Rob and I finally managed to go to Montreal this weekend. This was a trip that should have happened weeks ago, but then Rob got sick, then I got sick, and our trip had to keep getting postponed. Anyway, we woke up on Saturday morning (it was BEAUTIFUL & SUNNY), packed up our stuff (it's funny how Bosco's bag was the same size as ours!), and hit the road. We made a pit-stop at Starbucks, Rob got coffee, and I have lately become a fan of their organic Happy Planet fruit smoothies (tree-huggers beverage...and very yummy), and drove to Montreal with the music loud and the wind in our hair. We arrived at my sister's place to a huge, Korean FEAST that my mother had prepared...sushi, dumplings, shrimp, kimchi...and belated birthday cake for Rob!!! So yummy. After all chatting for a bit, Sue and Christian left for the evening to attend a wedding, Rob left with the dog to visit his parents, which left my mother and I to babysit...something we've done numerous times in the past. This time we both fell asleep on the couch, and awoke to Audrey calling us on the phone. Audrey was commenting on what kind of babysitters fall asleep, when I looked up and saw my youngest nephew playing with SHARP ADULT scissors...trying to remove the label off of a Gingerale bottle! Ha ha ha, little bugger dragged the chair to the cupboard, climbed up and helped himself to the supplies he needed for his "experiment". I told Audrey (after first telling Edouard to be VERY CAREFUL) what he was doing. I wonder if she'll trust me to look after the girls when they come next month?!? Anyway, it was amazing to spend some quality time with my family. Romy and Victor had fun playing with Bosco and giving him way too many treats. And my super-nice mom packed a cooler full of food for us to take back to Ottawa, so I don't have to cook when I'm tired after work this week. She's the best! Hope you all had a fun weekend too...I'll post pictures as soon as I get Susan to email me some!
