon, like Portland. But Michael would rather
put that money towards a deck in our backyard. *Le sigh* Goodbye
Canada, you were wonderful!
