Canada pics

   This is our weekend, as told through pictures.
 Old Quebec







 I've never seen this plant before. Anyone know what it is?

 This is a vegetable garden used to supply local restaurants.

 I would've love to take this tour, but it was quite expensive for our whole family to go on.



 The foliage was so pretty.

 A quick glimpse inside one of the shops.
 We loved seeing all of the shops. I wish we had stopped in more of them.
 And of course, we couldn't leave out the Canadian post. I even forced myself to go into a post office and order stamps in French! (It was terrifying)
 Beautiful fountain

 Tim, who is allergic to pumpkins called this place "Death village."  That giant puppet-like thing was pretty awesome.
 This pirate ship display was pretty cool too.



City hall
 This small alleyway had a bunch of art. Again, I wish I had spent longer here and bought myself a present. (The boys rushed through so I didn't get as much time as I had hoped. At least Tim got a neat picture)
 Chateau Frontenac
 St. Lawrence River

 This guy was hilarious. He was walking around the boardwalk and asking tourists for "a small donation." Once you gave him a donation, you rolled a dice and he had a task to complete depending on what number you rolled. Tim got a 1 and the guy had to sing a song. He chose to try to get through Despacito, which was hilarious. It was just a fun time so we went with it.



 In my search for poutine, I found Le Chic Shack, which I had read about before our trip. Yummy lunch. Heads up though, they roast pumpkin seeds in the same oil they cook fries and poutine in. Glad I asked (in French.. yay!)
Patiently waiting in line while mom takes an extreme close up:

 On Sunday we took a trip to the aquarium. Tim took some AWESOME pictures. I'm going to share his blog with you tomorrow and you can see his pics there. Here are a few of my guys.
