Time to get caught up on everything.
THIS picture was taken after we butt about 40 cars waiting in line at the border crossing because we thought we could go through the “Trucks” lane that doesn’t even require a stop. We were wrong. And we were punished. This is our sheepish “we’re kind of embarrassed and kind of sorry but also mad that we didn’t get our way” face.
But not to worry! We were soon back to taking funny face pictures of ourselves with our camera phones 🙂
Our hotel: “Holiday Inn Downtown Chinatown Montreal” we never quite leave America when we leave America do we? Thank goodness for that 😉
First stop: poutine! (eaten during Olympic synchronized swimming watching, both were surprisingly enjoyable!)
Notre Dame Basilica!
Inside ANOTHER Notre Dame basilica (there are a lot of churches there 🙂
Naturally, the highlight of the trip
He wrote that with the markers he always carries around in his pants
“The Black Watch”-Canada’s answer to a “concerning” rise in American military strength in the 1800’s. They should be worried. They have, at times, been worthy of being in our crosshairs-said no American president ever.
La Matraca mexican joint. YUM
Dr. Frost ice cream-also YUM. The timing of this picture is providential, though, as we had just seconds before seen a nudey band of protestors stand in that very place. yikes
This guy thinks the sixth seal has just been opened
hashtag fireworks on the Charles, 4th of July, Happy Independence Day now everyone’s going to die
We left Luke at home. We needed some “no-drama” time together.
Smilin’ faces at Harvard’s botanical gardens
Trip to the Mapparium (very cool, btw) with Kathy and Phillip! Luke had just fallen asleep in the bathroom and I had to go in there (the boy’s bathroom!!) to wake him up for our tour. He was still a little sleepy and kept making grumpy faces at strangers but otherwise enjoyed the three-story, painted glass globe:
Just thought you guys might have wondered, “Julie, you’re so lucky, what’s it like to come home to the famously handsome, witty, intelligent, famous (yes famously famous) Luke Drake?” Now you know. “Laptop Case Head.” It’s the best thing ever 🙂
